Filip Chlapik Autographed Card

Anders Nilsson and Filip Chlapik stole the game tonight for the Ottawa Senators as they won against the Philadelphia Flyers, 2-1. Nilsson's season save percentage is at .925 in 10 games so farand his 5-4-1 record is keeping the Sens from being last in the league, and his 26 saves were once again a factor tonight; Chlapik scored the game-winner in the second period.

Chlapik was a second-round pick (48th overall in 2015) after a 75-point rookie season with the LHJMQ's Charlottetown Islanders - good enough to be on the All-Rookie Team - and won silver medals with the Czech Republic at the 2014 U-18 World Juniors and the 2014 Ivan Hlinka (U-17) Memorial Tournament.

In Charlottetown, he was teammates with Anaheim Ducks prospect Daniel Sprong.

The Sens value him enough to have him with the big club instead of the AHL's Belleville Senators so he can suit up with the expected core from the next generation of Sens stars.

Here he is wearing the team's red (home) uniform on card #159 from Upper Deck's all-foil, hard cardboard 2017-18 O-Pee-Chee Platinum set and Marquee Rookie sub-set:
He signed it in blue sharpie during the last training camp, adding his jersey number (78) at the end, which fits him perfectly in my Sens Numbers Project.
