Found May 22, 2012 on Plaschke, Thy Sweater Is Argyle:
Devante Smith-Pelly is one of my favorite Ducks, and a nice young player to put around the excellent core the team has built. He's BIG, hits, skates pretty well, and has a nice shot combined with the ability and willingness to go to the front of the net. He can also contribute to both the power play and penalty kill units.I was fortunate to snag this snazzy and zazzy on-card auto of the soon-to-be twenty-year-old winger. The blue auto works fantastically well with the blue border, and a great action shot of Devo is icing on the cake. The card features one mistake on Panini's part, as they list Smith-Pelly as a left-handed shooter, when he actually shoots right-handed. For four clams and some pocket change via eBay, it was an easy plunge to take.

Boudreau Extended; Fasth Signed

While the playoffs have been going on, the Ducks have doing a few things other than watching teams that are not themselves playing hockey.  The Ducks signed head coach Bruce Boudreau to a two-year contract extension through the 2014-15 NHL season. Boudreau was originally under contract with Anaheim through 2012-13. “Since joining the organization last November, Bruce has done...

Another Potentially Important Signing

I am always on the lookout for players who are signed who might make a significant impact in the NHL.  I pointed out the Roman Cervenka signing by Calgary.  There is another one that I think could make a big impact.  The Anaheim Ducks have signed Viktor Fasth who was the Swedish goaltender in the World Championships.  He is a 29 year old goalie who signed a 1 year $1 million...

Oh Captain, My Captain.

This post marks my first scanning since breaking my wrist. Not bad, I suppose. Anyways, I was really pleased to see Ryan Getzlaf's inclusion in the ITG Captain C set released earlier this year. I absolutely love picking up a hit that features Getz with the C on his sweater. I was able to snag the below beauty for $5.99 shipped as the sole bidder.The Silver Jersey variation has...
