I was really hoping that Jordan Schroeder was going to end up as a long time, extremely productive player for the Vancouver Canucks. This isn’t the first time that I got his autograph, as I had actually met him in my days when I used to hound hockey players. Judging by previous 2009 posts, he was slated to go top 10 in the NHL Entry Draft although fell due to poor interviews with teams. At the time, I was happy with any Canucks prospects and always cheered on whomever we chose, regardless of personal issues.
Fast forward ten years later and Jordan is toiling in the AHL with the Rockford IceHogs. After his tenure with the Vancouver Canucks was up, he moved to his native state of Minnesota with the Wild, then Columbus and finally now with the Chicago Blackhawks organization.
I still hope that Jordan can still make his way back into the NHL as my minimal interaction with him in the past (and now a nice letter from Jordan) might show he’s matured a bit.
Gettin’ the auto
I sent a few hockey cards to Jordan Schroeder, such as this Hot Rookies card and got a pretty nice letter back from him too. It was unfortunate that he wasn’t able to turn into a full-time NHL hockey player but at 28, he still might have a couple of shots left. I sent this to the Rockford IceHogs of the AHL and got it returned, autographed, in just over a month.
Glad that Jordan is still helping teams succeed, unfortunately it’s in the AHL this time.
