Derek Forbort, Defense, Los Angeles Kings: Forbort is a roller coaster to watch. He’s so gifted, as the skating and puck skills abilities are simply tremendous for a big man and he can create “wow” moments on any given shift. His defensive work showed spurts of fine performance as well. However, the hockey sense still has a ways to go, as for every great play he made, it was coupled with a bad one.
Rocco Grimaldi, Center, Florida Panthers: Grimaldi was his standard self: plus skater, plus offensive skills, great work ethic, went to the net for chances, and good two-way play.
