Team report: Montreal Canadiens

More than anything else, the memory that Colin and I will take away from hounding the Montreal Canadiens during their recent visit to Hockey Bay was the diversity of items we both got signed.

Well, that and the fact that it was the most productive outing, so far, of the shortened 2013 hounding campaign.

All told, between a puck (signed by Montreal rookie Alex Galchenyuk), a photo (like the one, at top, that Canadiens captain Brian Gionta signed for Colin), a memorabilia card, a slew of player cards and a wallpaper-based team sheet for Colin, we added another 57 autographs to the collection.

Here's a sampling of the cards that Montreal players signed for us:

Top row: Colby Armstrong, Francis Boullion, Peter Budaj;
Middle row: Gabriel Dumont, Lars Eller, Alexei Emelin; and
Bottom row: Alex Galchenyuk, Brian Gionta and Tomas Kaberle.

Also signing cards were:
Top row: Andrei Markov, Travis Moen and Max Pacorietty; and
Bottom row: Brandon Prust, Michale Ryder and P.K. Subban.

We also lucked out and had a pair of Canadiens knock out full card-book pages for us:

David Desharnais signed four cards.

Tomas Plekanic also signed four cards.

Peter Budaj added to the ongoing Threads project.

Next up: Carolina's Jordan Staal
