Scott Gomez Jersey Card

If you thought Scott Gomez' days in the NHL were over because the Florida Panthers didn't re-sign him this summer after making him a healthy scratch for most of last season, the New Jersey Devils would like to remind you that loyalty still exists, and that they had a glaring need at center with all their injuries. And that there was a way to make their average roster age a bit higher. By offering Gomez a two-way deal. And promptly put him on the first line with Jaromir Jagr (who got injured).

I had written Gomez in March of 2012, sending 3 cards his way and never hearing back, and since he's the only Montréal Canadiens player to wear #91 in a regular-season game, I kind of had to revert to this jersey card for my Habs Numbers Project:
It's card #GJ2-SG of the UD Game Jersey sub-set of Upper Deck's 2009-10 Series 2 collection, showing him wearing the Canadiens' red (home) uniform #91, with a black swatch, probably from his days with the Devils.
