Upper Deck NHL Hockey Cards Mid-Season Preview – Anchored by another remarkable rookie class, the NHL is delivering a thrilling season. Coming up on the mid-way point, the season has been marked by a franchise record breaking win streak by the Chicago Blackhawks and a consecutive points streak by league leading Patrick Kane.
The Stanley Cup Champions continue to roll despite big roster changes in the off-season due to salary cap restrictions. The addition of league leading rookie Artemi Panarin has made general manager Stan Bowman seem like a genius.
Alexander Ovechkin and the league leading Washington Capitals continue to impress in the East. And the New York Rangers appear poised for another run at their elusive Cup.
Else where around the league, despite the injury to highly touted prospect Connor McDavid, interest in his cards has helped fuel a healthy 2015-16 hockey card market. The Motor City is in love with rookie Dylan Larkin and Buffalo Sabres fans realize that Jack Eichel is far from being anybody’s consolation prize.
Here is a look at some of the upcoming NHL licensed trading card products from Upper Deck and links to player profiles of top performing rookies from the 2015 NHL Draft Class.
