Jake Gardiner is a native of the great state of Minnesota. Jake was drafted 17th overall in the 2008 draft by the Duck organization. The young blue-liner played in 75 games last season (his first full NHL season) and lit the lamp 7 times along with 23 helpers for a total of 30 points. Gardiner is one of the top young d-men in the Leafs organization and is establishing himself in the league as a scoring threat (check out vid for the evidence). Jake signed the Score rookie card along with inscribing his number 51. This was a great rookie return.
Matt Dumba was picked 7th overall in the 2012 draft by the Minnesota Wild organization. Dumba is a member of the WHL's Red Deer Rebels. Dumba is a strong physical Blue Liner, that not only players good D- but can also create off his own stick and put the puck in the net. Dumba was a solid pick at 7th for the Wild and has to potential to be a franchise D-Man down the road. Great return from a big prospect.
PK Subban is one of the premiere young Blue-Liners in the NHL today. Subban is the total package from the point he has a huge shot and his hitting ability is among the top in the NHL. PK is also willing to drop the mitts for his team when needed. This has to be one the Top Returns I have ever received and is the top of this TTM season no doubt. PK signed all three of my cards and inscribed them according to the jersey number on the card . PKsigned these cards through the TSN sports station, where he was a sports news anchor. I am very lucky to get these back based on he will be no longer with TSN since the NHL lockout was lifted and players are starting to report back to there respected NHL teams. GREAT return!
Nick Schultz was drafted 33rd overall in the 2000 daft by the Minnesota Wild organization sound blue line play night in and night out. Nick was delt to the Oilers at the trade deadline for Minnesota born D-Man Tom Gilbert. Nick signed 3 of 4 cards I sent and kept one as I offerend (kept the Oilers OPC refractor , I was hoping he would take on the three score cards. lol oh well.). This is a great return from one of my favorite players to ever wear the Wild sweater.
