The 2013 NHL Draft isn’t just for show. Collectors can get into the action with exclusive trading cards.
This year’s draft is at the Prudential Center in Newark , N.J., and Panini announced its plans focusing on hockey in the New Jersey/ New York area.
Panini will hold a wrapper redemption program where collectors can get a six-card New Jersey Devils pack previewing the 2013-14 Score hockey design. The pack will include Martin Brodeur, Patrick Elias, Adam Henrique, Ilya Kovalchuk, Bryce Salvador and David Clarkson.
In addition, there are three bonus cards highlighting Stanley Cup titles for the Devils (Scott Neidermayer), New York Rangers (Mark Messier) and New York Islanders (Bryan Trottier).
To get a promo pack and a choice of bonus cards, fans have to bring one unopened hobby pack of 2012-13 Rookie Anthology to the Panini booth on the concourse starting at 1 p.m. on Sunday.
