Lookie at some rookies

Rookie cards can be a collection unto themselves. I personally don't go out of my way to collect them, but obviously they are part of my team collections if nothing else. Also, they have become more and more, a part of specific base sets with some having sections of the checklist being specifically rookie cards.


A number of Victory set rookie hockey cards coming up today - so let's take a look at their success in the NHL.

Hanzal - 287 points in just over 550 games, all with the Coyotes (solid)
Doell - 8 games for the Thrashers - that's it - only one point (NHL bust)
D'agostini - 107 points in 324 games played across 5 teams (NHLer)
Valabik - 7 points in 80 games for the Thrashers

Overall as a group probably better than average as there can be many a player profiled who only plays a handful of NHL games and goes nowhere in the NHL, then back to the minors.

The rest

Nice seeing more from these sets as there hasn't been too much to date from them out of the Lot.


I like the pre-throw down pose on the Ronald Murray card.
