T. J. Galiardi Swatch Card

Well, the San Jose Sharks won tonight, forcing a Game 7 in their series against the Los Angeles Kings; the game-winning goal was scored by T. J. Galiardi in the second period.

Galiardi was a second-round pick (55th overall) of the Colorado Avalanche, who saw some offensive upside on his part, seeing as he was paired with Matt Duchene and Paul Stastny a few times during his tenure with the team. He finished sixth in rookie scoring and accumulated nearly 10% of his points short-handed. He struggled in his second and third seasons, though, and was traded to the Sharks near the deadline last season.

He played in Germany during the lock-out, accumulating 6 points in 7 games before sustaining an injury.

I acquired this card via trade last summer, for a dual-player jersey card I can't remember:

It's from Panini's 2011-12 Titanium set (card #10, part of the Game-Worn Gear sub-set); the swatch is nice, dark blue, which leads me to think it's either from a sock, or the darker (home) jersey, rather than the white (away) one shown on the card.
