Jake Muzzin

Let's all agree that CHL is great but finally I'm able to write about an active NHL player!  Formerly a member of the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, Jake Muzzin has made a name for himself in the NHL.  He played for the Soo between 2006 - 2010, where he was named as the team captain... Continue Reading →

Marcel Dionne

I got this amazing looking card signed by none other than "Little Beaver" Marcel Dionne. Although Marcel charges $10 / autograph, I'd say it was well worth it for a HHOF inductee (1992) and one of hockey's 100 greatest players.  The autograph came back with a CoA and a beautiful signature that donned this Upper...

Rogie Vachon

I'm a little late to the party today, but today's blog post brings us Rogie Vachon, known best for his quick glove and stellar reflexes. He has earned the milestone of never letting in a penalty shot in his entire career. Little known fact that I just learned was that Rogie was the GM of... Continue Reading →

Dave Taylor

A nice autograph from Dave Taylor, clearly from the 1,000 point club.  Actually, Dave ended his career with 1,069 points, all with one team, the LA Kings.  Hailing from Lewack, Ontario, Dave was drafted 210th overall, 15th round in the 1975 NHL draft.  I'd say that pick up was likely on the same echelon as...

Jarret Stoll

I've met Jarret Stoll while I was in LA a few years back and he's always been accommodating to fans asking for photographs and autographs and clearly he has no issue with us sending him letters to get things signed as well.  Obviously now that Jarret is retired, it'll be much harder to meet with...

Jordan Nolan

A nice return from Jordan Nolan, two time Stanley Cup champion. Jordan played a pivotal, depth role within the Kings organization bringing all 6'3 of him towards the net.  While he'll unlikely ever score more than 20 points in a season, he's a crash and bang type of player and is an effective one at...

Marian Gaborik

A really nice return from current LA Kings forward, Marian Gaborik and Minnesota Wild all-time goal scoring leader. During the NHL entry draft which was held at the Pengrowth Saddledome in Calgary, Marian was drafted 3rd overall - just behind NHL all stars Rick Dipietro and Danny Heatley and three spots ahead of Scott Hartnell....

Anze Kopitar

Anze has been one of my favorite Kings players and was pleasantly surprised that I got a return from him! I had sent out a letter to Anze in the past but only once I got a return through the mail and another time in person. This one I had sent through to the Kings... Continue Reading →

Ryan Smyth

Sweet! One of my longest returns, this one from Ryan Smyth. Ryan is known as Captain Canada, as he's played in many International matches representing Canada. He was drafted 6th overall by the Edmonton Oilers, and had made numerous stops in other cities before returning back home to Edmonton in the 2011 - 12 season.... Continue Reading →

Dustin Brown

Dustin Brown, captain of the 2012 Stanley Cup champions, returned this card to me in just under a years' time.  He was definitely one of the better leaders this year, leading by example in his regular rough and tough nature.  I'd love to have this guy on my team, as he's the prototypical captain that... Continue Reading →

Anze Kopitar

Another sweet auto from a LA Kings player.  This time, Anze Kopitar was nice enough to sign this City Lights jersey card for me.  Anze has been lights out for the LA Kings this year, and will hopefully find more success in the playoffs, perhaps facing my team, the Canucks.  LA has significantly upgraded their... Continue Reading →

Davis Drewiske

I managed to snag Davis Drewiske's autograph through the mail, which took nearly 2/3rds of the year!  I don't doubt that Davis gets fan mail, but it's a bit funny to see it take so long!  I'm happy regardless, as I'll wait as long as it takes for any return, which makes the hobby so...
