Steve Jensen Private Signing

I recently had the opportunity to get an autograph from a former Minnesota North stars player, just because of Facebook. Since I am following the Minnesota North Stars, which focuses more on remembering the legacy of Minnesota's first NHL team, I discovered an upcoming private signing with former North stars left winger Steve Jensen, who signed an 8x10 for me.

Jensen only played in 7 NHL seasons (4 with the North Stars and three with the Los Angeles Kins), but he was still able in do some amazing things. In the 1976-77 season, the North Stars became the first team in NHL history to have four rookies with 30 goals (Jensen had 22), and during the 1980-81 season, he became only the fifth American-born player to score 100 career goals. Since 1985, Jensen has owned and operated the Heartland Hockey Camp out of Deerwood, MN.

TTM Return from Olaf Kolzig

I've been on a bit of a drought with my TTM returns, but with reason. First of all, it's during the off-season, and second of all, I just haven't been sending out as many to retired players as I did last year, so it's to be expected. Anyway, I did get this one from Olaf Kolzig, and yes, I sent this request primarily to get the hot dog card signed.
