A quick 18 day turn around from Ben Scrivens, one half of the goaltending tandem in Toronto. He, alongside James Reimer will need to carry the workload until a deal gets done (perhaps with Roberto?). I'm super happy that he signed this card as this is my very first return from him. Thanks a lot Ben!

A fantastic return from Alexander Semin, formerly from the Washington Capitals, now with the Carolina Hurricanes. He will be there to add more offense to the lineup (and obviously of a more physical presence as well =P). I'm thankful for this auto from Alex, as it's my first time I've gotten his signature. Thanks Alex!

A great autograph from captain and former Stanley Cup winner Andrew Ladd. Andrew was originally drafted in 2004, by the Carolina Hurricanes, 4th overall. Andrew has certainly grown to become the leader he is today by being a part of winning organizations like Carolina and Chicago. Thanks for the fantastic autograph Andrew

I got this neat Heros and Prospects autograph from Damon Severson of the Kelowna Rockets. This return came at probably one of the fastest I've ever received, 5 days! Damon is a well rounded defenseman, and was drafted by the New Jersey Devils in the 2nd round. I'm hoping that he'll pan out similar to fellow Rockets alumni, Shea Weber.

A young, young picture of Richard Park. Richard currently a member on a Swiss team in Europe. Richard has been around the block many times, having played for Vancouver, Pittsburgh, Anaheim, Philadelphia, Minnesota and New York (Islanders). He graciously signed this rookie card of his while he was on the Penguins. Thanks for the auto Richard!

A little slow on the updates, but I received James Wright, shown here with the Tampa Bay Lightning back in 2011. James was a Tampa Bay draft pick in the 2008 entry draft, selected 117th overall. Since then, he has been traded to the Florida Panthers and toiled in the AHL with the Norfolk Admirals and San Antonio Rampage. Best of luck James!
