Yeah, yeah, yeah. More of these rookies from Dominion.
So what? They're GREAT looking cards, and the whole point of this blog is to brag and boast all about the cool stuff I add to me ever-expanding collection.
Sp, deal with THAT.
Anyway, here we go.
156 - Craig Smith 24/199
Smith was selected in the fourth round (98th overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. Of the non-Penguin rookies I have gotten so far, Smith has actually been the most productive. He was a full-time Predator for the 2011-12 season, playing in 72 games and tallying a total of 36 points (14 goals, 22 assists). He was the first Predators rookie since Colin Wilson (2009-10 season) to jump directly to the pro club before first playing for the team's AHL affiliate, the Washington Admirals.
(The odd thing about this swatch, is that it appears to be a screen-printed patch. The right-side yellow is the base fabric, but the three colors to the right of it are all printed on one piece of material. Maybe they gave him a "Premier" (aka replica) jersey, which all feature an embroidered crest on the front, but all names and numbers are screen-printed onto one piece of fabric and then sewn on. It is, after all, just "event worn.")
139 - Cam Atkinson 154/199
Atkinson was a late-round pick (6th round, 157th overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. He spent most of the 2011-12 season with the AHL's Springfield Falcons, but did get some good NHL time, scoring 7 goals and 7 assists in 27 games
That's all for now, but I'm sure there will be more on the way real soon.
