ADDY: C/O u of L

Stanley Cup Champ Kris Versteeg currently of the Florida Panthers organization is doing a little coaching during the lock out. Kris signed both of my score 11-12 cards in a quick 27 days. Versteeg the one time All-Star game participant was drafted 134th overall.  I have to say this is one of my top returns of the 12-13 ttm season.

Magnus Paajarvi

Magnus Paajarvi (3-3)
RECEIVED: 12-3-12

Magnus Svensson-Paajarvi was drafted 10th overall in the 2009 draft.  The speedy winger is known for he scoring ability and his top notch speed.  Magnus had a very good freshmen season in 10'-11' for the Oil,  but was hit with a little bit of a Sophomore slump last season and got off to a slow start and ended up finishing up in the AHL.  The Sophomore slump has happen to alot of good rookies in the past which always end up having a good third season in the NHL (great example Micheal Del Zotto).  I really think Magnus along with the elite talent the Oil have will be in the NHL asap and back to scoring goals and putting up better numbers than his Rookie season.  The Oilers have no accuses for the next couple years for under producing.  Magnus signed all three 11'-12' scores for the set for me along with inscribing his number 91 on all of them also.  This is a great return.

RECEIVED: 11-26-12
ADDY: C/O IceCaps

Carl Klingberg was drafted 34th overall in the 2009 draft.  The big body winger is currently with the Jets organization.  Carl is a Top prospect winger for Winnipeg.  The Super Swede was thought to make the NHL roster this season out of training camp, but Betman and the great things he does for the NHL put that on the side burner for Klingberg.  Carl signed both of my cards with inscribing his number.  This was a great return and another card checked off for the 11-12 score set.

James van Riemsdyk

James van Riemsdyk (4-4)
RECEIVED: 11-26-12
ADDY: C/O Home

James van Riemsdyk was drafted 2nd overall in the 2007 amateur draft  by the Flyers.  The USA born winger has spent 3 season's at the NHL.  JVR was involved in a big draft day trade which sent him packing to the Leafs. James numbers have been improving every year, even with his injury this year keeping him to only 48 games he still had 11 goals and 14 helpers.  van Riemsdyk is still very young and learning how to play with his 6'4" frame.  People got a look this playoffs of what his is able to do when he combines his offensive ability along with his size and strength.   James is going to have many good years to come in the NHL and I really think the Leafs made a good move bringing in the young talent.  Todays video is a welcome to Toronto JVR video, enjoy!   James signed all 4 items along with a Leafs jersey crest in silver.  JVR has a very simple signature ether you like it or hate it, but it is very distinctive and clean.

Oliver Ekman-Larsson

Oliver Ekman-Larsson (3-3)
RECEIVED: 12-1-12
ADDY: C/O AHL Pirates

Oliver Ekman-Larsson was drafted 6th overall in the 2009 draft by the Yotes.  This Super Swede had his first whole season at the NHL level last year scoring 32 points on 13 goals and 19 helpers.  OEL also chipped in 4 points during the Yotes historic run last year to the Western Conference Finals and to a loaded Pacific Conference Title.  Oliver is one of the top young Defensemen in the NHL today.  OEL has the tools to become a top pairing D-Man and an NHL All-Star in the near future.  This is a solid return from one the up and coming Blue-Liners in the game today! OEL signed and inscribed all three cards (one got a lil smudge on it), this is a high quality TTM return and one of my favorites of the 2012-13 Hockey TTM-ing season.
