Hounding haul: Ottawa Senators

In getting ready to hound NHL teams, I usually pull together a team set of cards, with as many as four cards per player. Some times, we're able to get all four cards signed. Other times, we're happy to walk away with a single card signed.

Fortune must have been on our side in mid-February, when the Ottawa Senators traveled to Hockey Bay to play the Tampa Bay Lightning. In what was a continuation of a run of solid hounding days, we walked away with another 28 autographs, including 27 cards, for the collection.

The Senators who signed four cards for us were:

Goalie Alex Auld,

defenseman Matt Carkner,

left winger Nick Foligno and

center Kyle Turris.

Also signing cards that day were:

Milan Michalek, from left, Chris Neil and Chris Phillips, and

Bobby Butler, left, and Zack Smith.

Don't worry, either, as I didn't get shut out on pucks. Though I had 2012 All Star Game pucks some for Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson and Jason Spezza (who we came up empty-handed with), Michalek signed this Senators puck.
