Nazem Kadri - Center
The seventh overall pick in the 2009 NHL Draft now looks to be sticking around in the NHL. After a couple of seasons shuffling between the Maple Leafs and their AHL affiliate, Kadri leads the Leafs with 18 points in 21 games and is a huge piece of the puzzle that has Toronto fans talking about the playoffs for the first time since 2004.
