eBay: Hannu Toivonen

Drafted by Boston Bruins 1st round (29th overall) 2002 NHL Entry Draft

Another ebay pickup for my between the pipes autographed set.

After being drafted high by Boston in 2002 and then being sent to St. Louis I though he was going to have some high potential and have a solid career but that did not last to long as he finished his NHL/AHL career with the Rockford Icehogs at the end of the 2010-11 season. He is still playing now but he has been sent around the european leagues the past 2 seasons.

For me though he will always be known as having the vintage mask paint job with the ears and hair, a style that Steve Shields first had.
