Ethan Bear

Ethan Bear, currently part of the Edmonton Oilers organization, drafted in the 5th round in 2015.  Of course, everyone recalls that being the "Connor McDavid Sweepstakes" draft but I still think that Ethan Bear has a decent shot of making the jump.  While he hasn't been given a real opportunity at the NHL level for...

Calvin Pickard

At the age of 26, Calvin Pickard has yet to make an impact on the Toronto Maple Leafs' starting goaltender debate.  While he's only played for two teams (and been a member of three, technically) and drafted in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft you gotta wonder when he gets a shot at the top spot. ...

Derrick Pouliot

Derrick Pouliot of the Vancouver Canucks has definitely not lived up to his #8 overall draft pick in 2012.  On the defensive side for the Canucks, they only recently picked up a stud defenseman in Quinn Hughes who appears to be that elite defender they've been after.  As of today, the top 5 include Alex...

Boone Jenner

Since that last time I got his autograph, tons has happened in Boone's career.  He's become the alternate captain, played five full season in the NHL and helped Team Canada win gold in 2016 at the IIHF World Championships.  In fact, he recently re-signed with the club for another four years, showing the confidence that...

Natalie Spooner

Natalie Spooner played for a number of teams in her playing career, starting out with the Ohio State Buckeyes for four seasons starting in 2008. She holds many of the team's records including careers goals scored. Once her college career finished, she moved on to play in the CWHL, getting drafted by her hometown Toronto... Continue Reading →

Curtis Lazar

I'm a huge fan of Curtis Lazar and it was unfortunate that he couldn't make it happen in Ottawa. Now that he's a Calgary Flame, he'll need to prove his worth as it's clear that Ottawa didn't believe in his future potential. He was traded in 2017, 3 years after being drafted by the Sens,...

Tyler Ennis

Standing at 5'9, you could probably say that Tyler Ennis is one of the smaller players in the league, using his speed and quickness to elude players. He has a high IQ and definitely utilizes it to his advantage when playing against players larger than him. Tyler had been a long time member of the... Continue Reading →

Mike Gartner

I love the grainy photo that Upper Deck used for this card, it really has an old time feeling when I look at it. I'm so grateful that Mike Gartner signed it in a blue sharpie. As you probably guessed, I didn't have to do a thing to prep this card.  Mike signed this card... Continue Reading →

Callum Booth

Without having done much research on Callum Booth, all I can tell you about him is that he's a young goaltender drafted in the 4th round by the Carolina Hurricanes in 2015.  While he hasn't had any NHL experience up to this date, he's still making headway as he was awarded with a new contract,...

Vincent Damphousse

A really nice autograph from Vincent Damphousse where he clearly has perfected signing his last name.  He probably saves a lot of time not fully signing out the entirety of his last name - which isn't so great for us fans that would love a nice signature.  Regardless, I'm thankful to add this to my...

Wendel Clark

One of the toughest competitors in the game, Wendel Clark signed my Team Canada Upper Deck hockey card.  This particular card was from the more recent, Canadian Tire set that was released only within Canada. As written above, Wendel Clark was a feared warrior for his fighting abilities.  I never paid much attention to him... Continue Reading →

Jillian Saulnier

I really wish there were a few more games of the CWHL so we could catch more of Jillian Saulnier on TV but it just seems like it would be a hard draw to compete vs the NHL & few junior team games that are on TV (oh, and other sports obviously!). It would definitely... Continue Reading →
