Highly-Anticipated Authentic NHL® Autographed Lafrenière Items Now Available
CARLSBAD, Ca. (March 08, 2021) - For years, hockey fans and collectors have been keeping a close eye on Alexis Lafrenière, the young phenom who joined the ranks of NHL® Young Guns this season. While fans have been able to collect Lafrenière Team Canada and Rimouski Océanic autographed memorabilia items, the long wait to own a piece of Alexis Lafrenière official NHL® autographed memorabilia has finally come to fruition.
Upper Deck, the premier global sports and entertainment collectibles company, announced the release of an exclusive line of authentic autographed Alexis Lafrenière NHL® memorabilia. The new portfolio showcases new products featuring Lafrenière's signature on New York Rangers® branded items, making this the first time that collectors will be able to purchase NHL® licensed products with his signature. Additional pieces are expected to release later this season.
Lafrenière made his NHL® debut on opening night for the Rangers® and scored his first goal back in January, an overtime game-winner against the Buffalo Sabres®. Recently, he was bumped up to the team's first line.
'We are excited to release these highly anticipated products to the public,' said Upper Deck Authenticated Director Gabriel Garcia. 'Alexis is an integral part of the Upper Deck family, and we couldn't be more honored to be part of his journey by offering collectors his first-ever autographed NHL® pieces.'
The exclusive collection features an autographed Draft Day print with Lafrenière donning his New York Rangers® jersey as the '#1 Draft Pick.' Also included in the release are a variety of autographed Rangers® hockey pucks with Lafrenière's signature along with his new jersey number 13. Collectors can also opt for a New York Rangers® clear acrylic puck that includes a '#1 Pick' inscription.
