The dean of the Minnesota Wild, Nick Schultz has been with the team since he was a 19 year old rookie during the Wild's second season (2001-02). He has been a steady, puck-moving defender for a decade now, and doesn't appear to be leaving anytime soon -- he's signed through the 2013-14 season. I am disappointed that he swapped out the 2008-09 OPC 1979 Retro card I sent for a 2007-08 OPC card. If you read this blog with regularity, you know that I'm actively collecting the '79 cards. Guess I'll try again next year. Thanks for the autographs, though, Nick!
