Yeah, I’ve been going crazy with the upgraded card purchases, and here’s a beauty patch from another Asian player I followed growing up, Devin Setoguchi @dsetoguchi10 -
1. Devin was a speedy, Japanese Canadian sniper from Taber, Alberta.
2. He torched the @westernhockeyleague from 2003-06, recording 243 points in 255 games for the @bladeshockeyofficial.
3. His tremendous skills compelled the @sanjosesharks to select him 8th overall in the 2005 @nhl Entry Draft. The Sharks wanted him so badly, they moved up 4 spots to acquire him and passed on other great stars like @anzekopitar and @tjoshie7. 3. Devin enjoyed a distinguished pro career with 9 seasons in the Show for the Sharks, @minnesotawild, @nhljets, @nhlflames, and @lakings. Over 516 games, he notched 261 points.
4. Seto is a true success story as he overcame alcohol abuse, which he publicly revealed after signing with the Kings.
5. He’s related to former @uofnorthdakota star, Jordan Kawaguchi (@jordankawaguchi29), who is currently with the @txstarshockey (and whose card I’m eagerly awaiting!). Seto is now a personal trainer and owns @f45_training_willowgleneast.
On a personal note, I remember watching him and hearing comparisons to @pavelbureofficial, which were not too far off. I was equally ecstatic when my hometown Kings signed him, although his tenure was short lived. I wish him the best of luck on his new endeavors!
