Some, including Don Cherry, are calling the 2015 NHL® Draft Class the best in years! There are once-in-a-generation caliber players in this draft like Connor McDavid, Jack Eichel, Noah Hanifin, Dylan Strome and more! It is only natural that puck fans will want to be on site in Sunrise, Florida when it all goes down on Friday, June 26 and Saturday, June 27. Upper Deck had big things in store for fans and draft picks alike at the BB&T Center!
We will kick the festivities off by hosting a Silver Celebration party at a shop in Tamarac, Florida for a special evening with their collectors.
On Thursday, June 25, Upper Deck will visit Scott’s Sports Cards from 6:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m. There will be complimentary refreshments, free pack wars and an incredible raffle based on Upper Deck purchases from that day where fans can score Upper Deck apparel, sealed product, insert cards and signed memorabilia including a Wayne Gretzky autographed blow-up! This will be evening you won’t want to miss!
