We arrived back home a day earlier than we had initially anticipated so there's some downtime tonight before we all hustle back to the daily grind. Perfect time to post the contents from the second of four 2016-17 Upper Deck blaster purchases from last week.
A warning in advance, it wasn't an overly exciting blaster.
|#16 David Pastrnak, Boston Bruins|
|#5 Kevin Bieksa, Anaheim Ducks|
|#49 Gabriel Landeskog, Colorado Avalanche|
|#101 Brendan Gallagher, Montreal Canadiens|
Fun guy to watch; not one to shy away from getting in the dirty areas and hanging out in the crease. The type of player who you tend to despise but would love to have on your team.
|#93 Devan Dubnyk, Minnesota Wild|
Having another solid season thus far backstopping the Wild. I've been hearing his name thrown around in Vezina talk lately, it's still early though, we'll have to see about the hardware.
|#185 Andre Burakovsky, Washington Capitals|
|#196 Ondrej Pavelec, Winnipeg Jets|
|#191 Nicklas Backstrom, Washington Capitals|
|#119 Calvin de Haan, New York Islanders|
|#162 Vladimir Tarasenko, St. Louis Blues|
I've laid all my high hopes of a nice pull from these blasters on the Young Guns checklist. Featuring a strong crop of rookies, there's always a good possibility of scoring a promising rookie.

|#228 Sonny Milano, Columbus Blue Jackets YG RC|
|#246 Justin Bailey, Buffalo Sabres YG RC|
|#C24 Gabriel Landeskog, Colorado Avalanche|
A 'UD Canvas' card of Gabriel Landeskog sharing a high five with Avalanche mascot Bernie, the St. Bernard was probably my favorite card from the entire blaster. What can I say, I'm a sucker for any piece of cardboard featuring a mascot.
