Selected by Oakland Seals round 1 #7 overall 1969 NHL Amateur Draft
Right winger Tony Featherstone played two years of junior hockey with the Peterborough Petes then turned pro with the Providence Reds of the American Hockey League in 1969-70. He found himself in the National Hockey League during his rookie pro campaign.
Featherstone played nine games for the Oakland Seals that year registering one assist. The next year he cracked the NHL roster permanently, playing 67 contests with the re-named California Golden Seals scoring eight goals and eight assists.
On October 6th, 1971, California traded Featherstone to the Montreal Canadiens for Ray Matyniuk. Featherstone was unable to crack the talented Canadiens roster and spent the next two seasons with Montreal's farm club in Nova Scotia.
In May 1973, the Canadiens dealt Featherstone to the Minnesota North Stars, and that proved to his ticket back to the NHL. In 1973-74, he played 54 games for the North Stars and posted career high numbers with 9 goals and 21 points. Despite his putting up his best numbers, it proved to be the last year in the NHL. He signed with the Toronto Toros of the World Hockey Association for the last two seasons of his hockey career.

This months total is 25/31. This is fairly consistent with the previous months. Maybe I should try to get autographed cards for that days where I don't have any for that birthday.
August, here we come.
