Charles Hudon: Two Autographed Cards

The Montréal Canadiens and their prized prospect Charles Hudon got some bad news earlier today, when it was announced he had suffered a broken sternum in practice. He seemed to finally be ready to take over a permanent spot on the team, with 2 assists in 3 games at the NHL level and 14 points in 15 AHL games with the St. John's IceCaps, after three seasons in the minors that started with a Rookie Of The Year trophy and two second-place finishes among the team's top points producers.

Back when he was a teenager, he was a mainstay on Team Canada, as can be attested by these two cards that he signed last year from Upper Deck's 2014 Team Canada Juniors/Women set:
On the left is card #52 in the series, showing him wearing his country's white (home) uniform from the 2011 U-18 World Championship, while the card on the right is #108 in the collection, showing him in the red (away) uniform, from the 2014 World Juniors.

He autographed both in blue sharpie, adding both of his jersey numbers, 16 and 10 respectively, at the end. 10 has been his usual number for most of his career, but seeing as the Habs retired it for Guy Lafleur, Hudon currently wears #54 in the NHL.
