Philippe Cornet Autograph Card

After years toiling in the ECHL and AHL, Philippe Cornet opted to take his game to Norway in 2015-16 and Finland last year, where his game evolved from a pass-first mentality in the LHJMQ in Juniors to becoming a legitimate goal-scoring threat; indeed, his 12 goals with Hämeenlinnan Pallokerho (HPK) ranked second on the team, which placed fifth in the overall standings (out of 15).

At 27, the 6'0", 200-pound winger may get an invitation to participate in the upcoming Olympics with Team Canada, since the NHL will not be represented. Speaking of which, here he is from his Edmonton Oilers days, on card #I-PCO from Panini's 2013-14 Contenders collection and NHL Ink sub-set:
It shows him wearing Reebok's ugly post-lockout blue (home) uniform and features a blue-sharpied on-sticker autograph.
