Torey Krug

Torey Krug was an undrafted prospect as he entered into his rookie season with the Boston Bruins.  He signed an entry level contract by current Oilers GM, Peter Chiarelli on March 25, 2012.  I'd say this was an outstanding signing by Peter as Torey has been consistent with his play ever since he's remained with...

Andy Moog

This is a really neat card to get signed by Andy Moog, three time NHL Stanley Cup champion.  Although the backup position is an important position when the starting goalie gets injured, Moog disagrees.  He won those three cups with Grant Fuhr leading the way.  While I never had a great chance to take in...

David Backes

One of my surprising returns this year is from David Backes. I'm not sure 100% why I figured that I wouldn't get this one back in the mail but I'm pretty happy that it came back (of course, like all others). David was gracious enough to return my fan mail in 41 days c/o Boston... Continue Reading →

Dougie Hamilton

I sent this jersey card, along with a few other cards to Dougie Hamliton of the Calgary Flames and one of the few players that signed for me very quick at the beginning of the year.  As seen in the photo to the left, Dougie personalized it for me. So far this year, the Flames... Continue Reading →

Andrew Alberts

I got my first actual, tracked, return in 2017 from stay at home defenseman, Andrew Alberts.  Having last played for the Vancouver Canucks back in 2013, I automatically took a liking to Andrew.  His style of play was not that of a highly touted, immensely skilled prospect but that of a hard nosed, physical type...

Milan Lucic

A great return for my SP Essentials set, signed by Vancouver boy Milan Lucic.  Milan is a great player, one that was passed on by most teams as he was drafted 50th overall.  I love these cards, as they sign so nicely.  I've still got lots of work to do for this set though!  Thanks...

Adam McQuaid

Big Adam McQuaid plays for the big, bad Bruins.  Standing at 6'4, he's a tall guy, and will hopefully full into his frame and become as big as Zdeno Chara.  He gracefully signed this Victory Rookie card in a nice black sharpie pen.  Thanks Adam, but I'm still pissed your Boston Bruins beat my Vancouver...

Milan Lucic

I'm starting up my blog again, now that the season is officially here!  What better way to kick off a new hockey season with BC boy Milan Lucic, also Stanley Cup winner, who sent me some returns from my June 28th, USA trip where I sent dozens of letters out!  I'm quite happy he signed... Continue Reading →

Phil Kessel

Wow! A really quick return from Phil Kessel.  I believe this was sent to his home address and returned in less than 2 weeks.  Phil is a fantastic sniper on a bad team.  He was traded from Boston to Toronto for a few draft picks, one of them ended up being Tyler Seguin.  Phil has... Continue Reading →

Andy Moog

Andy Moog is the goaltending coach of the Dallas Stars (the obvious choice of profession after retiring in the NHL).  Andy played in 18 NHL season, retiring in 1998.  Andy was drafted by the Edmonton Oilers, where he backstopped them to their first Stanley Cup finals, but was swept by the NY Islanders.  Andy was... Continue Reading →

Milan Lucic

Milan is a native Vancouver boy, but has definitely made a name for himself in the NHL.  He's a big guy standing at 6'4 and 220lbs.  He is known as a big power forward and always willing to drop the gloves with whoever is ready to fight.  I think Milan had gone to the bus,... Continue Reading →

David Krejci

David Krejci signed my card as well as many other peoples'.  David is currently 2nd in Bruins' scoring with 9 goals and 43 points.  He'll surely be relied on when the Bruins' make their playoff push to try and win the Stanley Cup.  Too bad he didn't sign his full name, but I'm still happy...
