Can’t leave off the rookie who is leading all rookies in playoff scoring. Toffoli has had a solid season with the Kings and now has racked up 13 points in 23 playoff games and still has at least 2 more games to add to that total. He plays a gritty game which fits perfectly with the Kings style, he can burn you on the scoresheet or the boards.

While he’s a long shot, there is a chance that Tyler Toffoli could skate away with the Conn Smythe trophy when the NHL playoffs are all over. He even netted the overtime winner against the Blackhawks in game 7. Talk about clutch!
