Quinton Howden was a prospect for the Florida Panthers, having been drafted in the 1st round, 25th overall in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. Eight years later, he's now playing for Dinamo Minsk of the KHL. It's obviously not uncommon for a highly touted draft pick to toil in other leagues but I'm still holding... Continue Reading →
I think it's a well known fact that Vancouver and Florida are fantastic trading partners. They received Jacob Markstrom in a trade that involved long time goalie, Roberto Luongo.

Yay! A Roberto Luongo autograph! He signed this card, and another card my dad got (of course, with the "signature" blue mark on it). Not much of a signature, but he did sign for many of us looking for autographs. I'm so happy that I did get his autograph, as I know he's been really... Continue Reading →
Jay Bouwmeester signed my card, although I think the pen I used wasn't worn down enough. I'll have to try and wear down the sharpie before I get the players to sign again in the future. It was neat to see all them though!
