MONTREAL - From Gretzky to Crosby, and Lemieux to Lafleur, every player has envied at least one aspect of another player's game over the course of their career. With that in mind, we asked prospect Cole Caufield to build his Ultimate Player based on a list of several highly-coveted hockey-related characteristics.

HANDS: PATRICK KANE

I think everyone would agree with me.

STRENGTH: ZDENO CHARA

He's huge and his off-ice training is incredible.

VISION: SIDNEY CROSBY

He's always able to find his teammates on the ice.

HEART: BRENDAN GALLAGHER 

Go Habs Go!

SHOT: ALEX OVECHKIN

No doubt about this one.

SPEED: CONNOR MCDAVID

He flies on his skates.
