With the 2012-13 NHL season cut short by the lock-out, Upper Deck and Panini decided to not release rookie cards for all players who debuted in 2012-13. That strategy resulted in the ‘Double Rookie Class’ for 2013-14. Similar to 2005-06, if you’re a rookie card collector, this is the season for you.
