Jean-Guy Talbot

I have 20 new NHL autographs to show since the last post.  With these the grand total in my collection is now 3,310 unique NHL signatures.  

Jean-Guy Talbot
Defenseman Jean-Guy Talbot played over 1000 NHL games between 1955 and 1971.  He was a member of 7 Stanley Cup champion teams, all with Montreal.  After retiring as a player he returned to the league as a head coach with the Blues and Ranges.  For someone with 7 Cup rings he has a rather small amount of autographs on the market.
Richard Sevigny and Mike Vernon
Richard Sevigny won the Stanley Cup with the Habs in 1979 as a backup net minder.  At that point he hadn't even played a single minute in the NHL.  He then went on to play 180 games in the league.  He shared the 1981 Vezina trophy with Michel Larocque and Denis Herron.  
Mike Vernon had a long and storied career in the NHL.  Over 19 years in the league he won the Stanley Cup twice, 1989 and 1997, a William Jennings Trophy, a Conn Smythe and was named to 5 NHL All-Star teams.  
Alex Auld
Alex Auld saw well over 200 games of NHL action over a career that saw him stop in many cities as a backup or stop gap.  He was once a member of the Canucks, Panthers, Coyotes, Bruins, Senators, Stars, Rangers and Canadiens. 
Darryl Sutter
With the addition of Darry Sutter to my collection I now have a signature of all 6 Sutter brothers to play in the NHL.  Darryl spent his entire playing career with the Blackhawks and served as their team captain.  He's better known as a coach and GM, recently guiding the LA Kings to the 2012 Stanley Cup championship.

Russian D-man Yan Golubovsky played 56 NHL games between the Detroit Red Wings and Florida Panthers.  He played 12 regular season games for the 1998 Stanley Cup champions Red Wings, not enough to warrant his name on the trophy.
Jude Drouin and Chuck Hamilton
Jude Drouin made his NHL debut with the Montreal Canadiens in the late 1960s.  He spent most of his 10 seasons in the league between the North Stars, Islanders and Jets.  He was a member of the inaugural Winnipeg Jets NHL team in 1979.
