Yeah I saw Nick out there in game one. He played most the season in Chicago so it makes sense. It's really amazing how fast he's become a regular in the pro's. I mean he was with most of EP's class of 2011 just two years ago. Definitely a star in the making.
EP two out of three.

Matt Hendricks and the Washington Capitals will give them a run for their money if they meet in the finals!

Not a surprise really considering he had that one year of seasoning with the Gophers, under the expert tutelage of John Hill! :roll:

Here's the entire list of guys who actually dress:

Jason Blake, Ducks (Moorhead)
Jordan Leopold, Sabres (Golden Valley/U.S. NTDP)*Injured*
Nick Leddy, Blackhawks (Eden Prairie)
Ryan McDonaugh, Rangers (Cretin-Derham Hall)
Mike Sauer, Rangers (St. Cloud Tech)
Derek Stepan, Rangers (Hastings/Shattuck-St. Mary's)
Paul Martin, Penguins (Elk River)
Matt Niskanen, Penguins (Virginia)
Mike Lundin, Lightning (Apple Valley)
Keith Ballard, Canucks (Lake of the Woods)
Matt Hendricks, Capitals (Blaine)

North Dakota has at least one player (Gaustad) and Wisconsin has at least three (Stafford, Suter, etc.) as well. Manitoba is as always, well represented.

I could definitely see an all-Canada final (Vancouver/Montreal).
