Having the chance to win the most coveted prize in hockey is huge; now imagine having that happen during your first year in the league. Only a few months ago, these players were at the top of the boards in the AHL and now they are playing alongside-- or against-- elite players they once idolized.
Here are the rookies to watch in the Stanley Cup Final:
*Guentzel leads the league in goals and rookies in all scoring categories.
*Aberg's first goal of the postseason was the game-winning goal vs. Anaheim in Game 5, the turning point for Nashville.
*Gaudreau's face off percentage in the playoffs is 56.5%.
Note: Stats are from before Game 1 of the Final.
One century of this game and League is a wonderful milestone to celebrate. Let's hope to do this in the next century!
