    Curious to see which players are starting to break out this year. Of course we have obvious ones like Makar and Q. Hughes, but I'm curious to hear about ones who don't get as much limelight, such as Oliver Bjorkstrand.

    Let's hear em

    Bryan Rust is having an insane year. JT Miller has taken his game to another level this year although he broke out quite a while ago.

    Noel Goal Acciari aiming for Cy Young

    18 goals and two hatters. On pace for 32 goals and 5 helpers. $1.67 million cap hit and hits everything in sight.
    Was mainly a 4C in BOS but now bumped to 2nd line wing with Trocheck and Connolly.

    I'd say Virtanen has been the biggest breakout for the Canucks. He has played well this year and is now getting consistent top 6 minutes and PP time. He is on pace for 47 points, with more the more offensive role he is now playing, I could see him getting 55 by the end of the year.

    Somehow I suspect the Rangers knew Panarin could be a very good player this season...

    Svechnikov obviously. Bjorkstrand, Vrana, Thomas/Gusev to some extent (just not enough ice time yet). Miller is so so so much better than last year. Hronek is actually having an insane year in Detroit if you take into account just how bad detroit has been. Bertuzzi is breaking out too but that's bit less less impressive to me because he plays with some good players.

    For CBJ: Elvis/Korpi could end up having such a year. Bjorkstrand seems to have found a higher gear as well (crossing my fingers).

    My biggest hope for the year was Texier but unfortunately its not going to happen during this season.

    Sean Walker has been a revelation this season. Extremely fast, fluid skater, great offensive instincts, excellent defensive IQ, top pairing guy. Top 60 in points scored by defensemen, top 5 in SAT%, He has often been LA's best player, period. For a guy that looked like an AHL/NHL tweener last season, he's sure been excellent this year.

    Small sample size but Zadina is trending towards a nice first season, if he played 82 this season he'd be at ~25/25. Not breakout, but given the state of the Wings its nice.

    He's looked pretty good when I've seen him.

    Tossing out a vote for John Marino.

    Ethan Bear for the Oilers. Yamamoto had also looked like he is about to break in to the league nicely, albeit a very small sample size at this point.

    Thread screams Jake Virtanen.

    The guy looks completely different this year, not just offensively, but his all around game has been very noticeable.
    He looks like a player who has finally "figured" it out, which is very reassuring.
