Keith Tkachuk

Retired 500-Goal Scorer.
Fan letter sent May 18, 2011.
3/3 autographed cards received August 9, 2011.

Tkachuk retired after the 2009-10 NHL season with 538 goals and 1,065 points in 1,201 games played.  He started out with the Jets/Coyotes organization before being traded to the St. Louis Blues in 2001 and although he played for the Atlanta Thrashers for 18 regular season and four post-season games in 2007, he went back to the Blues the very next season and ended his career in St. Louis.  Letter and cards were sent to his home address.  I only have autographs of five of the 41 500-goal scorers now (Gretzky, Messier, Richard, Sakic, and now Tkachuk) but I'm hoping to add to that collection in the near future (I have letters out to Jaromir Jagr, Mats Sundin, and Mark Recchi so far with no response as of yet; Jagr I believe is my second try, this time to a different address than the first).
