Remember last week, when I spoke of two returns but only mentioned the TJ Brodie one? Well, it's time for the second one, featuring these two cards of Ottawa Senators top center Kyle Turris:
In my case, as usual, I sent in cards of him wearing different uniforms - both of them featuring the alternate captain's "A", proving he's become an integral part of the Sens.
Here's the white (away) uniform first, from Upper Deck's 2015-16 MVP set (card #31):
because of a high ankle sprain, and Ottawa narrowly missed the playoffs, costing the entire coaching staff their jobs. After 58- and 64-point seasons, he posted 30 this year, a roughly similar pace given that he'd have faced the Montréal Canadiens a couple of times in the games he missed, and he and the rest of the team usually have the Habs' number.
He signed both cards in black sharpie and added his #7 at the end. It was a 157-day return that made me extremely happy, as it gives me a 5/7 return rate this year (I took it easier than in years past).
