Upper Deck reveals first players on redemption checklist for 15-16 Artifacts

The rookie redemptions in 2015-16 Upper Deck Artifacts Hockey have already been generating plenty of buzz in the hobby. With the most promising NHL rookie class in a decade, collectors have been eager to snatch up boxes of Artifacts to find redemptions card for the teams that have the hottest prospects.

Upper Deck announced late Thursday the first batch of confirmed players that will have cards printed for the specific team redemption cards in Artifacts. UD also confirmed that roman numeral I redemptions will be good for a card featuring number one overall draft pick, Connor McDavid.

Here’s the redemption checklist, including the players that have been confirmed:

RED-181 Montreal Canadiens
RED-182 St. Louis Blues (Robby Fabbri)
RED-183 New York Rangers (Oscar Lindberg)
RED-184 Anaheim Ducks
RED-185 Tampa Bay Lightning
RED-186 Nashville Predators
RED-187 Washington Capitals
RED-188 Vancouver Canucks (Jake Virtanen)
RED-189 Detroit Red Wings (Dylan Larkin)
RED-190 Chicago Blackhawks (Artemi Panarin)
RED-191 New York Islanders
RED-192 Calgary Flames
RED-193 Ottawa Senators
RED-194 Minnesota Wild
RED-195 Pittsburgh Penguins (Daniel Sprong)
RED-196 Los Angeles Kings
RED-197 Boston Bruins
RED-198 Winnipeg Jets (Nikolaj Ehlers)
RED-199 Columbus Blue Jackets

RED-201 Dallas Stars
RED-202 Toronto Maple Leafs
RED-203 Colorado Avalanche (Mikko Rantanen)
RED-204 Philadelphia Flyers
RED-205 Edmonton Oilers (Connor McDavid)
RED-206 Buffalo Sabres (Jack Eichel)
RED-207 Arizona Coyotoes (Max Domi)
RED-208 New Jersey Devils
RED-209 Florida Panthers
RED-210 Carolina Hurricanes (Noah Hanifin)
RED-211 Wild Card

RED-213 Wild Card
RED-214 Wild Card
RED-215 Wild Card
RED-216 Wild Card
RED-217 Wild Card
RED-218 Wild Card
RED-219 Wild Card
RED-220 Wild Card

The two most obvious names on that list are McDavid and Sabres rookie, Jack Eichel. These are the two biggest names in this year’s crop of rookies. They are joined by the player that came after them in the 2015 draft, Carolina’s Noah Hanafin. Russian Artemi Panarin is generating some excitement with the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks. He might have the best shot at upsetting McDavid or Eichel as the Calder Trophy winner this year as the league’s top rookie. Max Domi, Dylan Larkin and Daniel Sprong should also be popular with hockey rookie collectors.
