I was so impressed that Daniel Briere, NHL All-star, signed these back for me. Daniel is your prototypical, diminutive NHL player who has not a lot of size but a lot of heart and skill. Daniel was drafted in ’96 to the then Pheonix Coyotes where definitely be a top 10 player if the NHL were ever to do a redraft of that entry year. Daniel started his NHL career, piling up 22 points in 64 games in his rookie […]
A great return from Chris Pronger, extreme veteran from the Flyers. He’s an Olympian, Stanley Cup winner and All-Star defenseman. I’ve had returns from Chris before, but happy as this is on my SP Essentials card. Thanks for the return Chris!

He’s signed a few cards for me before, and most likely will be signing many more for fans before his retirement. A cup winner and all around top NHL defenseman, he’ll be one player that the game will miss once he’s finally ready to hang up the […]
Date received: February 30, 2012 Total players responses: 477 Total 2012 responses: 80 Another nice autograph from Matt Read of the Philadelphia Flyers. Originally born in Calgary, AB, Matt grew up in Ilerdon, Ontario. He was an undrafted player, who worked his way up the ranks to become a player who is able to compete at the NHL level. Matt scored his first goal on October 8, 2011. Best of luck Matt, and I hope all works out for you.

Currently the assistant captain, Mike is there to provide leadership as well as chipping in points whenever he can. As many of the Capitals are experiencing, he’s on pace for a career low in points this year. Let’s hope they make the playoffs for Mike to get another […]
Date sent: June 22nd, 2011 Date received: December 2nd, 2011 Total time: 163 days Total players responses: 391 Total 2011 responses: 386 Hurrah, another NHL return! “JVR” is a 1st round, 2nd overall pick from the Flyers in the 2007 draft. He obviously hasn’t had as much success as number one overall pick Patrick Kane, but is on pace for another career season. Hopefully him, and his Flyers, can play at their current pace to ensure they remain in a […]
Date sent: August 4th, 2011 Date received: October 18th, 2011 Total time: 75 days Total players responses: 339 Total 2011 responses: 334 Another sweet active NHL’er return from Claude Giroux. He’s putting up some really good numbers this season, I’d say he’ll probably put up career stats! At the time of me writing this post, he’s projected to hit about 100 points this season. With the departure of Richards and Carter, he’ll be relied to provide more scoring than normal.
Date sent: March 21st, 2011 Date received: September 14th, 2011 Total time: 177 days Total players responses: 307 Total 2011 responses: 302 Another nice card autograph on this Rookie Class card by Upper Deck. This card was obviously signed by Ryan Parent, who is now playing for the Chicago Wolves under the Canucks organization. Ryan was involved in a trade which saw Shane O Brien go to Nashville. Thanks for the auto Ryan!
Date sent: April 1st, 2011 Date received: July 18th, 2011 Total time: 108 days Total players responses: 280 Total 2011 responses: 275 Yay! Braydon Coburn. A good young defenseman for the Flyers standing at 6’5″. This card (among another one of him in a Team Canada Jersey which can be found in the Team Canada section of my blog), was sent c/o Ritch Winter, his agent. It took about 3 months to get this return, but I’m happy with it! […]

Chris Pronger personalized this card to me! Chris has obviously not always been this nice to his opponents, cheap shots, stomping on legs, anything goes with this guy! There really isn’t any doubt how effective he is when he is on the ice, especially in the physicality department. He’s close to retirement, but I […]

In addition, he also is a short hand specialist, scoring 3 SHGs. At only 23 years of age, it is hard to deny the fact that he’ll be a staple of this team’s offense for many years to come.

The signature looks nice and complete unlike others who do a quick initials of their name. Michael is currently playing for the Flyers’ affiliate team, the Phantoms. He currently holds the record for most saves in an AHL game, with 98!
