Tyler Bozak, currently a member of the St.Louis Blues as of this season, came into the NHL as an undrafted player. For many years, the Toronto Maple Leafs had Tyler on their roster, spanning 8 full NHL seasons. He's averaged about .61 points per game, which over a course of an 82 game season is...

I am a big fan of the West Vancouver native, Morgan Rielly. He is a fantastic defenseman that currently mans the blue line in Toronto. Morgan has represented Canada on a number of occasions, beginning in 2011. At the IH18 tournament, he helped Canada win gold, as well as in the WC in 2016. Morgan... Continue Reading →
With the recent signing of John Tavares, Nazim Kadri easily slots in a third C role, right behind Tavares / Matthews. I think this will greatly improve the Leafs (as expected) since Kadri is a great shutdown forward. He seems to put up points, topping at 61 points and a -7 +/- rating that season....

A great return from Bobby Baun, Toronto Maple Leaf Alumni. Bobby played in the 50s, 60s and 70s in the NHL and had obviously helped the Leafs win cups in 1962, 1963, 1964, and 1967. Bobby was one of the hardest, cleanest hitting players of his time. Thanks for the autograph Bobby. It looks fantastic!
A quick 18 day turn around from Ben Scrivens, one half of the goaltending tandem in Toronto. He, alongside James Reimer will need to carry the workload until a deal gets done (perhaps with Roberto?). I'm super happy that he signed this card as this is my very first return from him. Thanks a lot... Continue Reading →
A nice return on this SP Authentics card by Dion Phaneuf. Dion is the current captain of the Toronto Maple Leafs and is probably one of the more consistent signers out there. Dion was a part of one of the greatest World Junior Teams, way back in 2005 (the time of the last lockout). Perhaps... Continue Reading →
A nice return from Mr.Johnny Bower, which was expected as this is wasn't my first return from him. He was one of the greatest goaltenders of his era and has won numerous awards, including the Vezina in 1961 and 1965. He helped the Leafs win the Stanley cup for 3 years in the 60s. Thanks...

A nice return from Felix "the cat" Potvin. Felix was a good goaltender, playing in the 90s and 2000s. He played for team like Toronto, Vancouver, Boston, Los Angeles and New York (Islanders). He was drafted 31st overall in the 1990 entry draft by the Toronto Maple Leafs. He had played with the Leafs for... Continue Reading →
Another former Canuck Darby Hendrickson signed this Maple Leafs rookie card for me. Darby is currently the assistant coach for the Minnesota Wild. Although Darby only played 40 games for the Canucks, I remember him as a good player (although not a top 6 forward). Thanks for the auto Darby!
A beautiful autograph from a stud player in Jason Blake. Ok ok, I kid, but Jason was a decent player in the late 2000's scoring a career high in points with the NY Islanders. I managed to get Jason's auto while touring California with my girlfriend. I'm sure she was the one who got this... Continue Reading →
Retired 6th overall draft pick Vincent Damphousse signed this card, along side 2 others for me. He was part of the Montreal Canadiens run, and win, of the Stanley Cup in 1993. During the playoffs that year, Vincent tallied 23 points in 20 playoffs games. You'd think Vincent had a chance at the scoring title,... Continue Reading →
A nice return by Mikhail Grabovsky has been on an upward trend in every season he's played in the NHL (with the exception of 2009, when he dipped 13 points from his previous season). I'm hoping that he'll be able to make a HUGE jump this year, as I have him in my hockey pool. ... Continue Reading →
