In The Game Announces New Signings for Between The Pipes
The release of In The Game's annual Between The Pipes is still a few short months away, but the company is hard at work creating one of their most fan-friendly efforts to date.
"I have been informally polling collectors online as to what they would like to see in the 2010-11 edition of Between The Pipes," said In The Game's President, Dr. Brian Price. "They have come up with some amazing ideas that we are looking to bring to life and they have also suggested many players that we are diligently trying to sign."
As a result of this collector-focused communication, In The Game is pleased to announce the signing of Tom Fenton, a name that many hockey fans will recognize after his recent appearance as a backup netminder for the Phoenix Coyotes.
On December 16, 2010, he was signed to a one-day amateur contract after Ilya Bryzgalov fell ill and was unable to play in a game against the New York Rangers. There was no time to call up a prospect from their farm team, so Fenton was able to sit on an NHL bench for the first time.
Soon after his historic game, Fenton agreed to a deal with In The Game. The 2010-11 Between The Pipes base set will include the first card of Fenton and collectors will also have the rare opportunity to find autographed cards from him in packs.
"As soon as Fenton sat on the bench for Phoenix, collectors were asking us if we were going include him in Between The Pipes," said Price. "Naturally, we set out to do everything we could to get him to sign a deal with us and we are pleased to have him be a part of this set. You're not going to see him in any other products this season, so it was important that we do our best to bring his cards to collectors."
A native of Sarnia, Ontario, Fenton previously played for American International College Yellow Jackets from 2005-06 to 2008-09 and presently serves as the Head of Game Operations and Community Relations at Manhattanville College.
In The Game has also signed agreements with some of the greatest women to ever protect the net for Canada at the international level. Manon Rheaume, Charline Labonte, Kim St-Pierre and Sami-Jo Small will all have base, autograph and game-used memorabilia cards in Between The Pipes this season.
"We have worked with all four of these women in previous releases and collectors still can't get enough of their cards," said Price. "All of them have been champions and have represented Canada with pride at numerous tournaments and we are proud to provide collectors with an opportunity to obtain new cards of them."
The 200-card Between The Pipes base set will once again include some of the biggest young stars from the Canadian Hockey League and American Hockey League along with many current and retired goaltenders - many of which are fan or cult favorites.
"Our mission with many of our products this season has been to include players that rarely appear on cards these days," said Price. "I think that fans of the game's grand history will enjoy what they see in Between The Pipes."
