Zach Boychuk Autograph Card

The Carolina Hurricanes' first-round pick (14th overall) in 2008, Zach Boychuk has yet to make a name for himself in the NHL, with a total of 18 points (7 goals) in 72 games over 4 seasons, but there's always that chance that it could be just because he's been playing with the Hurricanes all this time, where all quality wingers play with Eric Staal and all the other centers have to play with third-liners (at best).

And while Boychuk has had trouble consistently playing above the point-per-game ratio in the AHL as well (while playing, again, with the Hurricanes' prospects...), he did have a great 2010-11 season with the Charlotte Checkers when he went 22-43-65 in 60 games.

Also, I'm always happy when a player scores his first NHL goal against Martin Brodeur, which he did in February 2010.

He won gold at the World Juniors for Team Canada in both 2008 and 2009.

This card shows him wearing the Hurricanes' white (away) jersey, and is from Upper Deck's 2010-11 Artifacts set (card #AF-ZA) and features an on-sticker autograph in blue sharpie. Notice how his jersey number (11) falls right in the middle of his signature!
