2019-20 Upper Deck Series 2 Hockey takes another crack at NHL cardboard done in the flagship design. While hits aren't found in each box, there is a solid mix of inserts to track down in addition to the new rookies.

Like the Series 1 product in November, Series 2 relies heavily on mainstream hype and the storied line of Young Guns rookie cards.

The ePack version is expected to release around one month after the main set.

Tacking on 250 new cards to the overall flagship checklist, 2019-20 Upper Deck Series 2 Hockey includes 198 base cards, three checklists and 49 Young Guns (1:4).

As many fans know, UD uses Series 2 to clean up the missing names from earlier sets. That's where O-Pee-Chee Update comes into play. Since 2019-20 OPC releases in September, there are many new players to add, especially rookies.
