2015-16 Upper Deck Contours Hockey is the newest addition to the UD Hockey lineup. Contours has an emphasis on die-cut cards, including die-cut base parallel and memorabilia cards. Every four-pack box will come with one autograph or memorabilia hit per pack plus one numbered parallel or Rookie Resume card per pack.
