53rd Quebec International Pee-Wee Hockey Tournament - My 1st Outing

Another year, another edition of the Quebec International Pee-Wee Tournament!

This morning I went to the Galeries de la Capitale, a shopping center located about 10 minutes away from the Colisée Pepsi, for an exhibition game featuring the Anaheim Jr. Ducks. One of their assistant coaches this year is none other than Scott Niedermayer, whose oldest son Logan is playing with the team. Before the game, he generously signed all these for me!

I went back to the Galeries de la Capitale later in the day for the Atlanta Fire's exhibition game. Another future Hall of Famer was there, but this time it was a baseball player. Tom Glavine was around to watch one of his sons, Peyton, play for the Fire. During an intermission, he signed all 4 cards that I had:

Did you know that the same year Mr. Glavine was drafted by the Atlanta Braves, he was also drafted by the Los Angeles Kings? He elected to play baseball though and the rest is history!
