Jake Virtanen

Another autograph from 6th overall pick in the 2014 draft, Jake Virtanen. I've been really impressed this year with Jake's level of play and find that he's really coming into his own. This year, Jake has taken his game to another level as it is clear he has significantly improved his conditioning, which in turn... Continue Reading →

Troy Stecher

I was so happy to finally get a Troy Stecher card signed.  He's one of the newer Canucks and had gone through the college route that so many hockey players seem to go through these days.  As an undrafted prospect, the Canucks likely caught sight of Troy after watching Brock Boeser who was on the...

Brock Boeser

The Vancouver Canucks drafted a great, young player in Brock Boeser during the 2015 NHL draft.  Brock is known for his shooting abilities, more specifically the quickness of his shot. After being drafted into the NHL, he opted to continue his college career with the UND (University of North Dakota) where he amassed 94 points... Continue Reading →

Henrik Sedin

Thanks to Kevin for the Flickr idea for posts!  It'll take some time to get used to, but I'm glad I'm back up and running.  So for today's blog, we have Henrik Sedin, obviously the Canucks captain.  I had received Henrik's autograph at a signing he did for EA Sports for the midnight launch of...

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins

The final installment of my hounding session with the Edmonton Oilers.  I was so happy to have gotten Burnaby, BC native Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, and is probably one of the harder players to get through TTM (I don't know if he'll sign TTM, but I've sent out a few and haven't received any returns as of...

Taylor Hall

Another fantastic success from the 2010, 1st overall draft pick, Taylor Hall!  I was super stoked to have seen that he was willing to sign for the fans that were waiting for him.  It isn't every day that you get to meet and take pictures with one of the brightest prospects in the NHL. I... Continue Reading →

Jordan Eberle

A triple dose of Jordan Eberle!  I managed to snag Jordan for a few autographs (with the help of my girlfriend) on two separate occasions during the OKC Barons' stay in Abbotsford.  Jordan obviously doesn't need any type of introduction, as he is one of the most (in my opinion at least) exciting players on...

Magnus Paajarvi

Next auto I managed to snag this trip was from Magnus Paajarvi.  He was drafted 10th overall by the Edmonton Oilers, but obviously with the lockout, he's currently playing for the Oklahoma City Barons.  He's been putting up, probably less than stellar point, but seems to be on the right track to success.  He'll definitely... Continue Reading →

Colten Teubert

Yes! A nice jersey card signed in silver sharpie by tough guy Colten Teubert.  Meeting Colton in person, he seems like a fairly nice guy, but had a few words for the hounders that were looking for 5+ autographs of the same picture of him.  I also saw him on the ice later that evening... Continue Reading →

Teemu Hartikainen

Part 1 of my hounding session of the OKC Barons this past weekend.  I got Teemu Hartikainen of the Barons, whom was drafted in 2008, 163rd overall.  He is a Finnish player, currently working his way up to the NHL level.  Teemu had only played under 20 games per season in the NHL thus far. ...

Richard Brodeur

King Richard Brodeur signed these two cards for me in a blue sharpie at a hockey event I attended.  Extremely kind man and always seems to be friendly to all that approach him.  He's a short man, on current NHL standards, standing at 5'7".  He started his pro career by being drafted by the New...

Kirk Mclean

Captain Kirk Mclean was one of my favorite hockey players in the early 90s.  He led the Canucks to the Stanley Cup finals vs the NY Rangers in '94 and was integral to their success.  A good goalie, he played for about half a dozen teams, before finally retiring, as a NY Ranger.  Funny how...
