The Last of the Dominion Penguins Rookie Patch Autos - Brian Strait

I picked up the last of four Penguins rookies from the 2011-12 Dominion rookie patch autos. This one is serial-numbered 47/99, and features a three-colored patch at appears to come from either the jersey number or nameplate. This one, too, seems to actually match the jersey from the card photo, so bravo there.

Strait was drafted by the Penguins in 2006 (3rd round, 65th overall), but didn't make his NHL debut until February 21, 2011 against the Washington Capitals. He played in three games in 2010-11 with zero points. The next season, Strait played in 9 NHL games, scoring one assist. He spent most of his time with the Penguins' AHL affiliat in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, scoring 4 goals and 12 assists in 41 games.
