Upper Deck announced today that they have signed Brayden Yager to a multi-year card and autograph deal. The 19-year-old American forward is ranked 13th among North American skaters in the NHL Central Scouting final rankings, and is expected to be selected in this year's draft. This news comes as exciting news for hockey fans, as it signals an important step forward in Yager's career.


Yager has had quite an impressive season, having earned 32 points (17 goals, 15 assists) in 45 games with the USHL’s Sioux City Musketeers. His impressive performance earned him a spot on the USHL’s All-Rookie Team and was also named to their All-Star Classic. According to reports from NHL Central Scouting, Yager has “exceptional puck skills and excellent vision when distributing the puck” which makes him one of the most promising prospects in the upcoming draft.

Upper Deck is known for signing some of hockey's biggest stars—including Connor McDavid, Jack Eichel, Auston Matthews and Patrik Laine—so it come as no surprise that they have chosen to sign Yager as well. This agreement will guarantee that collectors will get access to exclusive cards bearing Yager's name and likeness over the course of his career. Additionally, Upper Deck has also committed to having some of its biggest stars—like Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin—sign autographs which will include Yager's name.


It looks like Brayden Yager is going places! With Upper Deck now officially on board, this rising star is sure to get plenty of attention from hockey fans who are looking for more memorabilia featuring his name and likeness. And with Upper Deck promising autographs from some of hockey's brightest stars too, it looks like this deal could be a win-win situation for everyone involved! It's definitely something worth keeping an eye on as we all await the 2021 NHL Draft!
