90/91 Score Young Superstars # 2

# 2 Brian Leetch

Young--22 years old  

Superstar--an exceptional talent, widely recognized and eagerly sought after for their services

Regular season
GP 1205  G 247  A  781  Pts 1028 PIM 571 

GP 95    G  28   A  69     Pts. 97     PIM  36

Played in NHL All-Star Game 1990 1991 1992 1994 1996 1997 1998 2001 2002 2003

Stanley Cup 1994

Inducted into Hockey Hall of Fame 2009

Already with 3 years in the league, he's still young in my books. Along with the achievements listed above, he won the Norris twice, Smythe and Calder once each. He won an Olympic silver medal, a gold at the 1996 World Cup of Hockey and the 1994 Stanley Cup. Inducted into the U.S. and HHOF. Quite a list which were well deserved.

The key to his game was his mobility and vision. He was a terrific skater and stickhandler, sidestepping the forechecker and making the breakout pass. Overcame his smallish size with timing and positioning and could be physical when required.

 1994 Game 7 Goal

My consensus,

Young and a superstar.

So far, Score is 1/2.
