Torrey Mitchell Autographed Card

The Montréal Canadiens are playing like crap tonight against the San Jose Sharks, but at least GM Marc Bergevin's trade deadline acquisition from last season, Torrey Mitchell, scored against his first NHL team, reducing San Jose's lead to 3-2.

I don't believe it'll be enough, which sucks both because I like rooting for my hometown team (and Mitchell's), but also because it means I'll have to take a day off from insulting the Sharks and comparing their losing ways to those of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

At least I know that even if they make the playoffs, they're still fodder for either the Anaheim Ducks, Los Angeles Kings or Chicago Blackhawks, as is customary in Choker Central. But hey, the Habs are also making a habit of finishing close to last every three years or so...

So here's Mitchell, wearing the best Sharks white uniform, from Upper Deck's 2008-09 Power Play box set (with card #243 in the series), which he signed in blue sharpie:
Mitchell is almost an ideal fourth-line center, as he's a right-hand shot, wins many face-offs, is sound defensively and can score once in a while; if it wasn't that he takes too many penalties (many in the offensive zone), I'd like him even more.
