Justin Azevedo TTM Success

Justin Azevedo
c/o Manchester Monarchs
4 of 4 and actually signed my draft cards instead of keeping them like last time.

Justin was an exciting player to watch back when he was with the Kitchener Rangers of the OHL. His mantle must be covered with awards from his junior days as in his final year he looked unstoppable when it came to scoring. The major knock on Justin is his size, being listed at 5'8" is tough when you are trying to make the NHL. This is my second success with Justin and I have also met him during his Kitchener days.

Alex is an easy player to hate, but I'm pretty sure everyone wishes that he was on their favourite team. From being an excellent agitator to having a scoring touch. He is a very complete player and I'm happy to be able to add his autograph to my collection.

We Have a Trade to Announce

I was able to pick these up on a site that I belonged to. The trade was Jordan Staal, Ryan Smyth, and Alexander Semin for Patrik Elias, Ilya Kovalchuk, and David Clarkson. I was happy to add these to my collection as I had never seen a TTM success from Kovalchuk or Elias and I had duplicates of ever player that I traded away.

Mark Giordano TTM Autograph

Decided that it was time to start updating my website a little bit so I'll start out with the first success I got this year.

Mark is one of those solid defensemen whose fine play often goes unnoticed if you are not a fan of the Calgary Flames. Going undrafted in juniors he was able to earn himself a contract after 2 seasons with the Owen Sound Attack of the OHL. He had a career year last season putting up 43 points. Mark also shares the same birthday with myself being October 3rd.
