I was lucky enough to get Chris Pronger, one of the toughest guys in the NHL, to sign this Team Canada /100 card. For those who never watched hockey in the 90s and 00s, Chris was always regarded as one of the top & toughest players to play against. My most vivid memory of Chris has to be the fact he helped lead the Edmonton Oilers to the Stanley Cup finals and within 1 game of winning the cup. They had eventually lost Game 7 to the Carolina Hurricanes that year (’06).
Other memories of Chris include the fact he represented Canada consistently throughout his career. He helped Canada win Olympic golds, World Junior Championships and Men’s International tournaments.
Plus he enjoyed smushing Justin Bieber at the 2017 NHL All Star Game.
