Why go after this autograph: Hodgson is considered the 2nd bet hockey prospect right now behind Nikita Filatov. He was recently on the cover of The Hockey News as a future star to look out for. This season he played with the Battalion and rolled up a 43-49-92 statline in just 53 games. Then toss in another 13 points in 6 games during the playoffs and you can see why I am jazzed about getting this one back. His rights currently belong to Vancouver, who had himup very briefly this season then send him back down. I look to see him work is way into the Canucks rotation very soon, like next season. He has already proven that he is a monster in the junior and international levels. Now it’s time to see what he can do in the NHL.
