One return today.
Andre Benoit 1/1 c/o Ottawa Senators in 29 days
Nice success from the Sens' d-man. Glad to see him getting a real chance in the NHL after spending years in the AHL and a season in the KHL.

Three returns today, including a couple more from spring training.
Erasmo Ramirez 1/1 c/o Mariners ST in 9 days
Great return from the young M's pitcher. He looked really solid in 8 starts last season and even had a 10 strikeout game. He should become a fixture in the M's rotation starting this season.
Lucas Luetge 1/1 c/o Mariners ST in 9 days
Nice return the M's reliever. He did pretty well in his first season in the majors in 2012 and was even part of that M's 6-man no-hitter last year.
Simon Despres 1/1 c/o Penguins in 13 days
Awesome return from the Pens' defenseman. He was a 1st round pick in 2009 and looks like the real deal. He could be a serious offensive threat from the blueline in a few years.

Four returns today:
Nick Franklin 1/1 c/o Mariners ST in 10 days
Awesome success from one of the M's top prospects. Seattle has been very good to me this spring, in fact, I'm 4 for 5 with M's players so far.
Kris Russell 1/1 c/o Blues in 42 days
Nice return from the St. Louis d-man. Just wish he had signed it in a darker color haha.
Colin Wilson 1/1 c/o Predators in 43 days
Nice return from the Nashville center. He seems to have really settled into his role with the team and has put up pretty consistent numbers ever since coming into the NHL.
Duncan Siemens 1/1 c/o Saskatoon Blades in 143 days
Very nice success from the 2011 11th overall pick for the Colorado Rockies. Kid has a lot of potential and great size.

Three returns to start off the week and one that came in Saturday that I'm just getting around to posting.
Stephen Pryor 1/1 c/o Mariners ST in 7 days
Another nice return from a young M's player. He pitched in 26 games out of the bullpen for Seattle last season and shows a lot of potential. Along with Luetge and Wilhelmsen, he's now the 3rd pitcher from their 6 pitcher no-hitter whose autograph I've obtained TTM.
Malcolm Subban 1/1 c/o Belleville Bulls in 17 days
Great success from the Bruins goaltender of the future and another 2012 1st round pick (24th overall) to add to my collection. Really excited to get this one.
Alexandre Burrows 1/1 c/o Canucks in 45 days
Very nice return from the Vancouver winger. He's about as consistent a goal-scorer as there is out there. This was my second attempt with him and I'm really glad to finally add him to my collection.
Mike Cammalleri 1/1 c/o Flames in 46 days
Awesome success from the Calgary center. He has a nice shot and has been a great scorer for years, his best coming in 08-09 when he scored 39 goals. He's been on fire as of late this season and has been playing at a PPG pace. Didn't sign my card, but sent a signed postcardish thing.

Couple of returns in the past few days.
Matt Martin 2/2 c/o Islanders in 50 days
Great successes from the Isles' tough guy. He set the NHL record for hits last season with 374.
Mark Letestu 1/1 c/o Blue Jackets in 23 days
Nice return from the Columbus center. He does a bit of everything out on the ice and plays a nice two-way game while also chipping in 20+ points a season and doing well in the face-off circle.
Also picked these up cheap to add to my growing NHL prospects collection:
Should be a 1st round pick in 2013
1st round pick (15th overall) in 2012 for the Ottawa Senators
6th round pick in 2011 by the Flames but has turned into a stud in the WHL. He's currently 31-8-5 with a 2.30 GAA.

3 returns in the past few days:
Christian Friedrich 1/1 c/o Rockies ST in 27 days
FINALLY! Back on the board with my first ST return in a minute. Love how this turned out and he also sent a really nice note. Puts me at 12/30 this spring.
Jean Pronovost 1/1 c/o Hockey Ministries International in 46 days
Great return from original great Penguin. Signed in ballpoint and also included a short note.
Mike Connolly 1/1 c/o Lake Erie Monsters in 65 days
Nice return from the Avs prospect. He was a beast in college for Minnesota-Duluth and led the team to their first ever NCAA Championship in 2011 as the leading scorer.

I use a camera. I literally set my laptop to sleep, put my cards or photos up against my screen, and snap a photo. Then I crop it and touch it up a bit.
