April 20

Gilles Lupien

A towering 6'6" defenceman, Gilles Lupien played over 200 NHL games with three different clubs (Montreal, Pittsburgh and Hartford). He was taken 33rd overall by the Montreal Canadiens in the 1974 Amateur Draft and was a member of the 1978 and 1979 Stanley Cup teams. After leaving the game, Lupien became a player agent and one of his first high profile clients was goalie Felix Potvin.
Gilles Lupien is the agent for Drummondville Voltigeurs star Sean Couturier (who is seen a top 3 or top 5 pick in June), Corey Crawford of the Blackhawks and the Canucks Roberto Luongo.

Received this TTM signed in blue ink. Notice the card says Penguins but clearly still in a Canadiens sweater. You will also notice the OPC version did not have the players name in the puck blacked out so you had to scratch it off to reveal players name, unlike the Topps version. This was his only card issued.
