Trevor Linden

Trevor Linden is one of the most iconic players of the Vancouver Canucks.  Of course, the argument for the Sedins and Pavel Bure can be made as well. Trevor got his start in the NHL by being drafted into the league in 1998 by the Vancouver Canucks and played a total of 10 years during... Continue Reading →

James Phelan

James Phelan, currently playing for the Texas Stars, is a CHL graduate, having played for three junior hockey teams.  Initially drafted into the CHL in 2013 by the Shawinigan Cataractes, playing two and a half season for the club.  He scored a total of 43 points during his tenure with the team. On December 20,... Continue Reading →

Drake Caggiula

Drake Caggiula came into the NHL with a ton of hype.  His role in the NCAA Frozen Four tournament where he potted a handful of points in the championship game and was named Most Outstanding Player of the tournament.  Overall for the season, he scored 51 points in 39 games. Coming into the NHL, there... Continue Reading →

Derrick Pouliot

Derrick Pouliot of the Vancouver Canucks has definitely not lived up to his #8 overall draft pick in 2012.  On the defensive side for the Canucks, they only recently picked up a stud defenseman in Quinn Hughes who appears to be that elite defender they've been after.  As of today, the top 5 include Alex...

Trevor Carrick

Trevor Carrick is a 2012 selection of the Carolina Hurricanes, yet has only played a handful of the games for the organization.  At this moment, he's played a total of 3 games in the NHL.  With each passing year, the team becomes harder to crack as new prospects get selected.  This year there already appears...

Craig Conroy

I'm a big fan of what Craig Conroy has done for the Calgary Flames.  Like Jarome Iginla, Craig has done so much for the city of Calgary by really being embedded into the community.  He's gone from player to management (at both the AHL and NHL stages!). Craig started his career by being drafted by... Continue Reading →

Zach Yuen

Zach Yuen was a 4th round pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft which was held at the Xcel Energy Center in Minnesota.  It was a draft which saw some notable names make their way into the NHL such as Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (1st), Nikita Kucherov (58th) and Johnny Gaudreau (104th). While Zach is currently unsigned... Continue Reading →

Matt Cullen

Matt Cullen has been around for ages! Born in 1976, Matt is still playing hockey in the NHL at the young age of 41.  Before this season, Jaromir Jagr was crowned the oldest player in the league currently but since he has left, the trophy now belongs to Matt.  For the record, Gordie Howe owns...

Alexis Gravel

I've said it many times but I'll say it again, I really like the fact that hockey players are so fan friendly.  Today's post is about Alexis Gravel, currently playing for the Halifax Mooseheads.  He had a pretty successful rookie season, splitting duties with Blade Mann-Dixon, who was nearing the end of his junior career. ...

Blake Wheeler

I'm pretty excited to get Blake Wheeler, the captain of the Winnipeg Jets.  He is an outstanding captain and has led the Jets to the playoffs last year.  Unfortunately for the team, they were knocked out in the Conference Finals, I wouldn't be surprised if they make it to the Stanley Cup Finals soon.  They've... Continue Reading →

Nikolaj Ehlers

I was pretty excited to get this Upper Deck "Star Rookies" card signed by Nikolaj Ehlers of the Winnipeg Jets. Nikolaj has become a nice addition to an already fantastic top 6 in Winnipeg and I strongly believe that Winnipeg will win a cup within the next decade, given the talent that they've accumulated through... Continue Reading →

Rafael Harvey-Pinard

Like many of the players in the junior hockey leagues, I haven't had much opportunity (or time!) to watch them play. I've been busy with other things going on in my life but with the help of Upper Deck, I should be able to keep a closer eye on things. Of course, I'll miss opportunities... Continue Reading →
