TTM Success! Jaroslav Halak!

Who? St Louis Blues goalie Jaroslav Halak.

I wrote to both Blues goaltenders during training camp at the start of this season. Halak returned his in about six weeks. Their other goalie, Brian Elliott, I'm still waiting for. *fingers crossed*

Jaro is having his best season of his brief career this year. Regaining the form of his playoff drive with Montreal a couple of seasons ago, Jaro is 25-11-7 with a 1.92 GAA and 6 shutouts so far this year. He will certainly be in the Vezina conversation at the season's end. He and Elliott will definitely win the Bill Jennings Award for best team goaltending.

Jaro signed both of the 8x10`s I sent him....

 Great artwork of Jacques Plante on the side of his mask....

But he did not sign the card I sent him. 2/3 ain`t bad folks.

Thanks Jaro!! and good luck in the playoffs!


  1. Very cool. I remember his big playoff run a couple of years ago, especially when they knocked the Pens out (grrrrrr). I was a little surprised when they let him go, but it's great to see he's still finding success. So many goaltenders fall off the face of the earth when situations like that happen. Very cool for you to get the 8x10s. They look great.

  2. Liuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut!

    Love that Halak mask.

    Great TTM.

  3. Are these pictures you took or purchased? I have some awesome pictures I have taken of him from camp and games and would love to have him sign one.

    1. Jen,
      I hope you send him your pics as I did. He's really great about signing his fan mail.
      Good luck and let me know how it turns out.

    2. Hello!

      So, I sent him two of my pictures that I took during training camp, and received them both back signed! Super cool. :)

  4. BTW- he will sign cards. I sent him one and he returned it signed. Maybe he got confused. LOL
