The New Shop NHL Catalog

I just got their catalog in the mail the other day.

On the back cover is some dude in a Flyers jersey with his back turned and he's standing inbetween two other guys that are in Av's jerseys.
The catch. My real last name is on the back of the Flyers jersey and I'm a Flyers fan. It's obvious that they used a printer and just printed the last name on the catalog in the right place to have it show up on the jersey.

But what I don't know is if the Flyers jersey is just a coincidence. I might have told NHL.COM that I was a Flyers fan at some point. I mean, hell. I don't even know how they get my address to send me a catalog.

So, I'm sure some of you also got the same catalog and aren't Flyers fan (don't ask me why you aren't, getting past the 1st Rnd is overrated) and what I want to know was the Flyers jersey on your back cover too?

Yes, I got the catalog and the guy was in a Flyers jersey with my last name, and I'm a Flyers fan so I thought they might have set that up also, but it's probably for all catalogs.

You guys signed up for the mail order catalog right? When they ask for your address, they also ask for your favorite team as well.

So I should be expecting the catalog soon w/ my name on an Avs jersey

It's the same on all catalouges. I'm sorry, but seeing my last name on a Flyers jersey wasn't exactly the most thrilling thing for me to see!

Me either!

The nice pic of Khabibulin on the inside flap more than made it up for me, though.

Same thing here. When I first noticed it(a parting glance) I kind of freaked out. I was like, what the heck? There is a player in the league with my last name!?!? Good work NHL.com you tricked me

NFL.Com's Catalog actually sends you a team catalog, with your name on your teams jersey on the cover. Also, the merchandise shown is primarily of your team. I was hoping NHL.com would do the same.
