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...

Felix Bibeau

Drafted in the 2015 QMJHL Entry Draft, Felix Bibeau has lived up well to his draft position.  I do find that with junior hockey, it's always hard to predict where players may end up at the end of their careers but in this case, Felix is spot on.  He was selected 27th overall but currently...

Matthew Struthers

The tough part about getting these CHL Upper Deck hockey cards signed is the fact that many of these players.. I haven't had a chance to watch!  I'll have to figure out a way to at least catch highlights of these players, like Matthew Struthers, so I'll know who some of them are by the... Continue Reading →

Nicholas Porco

As you may have noticed, there are a ton of CHL players that I'll be featuring - this time it's Nicholas Porco.  It's great that the young players in hockey are willing to sign for fans, especially when they stretch all over the continent.  In fact, all over the world, players are willing to sign,...

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 →

Johnny Boychuk

Johnny Boychuk was one of the biggest hitters in the game when he was with the Bruins.  I just watched some of his highlights and boy, can this guy hit, shoot and score!  Although he hasn't reached the 10 goal mark in any of his NHL seasons, some of the bombs he launched were amazing....

Nic Dowd

Nic Dowd has had a bit of a tough time finding a position with a team since he left the LA Kings.  During his AHL seasons, he was productive netting close to 90 points over two seasons.  His best season in the NHL had come during the 2016/17 season where he potted 22 points.  Since...

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...

Tyler Bozak

Tyler Bozak, currently a member of the St.Louis Blues as of this season, came into the NHL as an undrafted player.  For many years, the Toronto Maple Leafs had Tyler on their roster, spanning 8 full NHL seasons.  He's averaged about .61 points per game, which over a course of an 82 game season is...

Akil Thomas

Akil Thomas is an NHL draftee, as he was selected in the 2nd round to the LA Kings.  He was drafted recently as it appears on scouting reports right about where he was slated to go, in the late first or 2nd rounds.  A lot of the reports that I've read on Akil is that... Continue Reading →

Olaf Kolzig

Olaf Kolzig will go down as one of the best goaltenders to have donned the Washington Capitals jersey.  In fact, that's not all Olaf will go down for as he was the very first goalie to have scored a goal in a WHL game during a 1989 game versus the Seattle Thunderbirds.  This feat has been...
