The jersey Washington Capitals star Alex Ovechkin wore when he scored "The Goal" against the then-Phoenix Coyotes in 2006 fetched $111,930 at an auction recently.

Ovechkin's memorable goal put the Capitals up 6-1 in the Jan. 16, 2006 game at the then-Glendale Arena.

Goldin Auctions, which facilitated the sale, noted in its description that the jersey has "moderate game use with some team repairs and stains." It was also photo-matched to the Capitals' March 4, 2006 game against the Atlanta Thrashers.

The jersey previously belonged to a Canadian collector, who told Scott Allen of the Washington Post earlier this month that he paid "just a bit more" than $33,000 for it at an auction in 2018.
