Panini America On Location: Day Two at the 2012 NHLPA Rookie Showcase (Updated)

August 28, 2012

TORONTO — Traditionally speaking, Day 2 at the NHLPA Rookie Showcase is the day. It’s when the young NHL superstars in attendance finally put on their NHL uniforms and take the ice for Panini America photographers.

Thousands of pictures will be taken today — and the best of them will adorn what promise to be the most collected cards of the 29 players in attendance at the 2012 NHLPA Rookie Showcase. But Panini America will do more than just take pictures today. They’ll conduct interviews, secure autographs and procure event-worn memorabilia, all essential content for the next wave of great NHL trading cards.

You can follow today’s action in real time by following the Panini America Twitter account. And we’ll compile some of the best images right here on The Knight’s Lance. To get us started today, the following gallery includes some as-yet-unpublished images from yesterday’s autograph-intensive action as well as the first few shots from this morning.

Check back throughout today as we continue to update this gallery.

    Thanks for showing the glimpse of Jack Campbell signing his manufactured patch auto that I had requested (I think that is him). I cannot wait to get my hands onone of those, hopefully he makes his debut soon this season, in time for 2012-13 Limited, my favorite product.

    Haha, did Tomas Jurco draw a picture of Alex Ovechkin on one of his sketch cards? I can’t wait for Jurco to join the Wings, he’s awesome.
