5. Tyler Seguin

It has been a fair while since we’ve seen a player’s career ramp up as dramatically as Tyler Seguin‘s seems to every year. After putting up 22 points in his rookie year (on a deep Boston Bruins squad that gave him limited opportunities), Seguin proceeded to triple that number the following season with a 67 point performance.

Though he played at a similar pace during the lockout year, the Bruins shipped Seguin off to Dallas (perhaps the most misguided trade of this decade), allowing the talented, young forward to return to his natural position of centre, partner with powerhouse scorer Jamie Benn, and put up a monster 84-point season in his first year wearing green and white.

At only 22 years old, the ceiling is limitless for this kid. He’s got quick feet, fantastic hands, a dangerous shot, and seems to get noticeably stronger and faster every summer. As Seguin’s and Benn’s chemistry continues to develop, alongside an offense that has seen a dramatic upgrade this summer in the form of Jason Spezza and Ales Hemsky, Seguin could be set to surprise the NHL with a coup for the scoring crown.
