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...

Craig Conroy

I'm a big fan of what Craig Conroy has done for the Calgary Flames.  Like Jarome Iginla, Craig has done so much for the city of Calgary by really being embedded into the community.  He's gone from player to management (at both the AHL and NHL stages!). Craig started his career by being drafted by... Continue Reading →

Matt Cullen

Matt Cullen has been around for ages! Born in 1976, Matt is still playing hockey in the NHL at the young age of 41.  Before this season, Jaromir Jagr was crowned the oldest player in the league currently but since he has left, the trophy now belongs to Matt.  For the record, Gordie Howe owns...

Blake Wheeler

I'm pretty excited to get Blake Wheeler, the captain of the Winnipeg Jets.  He is an outstanding captain and has led the Jets to the playoffs last year.  Unfortunately for the team, they were knocked out in the Conference Finals, I wouldn't be surprised if they make it to the Stanley Cup Finals soon.  They've... Continue Reading →

Nikolaj Ehlers

I was pretty excited to get this Upper Deck "Star Rookies" card signed by Nikolaj Ehlers of the Winnipeg Jets. Nikolaj has become a nice addition to an already fantastic top 6 in Winnipeg and I strongly believe that Winnipeg will win a cup within the next decade, given the talent that they've accumulated through... Continue Reading →

Andy Moog

This is a really neat card to get signed by Andy Moog, three time NHL Stanley Cup champion.  Although the backup position is an important position when the starting goalie gets injured, Moog disagrees.  He won those three cups with Grant Fuhr leading the way.  While I never had a great chance to take in...
