Plugging away

You should be able to tell when you're reaching critical mass in your autographed puck collection when you start placing more emphasis on ancillary items whenever you prepare for an incoming team.

In Montreal's case, the first time in years that I haven't carried a puck, getting goalie Jaroslav Halak to sign the Slovakian team jersey is the perfect case in point. The 11th player to sign the jersey, Halak's autograph is in the lower right corner.

Remaining players we'll try to add this season are Buffalo Sabres defenseman Andrej Sekara on Jan. 22 and Washington Capitals defenseman Milan Jurcina on Feb. 14.
