Doan gets Gartner's autograph

SJS@ARI: Doan takes the ice with addition to jersey

Shane Doan gets an unexpected addition to his jersey, after Mike Gartner accidentally signs it while autographing sweaters before the game

  • 00:47 •

During Mike Gartner's Hall of Fame career, the sniper who scored 708 career goals was known for his amazing accuracy.

Not this time.

On Saturday night, Gartner was on hand as the Phoenix Coyotes celebrated their 20th season in the desert (the seven-time All Star had 44 goals for the Coyotes in his final two seasons). The team wore their original uniforms featuring the kachina doll Coyote logo on the front.

Gartner was given a pile of the old jerseys to sign, which he did so graciously. However, he also mistakenly signed Shane Doan's actual game jersey.

The Coyotes captain had a good laugh about it, Gartner said.

Doan told Gartner he was going to go with it and took the ice in a Mike Gartner autographed jersey.
