A sweet return from Montreal pick and US World Junior competitor Alex Galchenyuk. He’s going to be a great component for Montreal going back into the playoffs. I’m super excited to have gotten a return from Alex as he’s one of the better prospects coming up into the NHL soon. Thanks for the autograph Alex!

I’ve been getting a decent amount of my Hero and Prospect cards back, which is great!  This time, this autograph is from Brett Ritchie, from the Sarnia Sting.  Brett was drafted by the Dallas Stars, and now currently plays for the Niagra Ice Dogs.  Thanks for the auto Brett!

Super quick return from #1 overall draft pick Nail Yakupov.  Nail personalized this Heroes and Prospects 2012 card of mine.  Nail was selected by the Edmonton Oilers, and is surely going to be in the Oilers line up this year.  There probably isn’t much that needs to be mentioned as I’m sure any hockey card autograph collector knows who Nail is!

Fortunately for me, Nail and Alex Galenchyuk’s returns came on the same day!  Nail has drawn comparisons to an Alexander Ovechkin type player, who hits hard and has a great shot.  Slated to go in either the 2nd or 1st position in this years’ draft, it’ll be exciting to see where he lands.  A quick return from Nail and Alex has me a happy kid!

Woah boy! Alex Galenchyuk is slated to be a Top 10/5 draft pick in this years draft!  Very exciting to have gotten his autograph, as players who have this much potential definitely are much harder to get autographs from when they hit the NHL.  He plays along side a fellow Russian in Nail Yakupov.   I hope I get his autograph soon! 😉
