Since that last time I got his autograph, tons has happened in Boone’s career. He’s become the alternate captain, played five full season in the NHL and helped Team Canada win gold in 2016 at the IIHF World Championships. In fact, he recently re-signed with the club for another four years, showing the confidence that the Columbus organization have in him, paying him $3.75 million dollars a season. It’ll be interesting to see how the Blue Jackets perform as they […]
Natalie Spooner played for a number of teams in her playing career, starting out with the Ohio State Buckeyes for four seasons starting in 2008. She holds many of the team’s records including careers goals scored. Once her college career finished, she moved on to play in the CWHL, getting drafted by her hometown Toronto Furies in the 2nd round. That 2012 CWHL draft included top names such as Rebecca Johnston, Haley Irwin and Hilary Knight. It’s impressive to continually […]
Standing at 5’9, you could probably say that Tyler Ennis is one of the smaller players in the league, using his speed and quickness to elude players. He has a high IQ and definitely utilizes it to his advantage when playing against players larger than him. Tyler had been a long time member of the Buffalo Sabres until recently he was traded to the Minnesota Wild to be reunited with his best friend, Jared Spurgeon. Looking at his stats this […]
I love the grainy photo that Upper Deck used for this card, it really has an old time feeling when I look at it. I’m so grateful that Mike Gartner signed it in a blue sharpie. As you probably guessed, I didn’t have to do a thing to prep this card. Mike signed this card in a fantastic blue sharpie and really pops out against this Team Canada jersey. Like most of the players I send to, Mike is part […]
Without having done much research on Callum Booth, all I can tell you about him is that he’s a young goaltender drafted in the 4th round by the Carolina Hurricanes in 2015. While he hasn’t had any NHL experience up to this date, he’s still making headway as he was awarded with a new contract, three years as of 2017. Ron Francis, the GM of the team, announced the following on Callums’ development – stating that Callum “has continued to […]
Alex Formenton, an NHL prospect for the Ottawa Senators currently playing for the London Knights in the OHL. I sent to Alex pretty recently (early Jan) and got it back within 60 days. As many Canadians know, Alex scored the final goal (EN) of the most recent World Juniors Tournament. While I’m not a card collector per-se, I’m guessing that this card will likely go up in value (as it’s his rookie card) although I’m actually not sure how much […]
Dan Hamhuis is a stud on defense for the Canucks! He has been one of the better acquisitions for the Canucks from this past off-season and is playing regularly against the opponents’ top players. A great BC boy and a fantastic IP and TTM’er. Finally, a different card he signed! Thanks Dan!
Yay! My 100th autograph! I had sent Kim St. Pierre another Canadian Heroes hockey card, and she had sent me back that card, along with an additional photo of herself both signed. She’s an exceptional goalie who plays for Team Canada as well as McGill and Montreal Stars. She is the first woman in CIS history to have won a men’s regular season game. She’s also the second woman goaltender to have played along side NHL players, as Carey Price […]
