The Upper Deck Company has release its 50-card checklist for 2011-12 Upper Deck Series One. The subset features 49 rookie cards (including many October debuts) and one checklist card. Highlights include top draft picks Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Gabriel Landeskog.

While most of the series is prepared before the start of the NHL season, the Upper Deck Company waits for the first few games before seeking approval on the final segment: the Young Guns rookie checklist. Players must make their NHL debut before any licensed cards can be produced.
