Mark Messier IP

I knew Mark Messier would be at the Quebec International Hockey Pee-Wee Tournament this morning as the assistant-coach for the New York Rangers' AAA Pee-Wee team. His team played at 8AM, so I got there around 7:30 and he was right where the players enter the ice, chatting with some other people while the ice was getting resurfaced. I asked him for an autograph (I had brought my plexi-glass card from this year's UD Trilogy series and a blue permanent Sharpie) and he didn't seem to mind, as I was the only one to ask him for an autograph before the game (at that place at least). I'm very happy with the result! And the card looks even better than on the scan!
