March 1--Pat Boutette

Pat Boutette

Selected by Toronto Maple Leafs round 9 #139 overall 1972 NHL Amateur Draft.

Pat Boutette enjoyed a fine 10-year NHL career with the Toronto Maple Leafs, Hartford Whalers and Pittsburgh Penguins. Although he stood at just 5'8" and 175lbs, "Booter" was a feisty right winger who was as good a play maker as he was a goal scorer.
Boutette did not debut in Toronto until 1975-76. He still had 2 years of University left and then apprenticed in the minor leagues for two seasons with the Oklahoma City Blazers.
Into his fifth season with the Leafs, Boutette was traded to the Hartford Whalers where, despite his short stay, he scored a personal-best 80 points in 80 games for the struggling Whalers. In 1981, he was dispatched to the Pittsburgh Penguins, where he continued to play his aggressive game in the company of Paul Gardner and Rick Kehoe.
By 1984-85, however, the rugged winger finally began to slow down. His numbers fell off as he was traded back to the Whalers where he played briefly before retiring from the Binghamton Whalers of the AHL at the close of the season.

What. Blank cards with no autographs you say.

I guess this is one of the hazards of TTM autographs. He graciously signed all of his cards-----on the back.
Never realized how colourful the backs are when they are all from different years.
Received these blue ink signed cards TTM.

Enclosed his business card unsigned. (even on the back)
