#BlackhawksLegend Eric Semborski Gets A Rookie Card

On Saturday afternoon, the Blackhawks desperately needed a backup goaltender.

On Wednesday, Eric Semborski got a rookie card.

When Corey Crawford needed an emergency appendectomy and couldn’t play against the Flyers, the Blackhawks signed former Temple (club) goaltender Semborski to a one-day amateur contract. He sat on the bench, had his picture taken by fans through the glass, and smiled the whole time.

On Wednesday, Topps introduced two digital cards with Semborski on them.
