And the Newest 2/14 Hockey Guy is...

Nikolaj Ehlers!
All of his cards from ITG list his birthday as 2-13-1996, but this card, as well as the first 6 links to him that come up on googling list him as 2-14-1996. That's enough for me to welcome him to the binders! He'll also tie Ryan MacInnis as the youngest person in the collection - both born the exact same date. However, Nikolaj was born in Denmark, and Ryan was born in St. Louis. So, time zones might make Ehlers slightly older, but I'm not going to get that detailed in my research.

He was a first round pick of the Jets, 9th overall, in the 2014 draft. Best of all, I can now add a Halifax Mooseheads jersey to the binder. This one might qualify as an oddball. The Post logo in the bottom right gives away that this came free in a box of cereal.
And here's the back, in all its bilingual glory.
