Fantastic! Another Guy Lafleur autograph.  Guy continues to be one of the best and most consistent autograph signers out there!  The “Flower” won five Stanley Cups and was the 1st overall draft pick in the 1971 entry draft by the Montreal Canadiens.  Over a point a game player, he retired from the game in ’84 and returned back in ’88.  I’m super happy that he returned this to me!  Guy! Guy! Guy!

WOW!  An autograph from one of NHL’s great players when I was growing up.  Joe Sakic, dubbed “Burnaby Joe”, being from Burnaby, BC, was a skilled offensive player with a lot of heart.  Joe played his entire career with the Nordiques/Avalanche franchise, which spanned 20 years.  It’s kind of amazing to see what type of players this Quebec team had.  In addition to Joe, they also had Guy Lafleur, Peter Stastny, Michel Goulet, Mats Sundin, Owen Nolan and Eric Lindros.

Ron Tugnutt had quite a lengthy career with several teams in the NHL.  Currently an assistant coach for the Peterbrough Petes in the OHL, he spent some time as a color commentator for CBC and as a goaltending coach. Thanks for the quick sign Ron!
