Theoren Fleury

Theoren Fleury (5-4)
RECEIVED: 6-7-12
ADDY: C/O home

Theo Fleury was taken 166th overall in the 1987 draft by the Flames.  Theo was a 7 time All-Star game particpant during his career with 1088 points and a career +145 in 1084 games played at the NHL level.  Fleury to add to his huge list of accomplishments Won a Stanley Cup with the Flames in 89' and won a Gold Medal with Canada in 2002.  Theo all 5'6" of him might have been one of the purest scorers in the game while he played, and would have done more without some of the deamons he battled throughout his career.  I read Theo's book "Playing With Fire" and I would highly recommend it to anyone even if you are not a hockey fan.  It is a great read and a great story of what he overcame in his life.  Theo signed all four of my cards along with answering my letter (read below).  This is a great return from one of the best!  Thank you Mr. Fleury.

Evander Kane

Evander Kane (1-1)

Drafted 4th overall by the Atlanta Thrashers in 2009, Evander Kane has been on the best young scorers in the league since his first season 09-10.  Kane had his best scoring season yet with 30 goals and 27 helpers on the season.  Kane is very young and athletic winger and I would think that his numbers will only get better as he matures.  The Jets right now are working out a big deal for Kane, seems like the smart thing to do even though Jets fan's have been trying to run him out of town on some stories of skipping out of his bill at local restaurants.  Pretty Sure that the Jets will get a deal done with Kane soon. He is way to valuable for the Jets not to lock him up long term.

Teemu Selanne (3-3)
ADDY: C/O home

Teemu was drafted 10th overall in 1988 by the Winnipeg Jets.  Teemu has recently announced he will play one more year with the Ducks.  Mr. Selanne has done everything and won just about everything on every stage in hockey "Just About".  The future Hall of Famer is still a feared scorer at the age of 42.  Teemu is always fun to watch and I really hope he goes out in the way he deserves, he will go down as one of the best.  Teemu Signed all three photos for me and inscribed his number on all of them.  Thank you for your time Mr. Selanne.

RECEIVED: 6-27-12

Magnus Pääjärvi was drafted 10th overall in the 2009 Draft by the Edmonton Oilers.  Magnus scored 34 points during his freshmen campaign with the Oilers.  In 2011 after a very slow start Magnus was sent down to the AHL club.  Magnus is a very young and talented winger and I do not see him spending to much time in the AHL from here on out.
