|2015-16 Upper Deck #34 Elias Lindholm|
Lindholm scored his first career hat trick on March 8, 2015 against the Oilers. This card commemorates that achievement.
|2015-16 Upper Deck #57 Ales Hemsky|
This is a great shot of Hemsky rejoicing while taking a seat on the ice. I'm guessing either he or someone he assisted scored.
|2015-16 Upper Deck #83 Jake Muzzin|
This photo is amazing! Muzzin's jump perfectly frames the word Alberta on the board.You don't often think of hockey players getting that vertical during a game.
|2015-16 Upper Deck #188 John Carlson|
The leaning effect in this card makes this one stand out. It's like both players are just a breath away from toppling over.
|2012-13 Score #311 Henrik Lundqvist|
A great action shot of one the all time great goalies. The card design is nice and simple too.
|2008-09 Fleer Ultra - Scoring Kings #SK6 Jaromir Jagr|
Another all-time great, what makes this card really stand out is the paragraph on the back:
"In what likely was Jagr's final season in the NHL..." For anyone who doesn't follow hockey, Jagr played this past season for the Calgary Flames. Although Jagr didn't play for a few seasons after the 2007-08 season, he eventually made his way back to the NHL and played for a long time afterward. Fleer (and pretty much everyone else) underestimated his career by a full decade! I get the feeling Jagr will still be lacing up his skates for some Czech team well into his 60s!
As always, a big thank you to Billy for all the great cards!
