TTM Mailday: Boyd Devereaux
I was really happy to find a home address for Deveraux as I really enjoyed his play with the Leafs. I really thought he was a good character player in the NHL, who put in an honest effort each and every game.
Deveraux wrapped up his NHL career with the Leafs by netting a hat trick in his final game. How many players can say that they managed a hat trick in there last NHL game. The Leafs brass was bringing in a youth movement and they decided not to bring Devereaux back.
I'm glad to land these three cards. I'm always happy to add signed cards of world junior alumni, as I really enjoy watching the tournament every Christmas season. The 08-09 OPC is a set card and the 05-06 Parkhurst is a set card as well.
I have been getting around to sending out a few requests these days and I hope to see my mailbox more full in the future.
