Tony Granato Autograph Card

Congratulations are in order for the San Jose Sharks, who tied their series with the St. Louis Blues tonight thanks to a 4-0 shutout win. I predicted this series would go the full 7 games, and as of now, it seems like it will - I just thought the Blues wouldn't have to rely on Brian Elliott being perfect to get there.

I am underlining this win with this card of Tony Granato's, the signed insert version of card #272 from In The Game's 1998-99 Be A Player set, signed on-card in thin black sharpie and showing him in the late 1990s white (home) uniform:
The reason why I'm featuring Granato is that he recently left his position as an assistant coach with the Detroit Red Wings to coach his university alma mater, the famed University of Wisconsin Badgers. He'll be joined by his brother, Don Granato, and former NHLer Mark Osiecki - both fellow Badger alumni.

Best of luck to them.
