Felix Bibeau

Drafted in the 2015 QMJHL Entry Draft, Felix Bibeau has lived up well to his draft position.  I do find that with junior hockey, it's always hard to predict where players may end up at the end of their careers but in this case, Felix is spot on.  He was selected 27th overall but currently...

Matthew Struthers

The tough part about getting these CHL Upper Deck hockey cards signed is the fact that many of these players.. I haven't had a chance to watch!  I'll have to figure out a way to at least catch highlights of these players, like Matthew Struthers, so I'll know who some of them are by the... Continue Reading →

Nicholas Porco

As you may have noticed, there are a ton of CHL players that I'll be featuring - this time it's Nicholas Porco.  It's great that the young players in hockey are willing to sign for fans, especially when they stretch all over the continent.  In fact, all over the world, players are willing to sign,...

James Phelan

James Phelan, currently playing for the Texas Stars, is a CHL graduate, having played for three junior hockey teams.  Initially drafted into the CHL in 2013 by the Shawinigan Cataractes, playing two and a half season for the club.  He scored a total of 43 points during his tenure with the team.

Alexis Gravel

I've said it many times but I'll say it again, I really like the fact that hockey players are so fan friendly.  Today's post is about Alexis Gravel, currently playing for the Halifax Mooseheads.  He had a pretty successful rookie season, splitting duties with Blade Mann-Dixon, who was nearing the end of his junior career. ...

Rafael Harvey-Pinard

Like many of the players in the junior hockey leagues, I haven't had much opportunity (or time!) to watch them play. I've been busy with other things going on in my life but with the help of Upper Deck, I should be able to keep a closer eye on things. Of course, I'll miss opportunities... Continue Reading →

Jaret Anderson-Dolan

A nice autograph from Jaret Anderson-Dolan of the Spokane Chiefs.  To be honest, I didn't know much about him before the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.  I read a lot about Jaret on hockey forums which seemed to indicate he would be a late 1st round pick. It's clear that Jaret has had a lot of... Continue Reading →

Tye Felhaber

I don't actually know much about Tye Felhaber but am excited to learn a little about him through the writing of this blog post. Obviously Tye had played for the 67s but was originally drafted by the Saginaw Spirit in the 1st round.  He went 10th overall in a 2014 OHL draft has already developed... Continue Reading →

Ty Lewis

Today's post brings us to Ty Lewis, currently a member of the Brandon Wheat Kings and prospect for the Colorado Avalanche.  It's expected that Ty will begin his pro career with the AHL, the Colorado Eagles starting in the 2018/19 season.  He most recently completed his junior career with the Wheat Kings, reaching the 100...

Jeremy McKenna

If you've been following along, I've been pretty successful with this new CHL set from Upper Deck and it was released at the end of the season! I fully expect many of the players in the checklist to continue on with their junior careers or proceed to the AHL. Jeremy McKenna is currently a forward... Continue Reading →

Cole Fonstad

I'm happy to be getting this card back from Cole Fonstad who was drafted in the 5th round of the 2018 Entry Draft. While it's generally accepted that the Montreal Canadiens whiffed on the 3rd selection (selecting Jesperi Kotkaniemi instead of expected Filip Zadina) based on scouting reports, Cole was expected to go anywhere between...

Maurizio Colella

Maurizio Colella is an assistant captain of the Flint Firebirds and had a good season with the team this past season. He led the team with 61 points on a team that didn't do so well this season as they finished 2nd last in the OHL. It's interesting to see that Maurizio has played for... Continue Reading →
