Marty Turco

Currently with the Chicago Blackhawks.
Fan letter sent December 1, 2010.
3/3 autographed cards received May 13, 2011.

Turco was signed by the Blackhawks as a replacement for Antti Niemi, whom they let go after he was awarded a salary in arbitration that would have put them over the salary cap.  Interestingly enough, it was Corey Crawford who stepped in for the Blackhawks as more of a go-to-guy and won 33 of 57 appearances, helping the 'Hawks clinch the eighth seed in the Western Conference.  5 1/2 months turn-around time for a guy who will most likely play only one season for the 'Hawks.
