The Los Angeles Kings were the story of the 2011-12 NHL season. The team came from seemingly nowhere as the 8th seed in the Western Conference Playoffs and went on to win the Stanley Cup. Gabriel Landeskog was named Rookie of the Year.
In their second season, Panini’s hockey products received higher marks but still trail behind Upper Deck. Due to exclusives in basketball and baseball, only football cards offer more official collecting options for consumers than hockey.
While the draft class is not as deep as 2010-11, the 2011-12 hockey card sets feature another solid rookie group. Top rookie cards include Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Gabriel Landeskog, Cody Hodgson, Louis Leblanc, Mark Scheifele, and Adam Henrique.
