For players selected to be a NHL® All-Star, they are in store for an action packed weekend of events. Upper Deck Athlete Relations staff are busy during the weekend to secure signing sessions with some of the biggest NHL® stars for upcoming releases. Check out some of the players our guys tracked down during the weekend!
Tyler Seguin shows off one of his signed O-Pee-Chee Platinum die-cut cards.
Before he scored the hardest slap shot at the NHL® All-Star Skills competition, Shea Weber used his muscles to sign some autographs for new Upper Deck hockey releases.
John Tavares takes some time to sign autograph cards for new and older trading card sets.
Anze Kopitar shows off a recently signed card showing him with the Stanley Cup.
Carey Price give us a "Price-less" expression as he shares his new autograph O-Pee-Chee Platinum card.
Upper Deck brought in the #1 Draft Pick in the 2014 NHL® Draft, Aaron Ekblad to sign FREE autographs for fans in attendance.
Obviously with such tremendous demands on their time, not all the players were able to take time out to sign. However, by being on site and active throughout the weekend, we were able to connect with agents and player reps. We had very productive conversations about athletes we are still chasing for autographs like Vladimir Tarasenko and about other players we may do deals with in the future.
