Erik Haula Autographed Puck

AME Sports is a sports memorabilia and autograph store located in Roseville, MN, a suburb of Minneapolis. Their prices for already-signed memorabilia can be expensive, but when they bring in guests to sign in the store, it's actually very affordable, and I try and participate whenever I can.

Their most recent guest was Minnesota Wild center Erik Haula, and although the four-hour drive from Moorhead was a bit too far, I was able to mail them a puck, along with the autograph fee, and they got it signed and sent back.

Haula is Finnish by birth, but pretty much all of his American-based hockey has come from the state of Minnesota. He played the 2008-09 season with Shattuck-St. Mary's in Fairbult, MN, followed by three years of college hockey at the University of Minnesota, before being drafted by the Wild with the 182nd pick of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. He played in 46 NHL games during the 2013-14 season, scoring six goals and nine assists. Haula really came alive during the 2014 playoffs, though, picking up four goals and three assists in 13 games.
