Detroit Red Wings Hounding

Another successful trip inside HSBC Arena Saturday when the Red Wings came to town. Whenever I'm there it always seems like the teams best player comes out first. Like for Chicago it was Patrick Kane we got first and for Atlanta on Wednesday, it was Dustin Byfuglien. The streak continues because the first guy we got yesterday was captain and 2011 NHL All Star Nicklas Lidstrom. He was extremely nice and signed both my card and 8x10. Then the next guy who came out was another star player, Henrik Zetterberg. He also signed my 8x1 and a card. It was also cool to see Drew Miller, who is Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller's younger brother. For about 15 or 20 minutes they were just talking near us by the Red Wings locker room. When I asked Ryan about it he said they really don't get to see each other too often and it's gonna be real fun playing against him. I would have gotten something signed by Drew, but i didn't have anything for him to sign. After a few other guys, Pavel Datsyuk came out. I really should have printed out and 8x10 of him but i didn't have the time. But, he was the only player I had two cards of to sign. I got most of thees guys TTM so I didn't bring any cards of Mike Modano, Johan Franzen, Dan Cleary, Jimmy Howard, Chris Osgood and Brian Rafalski. Also signing cards for me were Todd Bertuzzi, Tomas Holmstrom, and Kris Draper.

  1. Great haul guy. Stock up on Team Canada or Team USA pucks, you'll always have extras for the surprises.

  2. Really like the autographed Lidstrom 8x10. Looks great!

  3. Yeah thanks! It's one of my favorite 8x10's I have. I'm sure he is gonna be a hall of famer!
