A very interesting autograph from Karl Alzner, currently of the Montreal Canadiens. While I’m sure he has a different autograph, depending on the context (ie. writing a cheque or even signing an autograph for a paid product), it is different. I googled up a few of his images and noticed that there are some very obvious differences between what I got back from Karl and other signed memorabilia. See: Panini America Overall, Karl has been a pretty successful NHL player, […]
Jeff Schultz is a former 1st round draft pick from the 2004 entry draft. Currently 31 years of age, Jeff has remained with only a couple of teams in his NHL career – the LA Kings and Washington Capitals. He played in 7 season with the Washington Capitals before signing with the LA Kings organization after a buyout was initiated by the team. Now that Jeff is with the Ducks organiziation, it’s clear his time with the Kings wasn’t as […]

He will be there to add more offense to the lineup (and obviously of a more physical presence as well =P). I’m thankful for this auto from Alex, as it’s my first time I’ve gotten his signature. Thanks Alex!

John Carlson is a great player for the Washington Capitals. He played his first full year in Washington, piling up 37 points in the process. John definitely has the potential to put up points as he previously scored 76 points […]

Nick Backstrom is really lighting it up for the Washington Capitals this season. I believe I sent it through the team last season, and am happy to see a return from him! He’ll need to be a lot better if the Capitals have a chance at the cup. Good luck this season […]

He managed to snag about half the games in net, where he provided 27 wins. Unfortunately all that great work last year didn’t mean a whole lot, with the acquisition of Thomas Vokoun. It looks like Michal will have to beat him out […]

What a nice autograph from Nolan Baumgartner, current Vancouver Canuck. Although he isn’t on their main roster as of now, he’s in a position to be a depth defenseman, probably between spots 8 – 10 (I’m guessing?). Standing at 6’2 and at the rip old age of 35 years old, Nolan can provide some height and wisdom […]

I had gotten his autograph via IP earlier in the season, and wasn’t really counting on this card to come back, as I thought Ottawa would be quicker known their TTM return history. I really like Sergei’s autograph, nice and bold signed in black. Looks great!
