Another JM autograph...Jamie McBain that is.

Currently with the Carolina Hurricanes.

Acquired in-person October 26, 2011.

Some Hurricanes fans (specifically the guys from Canes Country), thought that McBain, who garnered 10 points in 14 games in his first taste of NHL service, would be a candidate for the Calder Trophy in his first full NHL season.  Although he did notch seven goals and 23 assists in 76 NHL games in 2010-11, his minus-eight rating didn't let him come close to being nominated.  Of course, then again, he would have had to put up Jeff Skinner numbers in points and be about a plus-five at worst in order to beat out his teammate (Okay, not 60 points...maybe 40).
