The 2011-12 NHL trading card season begins in earnest next week with the highly anticipated release of 2011-12 Score Hockey, complete with the landmark Hot Rookies Rookie Card subset sure to set Panini America’s premiere release ablaze.
Last week we shared just some of the details surrounding the slew of this season’s first-time skaters whose first NHL Rookie Cards will be featured in Hot Rookies, including 2011 No. 1 overall pick Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and fellow top-10 selections such as Gabriel Landeskog, Adam Larsson, Mika Zibanejad and Sean Couturier.
Today, we share the glorious first images of those key RCs. Enjoy, and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for additional pre-release details regarding 2011-12 Score Hockey.

I like the blend of the team colors and the action shots instead of photo shoot poses.
Honestly, Panini’s entry-level end products were some of the best last year and this year’s Score looks to keep in line with that success.
Now, If you guys can get the mid-range stuff (Contenders, Luxury, Suite, Limited, etc) up a notch or two and take the Dominion cards to new heights (think more auto patches on everything) you’ll really be onto something.
But you have some work to do.
Thanks as always for the new images, love seeing the sneak peeks.
How many short printed rookies are there?
They look good!
Looking forward to snagging the Read and Couturier!
They look good, but I preferred how they looked last year. I’ll still be buying a box or two just for the fun of it. 😀
Are there going to be signed SP versions of the rookies like there were last year? And if so, even if it doesn’t matter all that much, will they be on-card or sticker autos?
Wow they look great! Like the color blend in the background.
These are great looking cards. That Scheifele is going to be a hot card. Will there be any autographed SP’s in this set?
What is the tentative release date for the product?
I cannot wait for this set to arrive. I bought a lot of boxes of this product and this year’s rookie crop seems to be better than ever. I just hope these are more common to find in packs then last year but these cards are going to be awesome. Can’t wait for October 26th! I might buy two boxes!
That’s what we like to hear! Glad you’re looking forward to it.
Plenty of surprising rookies this season that are not top tier but are playing like they are….Score is always a fun product!
Are they all short printed, or are some considered “regular” cards? thanks!
I believe the 20 cards shown are all short-printed.
Ah, very nice. I’m excited for this product.
I already preordered my case at the local Hobby Shop. Wednesday can not come soon enough!
What is the rate of insertion of the cards?
I can’t wait for these to come out. I’ve got 1 case coming, thinking of a second case if the wife lets me. Ha. I’m still working on last years set, missing 1 SSP rookie auto (Niederreiter), and 11 base autos and may try for the same thing again this year.
Has the release date changed? I thought today was the day 2011-12 Score was to be released but I’ve seen in a couple of places that the release date was changed to 11/9
The product began shipping today.
Will these shorts prints have auto redemptions like last year?
