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 →

Chris Tanev

Chris Tanev is one of the most underrated defensemen in the NHL.  He's currently the veteran defenseman on the team at the age of 28.  While the Canucks not expected to make the playoffs this year, he and Alex Edler are doing their best to make that happen. Prior to the start of Chris' career,... Continue Reading →

Sven Baertschi

Sven Baertschi has been a pleasant surprise for many Canucks fans.  He was casted away from the Calgary Flames for a 2015 2nd round draft pick (Rasmus Andersson) in a trade that drew mixed reviews.  Of course, the debate of whether Vancouver should have kept the second round pick and pick Rasmus themselves will still...

Riley Nash

Finally, back to a current NHL'er!  Riley Nash currently is a member of the Columbus Blue Jackets and has had a decent career being a depth forward.  Originally drafted by the Oilers, a team which he didn't' play a single game for, was probably a good thing.  Not that I dislike the Oilers but like...

Zach Werenski

I'll have to say that the autograph from Zach Werenski isn't exactly my favorite in the world.  I'll also say it isn't the worst I've seen either. Zach is currently a defenseman for the Columbus Blue Jackets and was drafted into the league during the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.  He was selected 8th overall in... Continue Reading →

Cam Atikinson

Cam Atikinson is currently a member of the Columbus Blue Jackets and likely wants to stay there the rest of his NHL career.  He was originally drafted by the team in 2008, going 157th overall.  That draft was excellent as they produced talents like Erik Karlsson, Steven Stamkos and Drew Doughty.  Obviously, Cam wasn't very...

Claude Lemieux

Claude Lemieux is one of the dirtiest players the NHL has seen and I actually say that in a good way.  Maybe I actually meant he played with an edge which at times, he crossed.  Needless to say, Claude was very good at what he did.  He won the Stanley Cup four times with three...

Drake Caggiula

Drake Caggiula came into the NHL with a ton of hype.  His role in the NCAA Frozen Four tournament where he potted a handful of points in the championship game and was named Most Outstanding Player of the tournament.  Overall for the season, he scored 51 points in 39 games. Coming into the NHL, there... Continue Reading →

Derrick Pouliot

Derrick Pouliot of the Vancouver Canucks has definitely not lived up to his #8 overall draft pick in 2012.  On the defensive side for the Canucks, they only recently picked up a stud defenseman in Quinn Hughes who appears to be that elite defender they've been after.  As of today, the top 5 include Alex...
