King Richard Brodeur signed these two cards for me in a blue sharpie at a hockey event I attended.  Extremely kind man and always seems to be friendly to all that approach him.  He's a short man, on current NHL standards, standing at 5'7".  He started his pro career by being drafted by the New York Islanders, but was traded to the Vancouver Canucks in the early 80s.  Richard played in 8 Canuck seasons, racking up 126 wins in the process.  Surely a far cry from HHOF goaltender Martin Brodeur!
