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...

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,...

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... Continue Reading →

Calvin Pickard

At the age of 26, Calvin Pickard has yet to make an impact on the Toronto Maple Leafs' starting goaltender debate.  While he's only played for two teams (and been a member of three, technically) and drafted in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft you gotta wonder when he gets a shot at the top spot. ... Continue Reading →

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... Continue Reading →

Andrei Svechnikov

Andrei Svechnikov is a former Barrie Colt and current Carolina Hurricanes prospect.  He was hyped (obviously not as much as Rasmus Dahlin) and was promptly selected 2nd overall in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft.  At the time of this writing, it appears as if Andrei has performed well in the couple of games he's participated... Continue Reading →

Trevor Linden

Trevor Linden is one of the most iconic players of the Vancouver Canucks.  Of course, the argument for the Sedins and Pavel Bure can be made as well. Trevor got his start in the NHL by being drafted into the league in 1998 by the Vancouver Canucks and played a total of 10 years during... Continue Reading →
