TTM: Kyle Beach

Sent: 4/13/13

Received: 6/3/13

Drafted by Chicago Blackhawks 1st round  (#11 overall) in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft

To me Beach has become a bust since he was drafted at a high pick, now if he was late 3rd round or later I would of given him a small chance. Though one of the reasons he has not been called up is because he plays a rough enforcer style of play and is not very good offensively. To give a good example of Beach's Style, He plays like Carcillo, Mayers, and Bollig who are are NHL tough enforcers yet are all being scratched in the playoffs this season since they don't produce offensively and Enforcers don't really play in any playoff games. 

This Autograph helps out my 2011-12 Rockford IceHogs Team set and I lOVE that Beach used Gold Pen for the signature.

TTM: Jake Allen

Sent: 10/18/12

Received: 6/1/13

This is a semi-big return from what looks to be a future NHL star. Allen only played a few games in St.  Louis this season when either Halak or Brian Elliot were injured otherwise he was stuck in Peoria. Next season he will be probably be joining the Chicago Wolves with the AHL move and having 2 starting caliber goalies in St. Louis does not help Allen at having a solid starting job in the NHL, Though I am looking forward to seeing more play of him someday.

TTM: Jussi Rynnas

Sent: 4/13/13

Received: 5/31/13

Signed as a Free Agent by Toronto in 2010

Currently Rynnas is the starter for the Marlies after Ben Scrivens was called up to the Maple Leafs to backup James Reimer. I think in a couple years he will have a good shot at being a solid NHL goaltender.

These cards were sent to the Marlies before the AHL playoffs started and they were nicely signed in Blue Sharpie.
