Artem Anisimov: Two Autographed Cards
Sure, the star of the game was Corey Crawford - he of the 39 saves on 40 Habs' shots - but it was nice to see the Hawks' middle-six center go for it; prior to last season, he'd always been healthy in his NHL career, and he's the type of guy who's good at both ends of the ice, so he's very important to his teams.
In his career so far, he's been part of trades involving Rick Nash and Brandon Saad - two first-liners. Though he now wears #15 with Chicago, he wore #42 with both of his previous NHL teams. Here he is carrying the puck up-ice with the New York Rangers' blue (home) uniform, from Panini's 2010-11 Score collection (card #327 in the series):
He signed them in blue sharpie with his #42 tacked on at the end.
