Usually everyone who follows hockey has a favourite NHL team and worships it to some degree or another, whether it be watching the games, or naming your pets after your favourite players. Though NHL...

Nice article and a cool story, especially with the adopt a dog program and you meeting the Jets GM. And you're absolutely right; there's a special vibe at hockey games in smaller leagues, which is something I love to experience when I watch hockey games in Denmark.

That sounds really neat! So you follow your local teams and go to games often? Is hockey big in Denmark, or what sport do most people play?

Absolutely. Last season I even made sure to meet all the best goalies in the league when they were in town. I created a custom made hockey card set featuring authentic autographs and my own personal design (the pictures of the goalie masks were taken by me when I met these goalies). It's amazing how friendly these goalies were! All of them took their time to chat, sign and let me take pictures of their masks. Sure, the Danish league isn't exactly the NHL, but it's a solid one with many great athletes. It's roughly the same level of play as the ECHL.

Hockey is a top 3 sport. People here follow soccer more intensely, but actually attendance figures for soccer and handball are declining while hockey keeps attracting more and more fans.

Good luck with the contest! With this entry you've certainly made your entry noticed.

Those are some beautiful cards, and I know from doing TTM autos, knowing they are personal makes them all the more special. I really thank you for reading my article, and it is always great to meet the great people that use SCF. I know how awesome hockey season is, and I can hardly wait the summer, nothing really compares! Awesome that you get to meet those players, and I wish you best of luck with your collection, REALLY NEAT! For the time it costs you to make a card, the story that goes with it really lasts a long time! Thanks again!

It was a pleasure to chat with a fellow Leafs fan, buddy. Great job on the article as well, so I felt like I wanted to let you know about it.
