Braden Holtby is a 2008 draftee, being picked up in the 4th round by the Washington Capitals.  In the 2010/11 season, he was called up to play for the big club, where he won 10 out of 14 games.  He’s got fantastic potential to be a legitimate NHL goaltender and is currently ranked 2nd on the depth chart according the “Hockey’s Future” website.

A nice looking autograph from the Piz, and some small talk later, I managed to snag this little beauty.  I had presented Steve with this card, to which he responded “Woah, look at the beard on that picture”.  Needless to say, he’s a bit more clean shaven at this years Canucks training camp.
