Currently with the Dresdner Eislowen (Germany).
Fan letter sent: November 23, 2012.
Autographs received: January 30, 2013.
On the same exact day that I received these two autographed trading cards from Rockford IceHogs goalie Alec Richards, he was assigned to the Dresdner Eislowen in Germany. This was because the Chicago Blackhawks acquired Henrik Karlsson earlier in the week and assigned him to Rockford.
Richards played 4 seasons at Yale University, followed by 4 more seasons split between the AHL's Rockford IceHogs and the ECHL's Toledo Walleye. With two capable netminders in Chicago and another two in Rockford, his future in the Blackhawks' organization is uncertain. Hopefully, he catches the attention of another NHL team that might bring him back to North America.
Anyway, Richards nicely signed my two cards in black Sharpie marker, adding his jersey number beneath his 'graph.
