The Ottawa Senators first rounder has played just parts of two seasons in the NHL but has already started to show justification of his sixth overall selection. The Huddinge, SWE product has seven goals and 21 points in 51 career games with the Senators, but perhaps his biggest contribution came at the 2012 World Junior Championship.
