Panini America’s Final Photo Farewell from the 2012 NHLPA Rookie Showcase

August 30, 2012

The passing of time — albeit just more than one day — has done little to diminish Panini America’s collective enthusiasm, passion and excitement for this week’s 2012 NHLPA Rookie Showcase in Toronto. And although the two-day event officially ended late Tuesday night, we still have images to share.

So come behind the scenes with us as we bid a fitting photo farewell to the likes of Nail Yakupov, Ryan Murray, Alex Galchenyuk, Griffin Reinhart, Morgan Rielly and the 24 other young hockey superstars who made our time in Toronto way more enjoyable that it had a right to be.

And stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance in the coming days for the story of how one Panini America photo station at the 2012 NHLPA Rookie Showcase will change the way you look at hockey cards.
