Evander Kane

LW, Atlanta Thrashers

The broken foot he suffered while blocking a shot last week will sideline him for at least three weeks and put the kibosh on his Calder hopes. Still, the 18-year-old winger has put up an effective rookie campaign that's gone largely unnoticed because he plays in Atlanta. Like Matt Duchene, Kane struggled with the physical transition in the early going, but amped his game as the season progressed. His energy and two-way commitment complement an offensive package that's brought him 14 goals despite limited power play time.
