Some of my favorite cards that I have created for this project capture a specific, iconic moment in Minnesota sports.  This particular card of former Gophers hockey standout Justin Holl is a perfect example.

Holl was an outstanding defense-first blueliner for four years at the University of Minnesota.  His signature moment, though, was this miraculous short-handed goal in the Frozen Four, against arch-rival North Dakota, with less than one second remaining in regulation, to send the Gophers to the NCAA championship game.

The goal will forever be remembered as one of the biggest in the history of the storied program.  As for Holl, he is now playing professionally for the Indy Fuel - the ECHL affiliate of the Chicago Blackhawks.
