Zack Fitzgerald Autographed Card

Zack Fitzgerald was a third-round pick of the St. Louis Blues (88th overall in 2003) who played a single NHL game, a 17-shift performance with the Vancouver Canucks in 2007-08. He's been playing for the Sheffield Steelers of the EIHL (British Elite League) for the past three seasons, after a decade of toiling around the AHL and two stints in the ECHL, mostly spent accumulating penalty minutes:

That being said, he's also won a championship while playing abroad (that's him with his wife, a fan of Iron Maiden):
Still, sometimes one game is enough for posterity, and he slots in extremely nicely as #49 in my Canucks Numbers Project, with card #503 from Upper Deck's 2008-09 O-Pee-Chee set and Marquee Rookies sub-set:
Note that the card lists him as "Zach", but he actually spells it "Zack". He signed it in blue sharpie while playing with the Hamilton Bulldogs in 2011-12.
