Asian Hockey Card Collection

Next on tap is a revision to one of my first posts for So Cal legend Alex Kim - @alexmkim79  

1. Alex was a dynamic and fluid skating Korean American center from Fullerton, California. He started playing the game after a hockey director at a local rink spotted Alex while his sister was taking figure skating lessons. 

2. He played two seasons of juniors with the @bucshockey scoring at over a point a game pace (109 points in 107 games). 

3. He brought his scoring prowess to the @ncaaicehockey level in suiting up for 2 seasons with @miamiuniversity and 2 with @coloradocollegetigerhockey, notching 119 points in 151 college games. 

4. Alex then played several years in the North American minor leagues (stops with the @idahosteelheads, @readingroyals, @sdgullsahl, @rockfordicehogs, @bakersfieldcondors, and Peoria Rivermen) and was invited to participate in many @nhl development and training camps. 

5. He later went to Korea, where he was the first player of Korean descent to lead the Asia league in scoring during his first year (07-08) and won an Asia League championship with @anyanghalla in 2010-11. Since retiring from professional hockey in 2011, Alex has been a fixture in So Cal hockey and continues to coach for the Junior Ducks organization, serves as a mentor for young athletes, and has trained several high profile players of Asian descent, including @jasonrob19, @nickrobertson01, @josh_groll, @chad27sasaki, Patrick Choi, James Hong, @ethan_wolthers, and @mvttykim.
