Dennis Hull

A fine player in his own right, Dennis was always overshadowed by his older brother Bobby, and years later by his nephew Brett. But since his playing days Dennis has carved out a tremendous career as a celebrity spokesman. With his families natural charism and humour and his large collection of stories to tell, Dennis has become quite the entertainer.

John van Boxmeer

Selected by Montreal Canadiens round 1 #14 overall 1972 NHL Amateur Draft.

In 1972 a young Montreal Canadiens prospect, John Van Boxmeer, received a call from his lawyer and agent, Alan Eagleson. Eagleson told him that Team Canada, then in training for their now famous 1972 series with the Russians, needed a junior defenseman after Jacques Laperriere withdrew from the team. Van Boxmeer jumped at the chance to train with players like Esposito, Mahovlick and Cournoyer. He didn't play in the series but he did get exposed to the best players of that era and what it took to play with them.

Lindsay Carson

Selected by Philadelphia Flyers round 3 #56 overall 1979 NHL Entry Draft.
Carson was a good skater and a pop-gun scorer buried on the third and fourth line of the Flyers in the 1980s. In junior he was a scoring star, but not so much in the NHL. He scored 66 goals in his 373 game career, including seasons of 18 and 20 goals.

This is one of the few autographs I bought. It was at a card show in the 80's and I believe cost me twenty five cents.

Just about caught up now for the month. I'm surprised I can still find stuff to show here.
