Got this foil card signed through the mail by Thomas Greiss, currently a member of the NY Islanders organization.
Hailing from Fussen, West Germany, Thomas has represented Germany on countless occasions during International tournaments in his 15 years of pro hockey. He started off in 2003 in the U18 WJC although has failed to help Germany win a medal.
As for Thomas’ NHL career, he’s made his living as being a backup goaltender, aside from the 2016/17 season where he played in 51 games for the NY Islanders.
At this point, Thomas may end up as the third best German goaltender for many decades. I don’t think there is any argument that Olaf Kolzig is the best German goalie of all time and with Phillip Grubauer climbing the ranks.
