1,000 Point NHL Player Autographs - #44 Vincent Damphousse

A good player for a long time, Vincent Damphousse is a rare player who excelled with both the Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadiens during his tenure in the NHL. Although he also spent time in Edmonton and San Jose, Damphouuse will mostly be remembered during his time with the two central Canadian rivals.

Scoring 1,205 points (432 goals, 773 assists) in 1,378 games, many people would be surprised to know that Damphousse is the 44th highest scorer in NHL history. Although he never scored 50 goals or 100 points in a season, he passed the 90 point plateau four times in his career.

A potential Hall of Famer in the future, Damphousse will be held back by his lack of individual accomplishments, although he was a key member of the Montreal Canadiens most recent Stanley Cup Championship in 1993.

From 1998-99 In The Game Be A Player comes these two hard-signed autographed cards of Vincent Damphousse in the bleu-blanc-et-rouge of the Montreal Canadiens. These cards come near the end of his career with the Canadiens during the time when he served as team captain.
