THE GOALIE PROJECT - Hedberg/Bannerman (Part 1)

We're looking at yet another round of my favorite project! Today we are looking at a back-up goalie from the Cloutier era and a goalie that is not known for his time in Vancity. First on the docket, is Johan Hedberg. Let's take a look at his Canuck cards.

Bee hive cards are always cool and the Save-on-Foods cards were "hot" cards around my elementary school at the time.

No Hedberg rookie cards but here are a couple of his cards from years not in Canucks gear. 

Next is a goaltender whose mask is known by most goal tending fans - Murray Bannerman. His mask is iconic and if you want to see even more on it check out bamlinden's famous Rate My Mask postings. 

As you can see from the back of the card, Bannerman's Canucks career didn't last very long. In fact, the "1 GP" doesn't tell the entire story. What does is the "20 mins" stat right beside it. At least Murray didn't give up a goal in those 20 Canuck minutes. This is the only Bannerman card I have and I doubt I'll be finding a Murray Bannerman Canucks card anytime soon (if it even exists). If it does and you have it, drop me a comment and we'll work something out.
