NHL Players Cool with Sharpies

They’ll sign anything for anybody.

Well, almost anything.


No matter if it’s dealing with the media or interacting with fans, the general notion is that hockey players are about the most down-to-earth and cooperative pro athletes you’ll find.

Usually honest–sometimes brutally so–they’re easy to like. When it comes to signing autographs, most players are more than willing to pick up the Sharpie and go at it, although they admit that the increasing number of signature requests is hurting the quality.

Collectors and dealers are looking to have collectible type items signed. Other fans are a little more creative, according to a story by CanWest news service.
