As I’m starting to get back into the CHL hockey cards (since ITG / Leaf put a hiatus on my favourite set of hockey cards), I’m starting to learn who is who again in junior hockey! Today’s post brings out Aaron Luchuk of the Barrie Colts.
Aaron finished the OHL season, tops in the league in points produced over the course of the regular season. He helped lead the Barrie Colts (for a bit of the season as he was traded from Windsor) to a 2nd place finish in the OHL Eastern standings. Unfortunately for the Colts, they were ousted by the Kingston Frontenacs in the 2nd round with Luchuk contributing a team high 17 points.
It appears as if all this hardwork had not gone unnoticed as Aaron signed on December 17, 2017 a contract for a three year, entry level deal. He was never drafted during the NHL Entry Draft.
I got this card signed through the Colts by Aaron this past season.
