1,000 Point NHL Player Autographs - #21 Luc Robitaille

Luc Robitaille retired in 2006 as the highest scoring left winger in NHL history.

Often remembered as a member of the Los Angeles Kings, over three separate stints, Robitaille went elsewhere to win a Stanley Cup (2001-02 with Detroit) before winning a Cup with Los Angeles in a management position as the President of Business Operations.

The 21st highest scoring player in NHL history with 1,394 points (668 goals, 726 assists) in 1,431 games, Luc Robitaille went from small beginnings as the 171st overall pick in the 1984 NHL Entry Draft to big things. He won the Calder Trophy in 1987, was a multiple All-Star, and a 3-time 50+ goal scorer.

Inducted to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2009, Luc Robitaille was joined by Steve Yzerman, Brian Leetch, and Brett Hull.

As shown by my Luc Robitaille autograph collection, his signature hasn't changed much over the past decade. From 2002-03 In The Game Be A Player Signature comes a hard-signed auto of Luc Robitaille during his time with Detroit. From 2007-08 In The Game Ultimate comes an auto/stick silver /30 of Robitaille and from 2011-12 Panini Limited comes a hard-signed autograph /25 from the Retired Numbers subset.
