2018-19 Upper Deck Set

I was just online and saw the preview of the Upper Deck 2018-19 Series One set. If I wasn’t already pumped for the upcoming season I am now even more. Once again Upper Deck is producing another beautiful product to collect. Some new additions to the set include 25 under 25 highlighting the top 25 players under 25 yrs of age. One I am really excited for is the 50 card Goalie Insert set titled Stonewalled. Will you be pick up any boxes to open on release day when it hits the shelves on November 8 2018?Screen-Shot-2018-07-11-at-11.55.12-AMScreen-Shot-2018-07-11-at-11.55.15-AMScreen-Shot-2018-07-11-at-11.55.26-AMScreen-Shot-2018-07-11-at-11.55.07-AM

Why the NHL is the Best

Hello Everyone,

My love for the NHL just keeps growing. I have always been a fan but I was mostly a casual fan. Growing up in South Jersey I was only 20mins from Philadelphia so I am a Philadelphia Flyers fan. Now living in CT I still make it well known that I am still a Philly fan for the Flyers and all the Philly teams.

Recently my love for the NHL continues to grow and grow. I can’t stop watching hockey, reading about hockey and started to collect hockey cards. Recently I came across a video on Facebook of NHL players giving kids souvenirs at NHL games. The smiles on the kids faces are just priceless. Just by the players taking a few moments to do this for the fans makes their day, week or even year one to remember.

Its moments like the photo below with Jordan Tootoo when he was with the Detroit Red Wings that make me a huge NHL fan.

Introduction

Thank you for stopping by. I have been looking for a distraction to keep me occupied for the past year. I tried a few things but nothing really stuck with me. The reason for needing a distraction was that one of my daughters was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma last May. Osteosarcoma is a form of Bone Cancer. Throughout treatment she went through so much and as a parent you try to take your mind off of the daily stress of seeing your child go through that.  She is now Cancer free but still has appointments every few months for new scans.

I still struggle from time to time worrying if the Cancer will come back. By starting this Blog I feel that it will help me with distracting myself and to document / write about the NHL.  I will be the first to tell you that I’m not the best at writing so bare with me. I am also not a big expert on the NHL but my love for the sport is always growing.

Please let me know if you have any ideas on how I can improve my blog.

Thank you for stopping by
