Chicken Scratch

Markus Naslund. This Swedish born hockey player was drafted by the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1991 and played for 3 seasons in Pittsburgh. Markus then played for the Vancouver Canucks for 12 years and then spent a season with the New York Rangers and retired in May 2009 after 16 seasons in the NHL. He is the Vancouver Canucks Franchise leader in goals and points scored. He was also a member of the "West Coast Express" (fellow NHLers and Canadians will know who that was).

While his talents on the ice proved to be excellent, his skills with a pen seem to be a slap shot boinking off of the goal post. I don't know if he received to many concussions or if he was "checked" into the boards too many times but that signature does not look like a goal buzzer beater to me.
