The two rookies, particularly winger Marchand, made their presence felt during Boston's march to its first Stanley Cup since 1972. The feisty Marchand, who scored 11 goals in 25 postseason games, proved to be a major irritant to the Vancouver Canucks in the Cup final. Center Seguin, the second pick in the 2010 NHL draft, blossomed with the start of the 2011-12 season, scoring 14 goals and 31 points in his first 32 games while going plus-26. Marchand, who started plus-25, earned the league's First Star honors for the week ending Dec. 25 by scoring four goals to up his team-leading total to 15.
