Mark Arcobello Autograph Card

And now, time for autographed card #2 in my 2013-14 Score (by Panini) box break, this Hot Rookies card of Edmonton Oilers 5'9'' forward Mark Arcobello:
The diminutive forward went undrafted after four seasons with the Yale Bulldogs, but worked his way through the Oilers' affiliates (the Stockton Thunder of the ECHL and the Oklahoma City Barons of the AHL, with which he almost a point-per-game player, including a 22-goal, 68-point - in 74 games - season in 2012-13 that culminated in a 12-goal, 20-point postseason in 17 games).

He played in one NHL game last year, filling in for now-departed captain Shawn Horcoff.

This could be the season the Oilers return to the postseason, with an attack that added David Perron, and Boyd Gordon and a defensive corps that added Andrew Ference, Philip Larsen and Denis Grebeshkov. A lot of grit to add to their already-potent offense...
