Cory Stillman Autograph Card

Ah, yes - the much-maligned 1995-96 Be A Player set from Upper Deck, with all the team logos missing. This is card #S132 in the set, from which I have already featured cards by Keith Tkachuk, Petr Nedved, Pierre Turgeon, and Brian Savage.

This time, it's former Calgary Flames winger Cory Stillman. Stillman was a first-round pick in the 1992 NHL draft (6th overall) and spent many seasons on the Flames' first line before being traded to the St. Louis Blues.

His main achievement may have been the consecutive Southern Stanley Cups, in 2004 with the Tampa Bay Lightning and 2006 with the Carolina Hurricanes - both times against Albertan teams, the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers, respectively, both in 7-games series.

After time spent with the Ottawa Senators and Florida Panthers, he is back in Carolina with the 'Canes.
