If Eberle was something of a hidden gem when the Edmonton Oilers selected him in the first round (No. 22) in the 2008 NHL Draft, his offensive flair has been on full display at many levels of the game since then.
The slick, 5-foot-11, 181-pound right wing had his coming-out party at the 2009 World Junior Championship, helping Canada win a gold medal. In 2010, Eberle played in both the World Junior Championship and the World Hockey Championship, and the Regina, Saskatchewan, native became a seasoned international player before ever appearing in an NHL game. He was named both tournament MVP and best forward at the 2010 World Junior Championship, helping Canada win a silver medal.
