David Ayres now has his own official trading card.

The 42-year-old Zamboni driver turned emergency goaltender for the Carolina Hurricanes is featured in the latest pack of Upper Deck's 2019-20 Game Dated Moments cards, available through the company's e-Pack platform.

Since Ayres isn't a member of the NHL Players' Association, a special deal was reached between him and Upper Deck to produce the card, according to Ryan Cracknell of Beckett. Upper Deck is also creating a rookie card for him.

Ayres, a Zamboni driver with the Toronto Marlies, entered Saturday's game for the Hurricanes against the Maple Leafs after goalies James Reimer and Petr Mrazek both suffered injuries. Carolina won the game 6-3.
