Atlanta Thrashers superstar defenseman and former Stanley Cup champion Dustin Byfuglien will sign free autographs Saturday at the Panini America booth during the 2011 NHL Draft in St. Paul, Minn.

Byfuglien, a 2011 NHL All-Star and Minnesota native , will appear at the Panini America booth starting at 10 a.m. Saturday. Byfuglien, who tallied 11 goals in leading the Chicago Blackhawks to the 2010 Stanley Cup, will enter next season with 162 career points in 341 NHL games.

In addition to the Byfuglien signing, Panini America officials late last week unveiled details of the company’s exclusive 2011 NHL Draft wrapper-redemption program.
