I also collect with my 11 year old and together we collect Newfoundland born players as well as some Habs (YUCK!!) Martin St Louis and Halak (his favorite). We eased back during the lockout but will likely start up again with his collection now that hockey is back. We are excited to have NHL hockey again.
