Remember this name: Brett Connolly.
The 20-year-old right wing has raised eyebrows with his first-place Syracuse Crunch, taking the American Hockey League by storm and distinguishing himself as one to watch.
His season would be a great start for a young player looking to work his way to the NHL, but for Connolly, the route has been a little more circuitous.
Selected by Tampa Bay with the sixth pick of the 2010 NHL Draft, the Campbell River, British Columbia native made the leap straight from juniors to the NHL last season. He appeared in 68 games with the Lightning, scoring four goals with 11 assists.
"I learned a lot last year and it was a lot of fun," Connolly said of sharing time with Steven Stamkos, Martin St. Louis and Vincent Lecavalier. "Whenever someone gets to play in the NHL, it's a great accomplishment and a great experience. It was a very good year."
