About Stamp

Canada Post is pleased to bring fans and collectors the fourth NHL All-Stars souvenir sheet of six domestic rate ($0.48) stamps. Commemorating the 2003 All-Star Game and events on February 1-2, 2003 in Florida, this set features six legendary hockey players: Bill Durnan, Raymond Bourque, Serge Savard, Stan Mikita, Mike Bossy, and Frank Mahovlich.

Frank Mahovlich
Six-time Stanley Cup champion Frank Mahovlich was hailed as a future superstar while still in junior hockey. He joined the Toronto Maple Leafs full time in 1957-58 and beat Bobby Hull to win the Calder Trophy for rookie of the year. Mahovlich was one of the greatest goal scorers in hockey, leading the Leafs in scoring every season between 1960-61 and 1965-66. He was the main offensive weapon on Leaf teams that won the Stanley Cup in '62, '63, '64 and '67, and he was named to either the First or the Second NHL All-Star Team a total of nine times. In March of 1968, Mahovlich was traded to the Detroit Red Wings, with whom he established his career high of 49 goals in 1968-69. Come 1971, he was traded to the Montréal Canadiens, where he was a key part of two Stanley Cup wins. Mahovlich was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1981.

About the Stamps' Design
The 2003 NHL All-Stars stamp set was designed by Stéphane Huot of Montréal, assisted by illustrator Charles Vinh and computer artist Pierre Rousseau. As with previous NHL stamp sheets, each player is shown in an action shot and in a formal portrait as part of the selvedge. New this year, we have produced a self-adhesive booklet panel of 6 designs.
