Dave Dziurzynski Autographed Card

Dave Dziurzynski is sometimes thought of as an enforcer because of his 6'3" frame carrying 220 pounds, but he's more of an energy player who plays like a third-liner. As a matter of fact, he has 8 goals and 20 points in 42 AHL games this season, with 73 penalty minutes, marking his fifth 20-point season in six years with the Binghamton Senators, the one missing the mark being his 14 points in just 39 games in 2014-15.

In 14 games with the Ottawa Senators this year, he has a goal and 4 points.

And yet, he's mostly remembered for getting knocked out by the Toronto Maple Leafs' Fraser McLaren, a 6'5", 250-pound behemoth whose sole purpose on the ice is to inflict damage on other people's faces - on the day that his little brother, Darian Dziurzynski, signed his entry-level contract with the Phoenix Coyotes, no less.

It's with card #593 from Panini's 2013-14 Score set and Hot Rookies and Dual Rookie Class sub-sets, which he signed in blue sharpie, that I can mark him down as #59 in my Sens Numbers Project:
I seem to recall having pulled an insert of his in the past as well; look for it this summer, as I continue to try to get through my backlog of memorabilia cards.
