Casey Wellman is an undrafted hockey player who currently plays for the Minnesota Wild/Houston Aeros.  He split his time playing in the NHL and AHL this past season, playing 15 games with the Wild and 42 with the Aeros.  I wish the best of luck to Casey, because if he becomes a real NHL superstar, this card will mean that much more to me!

Andrew Brunette signed this OPC 2008 card which features him in a Colorado Avalanche, but shows him as a member of the Minnesota Wild.  I like Andrew’s autograph which features a large A and B and jersey number.  Andrew is a decent player putting up about 750 points in over 1000 games.  Good job Andrew!

Nice! A decent auto from Niklas Backstrom, the goaltender for the Minnesota Wild.  Although it looks like the ink didn’t stick as well as I had hoped, I’m still very glad he returned my fan mail.  Niklas Backstrom is definitely a top goaltender in the NHL and I’m positive he’ll be around for years to come.
