It's all in the cards.

Welcome to Sunday evening. Tonight kicks off a weekly Sunday feature involving Igor Ulanov hockey cards. Pictured above is the fan club's collection of Ulanov stuff (minus the most prized possesion: the game-worn Paul Coffey Night jersey). Since there won't be much for news on the Ulanov front, Sundays will bring excerpts from the back of hockey cards.

First Up: card #416 from the Leaf Set, copyright 1994 by Donruss Inc. (top row, second from the right). The front shows Ulanov wearing the away (dark) Winnipeg Jets jersey while sporting a look of concentration. On the back it says, "While known more for his defensive play than his offensive abilities, Igor was just one assist shy from leading Jets' defensemen in that category last season." The back of the card also shows his stats from the 93-94 season. He played 74 games, had zero goals and seventeen assists. He sat at a -11 with 165 penalty minutes.

Now I'm off to E-bay to see if the ten cent Ulanov hockey card section has been replenished.

I think your collection of Igor Ulanov memorabilia exceeds that of Igor Ulanov.
