2012 - Morgan Rielly. One of this best defenseman in the league today and looks to be a perennial Norris contender. Duncan Keith 2.0. 2013 - Frédérik Gauthier. Top 4th line centre in the league and could fill in as a second line centre on a team like the Habs. 2014 - William Nylander. Elite, dynamic, explosive and one of only less than 75 players in NHL history to have back to back 60 point seasons before the age of 22. 2015 - Mitch Marner. Wow, just wow, best playmaker in the league behind McDavid. 2016 - Auston Matthews. Looking like the best player in the league, best 5v5 scorer in the league by far and is a generational player. 2017 - Timothy Liljegren. Consensus 1st overall pick of his draft class before developing mono and falling to the Leafs. On track towards becoming a top 2 offensive stud much like Erik Karlsson. 2018 - Rasmus Sandin. Still early, but he has looked great in the pre-season and his floor seems to be that of a top 4 defenseman.
