A Fighter

 Another day, another nice 2001-02 Upper Deck Victory Gold parallel card to talk about!

Jason Krog is a fighter - I don't mean in the sense of how he plays, but his fight in his career to strive to play at the most elite level. His first games in the NHL were in 1999-00 after 6 years between BCJHL and the U. of New Hampshire, while also then playing for a couple different teams in the AHL in 1999-00. He popped back and forth between the AHL and NHL in 2000-01 through 2002-03, after which, the lockout pushed him to Europe, though he returned in 2006-07 and again in 2008-09.

Though his NHL career lasted 202 games over parts of 7 seasons with 5 teams, Jason fought for all his time and earned it. He finished his career with 5 seasons in Europe/Russia last playing in 2015-16.

Some great base cards including Messier, Rinning and Forsberg - and Samsonov who seemed to be everywhere hockey card in the 00s.

We end with a single dupe. I can live with a single dupe per pack...hope that's all we stay at.

23 Packs, 230 Cards, 799 Points.
