Big Names, Big Talent: NHL Is Looking Extremely Bright

 

The NHL is rife with upcoming young and amazing talent, but who are today’s top NHL talent. One obvious choice is the Pittsburgh Penguins Sidney Crosby. At the moment, Sid “The Kid” leads the NHL in goals and is second only to 2nd year superstar Connor McDavid in total points scored. Speaking of McDavid, not only does he lead the NHL in points but he is also the assist leader. But being one of the best hockey players doesn’t mean you have to only score or assist on goals, the net minders definitely have their say. Minnesota Wilds Devan Dubnyk leads in both goals against average and save percentage while Sergi Bobrovsky from the Columbus Blue Jackets leads the league in wins.

If you were to look at another sport, America’s Pastime, baseball is also littered with amazing talent. From the best MLB players like pitchers to position players to fielders who can pick it, the list can be long. But who are the few? From sheer hitting perspective, the American League and Houston Astros’ Jose Altuve stands at the top. His .338 average lead the AL last season. On the Senior Circuit, the Colorado Rockies DJ LeMahieu led the league with a .348 average. You can’t talk about pitching without the big names; Max Scherzer, Jon Lester and Kyle Hendricks on the NL side with Corey Kluber, Rick Porcello and Chris Sale on the AL side.

These are but a few leaders who continue to make their mark in their respective sport.  While they may not have the cardio of a soccer player, they definitely are impressive physical athletes.
