Hounding haul: Buffalo Sabres

We may not go out often during the 2011-12 hockey-hounding campaign, but when we do, we'll do so with a purpose. With my hometown Buffalo Sabres visiting Hockey Bay and a free Saturday morning, Colin and I kicked off the season with a strong effort. In less than two hours, we managed to snag 32 autographs.

Some of the highlights:

Top row: Brad Boyes and Jhonas Enroth; and
Bottom row: Jordan Leopold and Rob Ray
A hat trick of pucks from Marc-Andre Gragnani
A pair of pucks from Nathan Gerbe
Christian Erhroff and Jhonas Enroth signed international pucks. 
Sabres goalies Ryan Miller and Jhonas Enroth added to our ongoing Threads collection.
Top row: Brad Boyes, Jhonas Enroth and Jochen Hect; and
Bottom row: Tyler Myers, Thomas Vanek and Mike Weber
Tyler Ennis signed these four cards.


  1. Ennis is one of the nicest players I've ever come across in seeking autographs. Tremendous person and understands that fame is fleeting. While signing for a group of fans after a prospect camp at Niagara University, he asked, "Anyone else need an autograph?" The cheers went up, a smile on his face and he kept signing until everyone got his autograph. Class act.
