If you are a fan of junior hockey and you are a card collector, Upper Deck has just released a box set of Canadian Hockey League players.
If you get your hands on those cards and look carefully, you will see several of the WHL players in the set had their picture taken in Regina by Pats photographer Keith Hershmiller.
Hershmiller was contacted by Upper Deck to get some Pats players like Sam Steel and Josh Mahura this year, but the request turned to include many visiting players who showed up at the Brandt Centre like Jayden Halbegewachs of the Moose Jaw Warriors and Swift Current Bronco Tyler Steenburgen.
Hershmiller is honoured to have his pictures and name on the card set. He doesn’t know if it will mean increased business for KH Photo, but he says that doesn’t really matter.
“I’m not quite sure. I guess time will tell.” Hershmiller admits. “I think its more of a personal pride thing for me. If I get more business because of this than great because I won’t be complaining, but if I don’t, its no big deal either
Hershmiller says it isn’t easy shooting a hockey game as while you do capture many moments, you miss many as well because of the speed of the game.
