The Daily: 2013-14 Upper Deck Nikita Kucherov Rookie Card
Fresh off a week in which Nikita Kucherov was named the NHL’s First Star of the Week, the Tampa winger went out and set the tone for this week. He scored a pair of goals and added three assists in the Lightning’s 5-1 over Columbus. It also happened to be Tampa Bay’s sixth straight win.
Through 60 games, Kucherov already has 99 points, tops in the NHL. Chicago’s Patrick Kane is second with 90 points.
Kucherov has just six Rookie Cards to his name, coming from 2013-14 Upper Deck and Panini sets. He’s a bit of a modern hobby oddity in that none of them are autographs. His Young Guns RC from 2013-14 Upper Deck Series 2 Hockey has emerged as the most popular of them all even if it’s not the most rare.
