Beau Bennett Autograph Card

Beau Bennett may not have played much in these Stanley Cup playoffs, but he's ready should an injury occur, as was almost the case when Bryan Rust became a game-time decision ahead of Game 2. He last played in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Final against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Pittsburgh Penguins don't need to make any changes, as they're currently leading the Cup Final 3-1 against the San Jose Sharks, with Matt Murray and Phil Kessel leading the charge.

Bennett's the highest born-and-raised Californian ever drafted in the NHL (20th overall in 2010), but injuries have marred his career so far, as the 24-year-old has only played in 129 regular-season games (registering 26 goals, 29 assists and 45 points in the process) spread over four seasons, only the first of which being one where he spent significant time in the AHL.

Here he is wearing the Pens' white (away) uniform, with the signed insert version of card #176 from Upper Deck's 2013-14 Trilogy set (and Level 1 Rookie Premieres sub-set), the front of which is almost all silver foil, though it appears blue in the scan:
It has an on-sticker blue-sharpied autograph.
