Anze Kopitar Swatch Card

It took me a while to get my hands on another Prime Numbers card from Donruss' 2011-12 Elite set from Panini, but trading a ton of last year's Upper Deck 2015-16 Tim Hortons cards landed me this one of Anze Kopitar, the Los Angeles Kings' new captain:
It shows him wearing L.A.'s black (home) uniform, with a matching game-worn watch.

Though he didn't register a point as Team Europe beat Team USA 3-0 earlier today (on a terrific performance from Jaroslav Halak, who stopped 35 shots - many of them "the difficult kind"), Kopitar led by example as the team's captain, holding off much of the American offense. Patrick Kane, Max Pacioretty and Zach Parise were pretty much invisible throughout the game.

That puts the Americans in the difficult position of pretty much having to beat Team Canada, whereas it gives the Eight Nation Army some breathing room.
