Jordan Schroeder

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...

Mark Scheifele

Mark Scheifele is the assistant captain for the Winnipeg Jets and one of the core pieces of the team.  It'll be hard to imagine Mark being apart of any other team now that the Jets are doing so well in the NHL.  He was drafted into the NHL in 2011, seventh overall, in a time... Continue Reading →

Russ Courtnall

It's been a while since I've featured a retired player considering most of my mail outs are for CHL players or at least current NHL players.  Luckily, I've watched Russ play for the Vancouver Canucks in 1995 / 96 where he scored 65 points for the team.  That team featured Canucks such as Alexander Mogilney,...

Jake Muzzin

Let's all agree that CHL is great but finally I'm able to write about an active NHL player!  Formerly a member of the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, Jake Muzzin has made a name for himself in the NHL.  He played for the Soo between 2006 - 2010, where he was named as the team captain... Continue Reading →

Quinton Howden

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...

Torey Krug

Torey Krug was an undrafted prospect as he entered into his rookie season with the Boston Bruins.  He signed an entry level contract by current Oilers GM, Peter Chiarelli on March 25, 2012.  I'd say this was an outstanding signing by Peter as Torey has been consistent with his play ever since he's remained with...

Al MacInnis

Al MacInnis is currently a member of the St.Louis Blues, a team in which he played for during his Hall of Fame career.  He had one of the hardest slapshots during his time in the NHL, clocking in at over 100 mph.  The hardest shot competition, usually played at the All-Star game, was won by...

Jonathan Toews

Jonathan Toews really doesn't need any introduction.  He's the famed Chicago Blackhawks captain that has won at literally every stage he's played in.  Olympic Gold medals, multiple Stanley Cups and World Juniors dominance.  He'll likely go down as one of the greatest players to have played the game. Of course, this season has been less... Continue Reading →

Tomas Tatar

Hailing from Ilava, Czechoslovakia, Tomas Tatar was a good pick up for the Detroit Red Wings.  He represented the team for almost 5 full NHL season where he was able to achieve a career high in points during the 2014/15 season.  The two seasons after hitting 56 points, Tomas had just under 50 points both...

Matt Hendricks

Matt Hendricks was never really known for his scoring powers but more for letting his fists do the talking.  To date, he's had a total of 87 career NHL fights which also include the preseason according to  His career peak in fights in a season was when he was suiting up for the Nashville...

Willie Mitchell

Willie Mitchell has to be one of my favourite hockey players to have suited up for the Vancouver Canucks.  While he's long gone from the game, I'll always remember how he just seemed to scream leadership whenever he took the ice.  He was cool, calm and collected when defending the other teams' top players.  Of...

Jacob Markstrom

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.  In fact, current teammate Erik Gudbranson also arrived into the Vancouver organization through the trade of NHL prospect, Jared McCaan. If I recall, Jacob was actually... Continue Reading →
