As a member of the Pitt Penguins, this is Goligoski’s second year in a row he will be fighting for the cup. Leopold, a Penguin player, used to be with the Florida Panthers until he was traded halfway through the season. Vanek is a lead player for the Sabres in goals this season, even though he missed out on eleven games for injuries. Wheeler is also a former Gopher player, and currently plays for the Boston Bruins as the third ranked scorer for the team. Paul Martin, a New Jersey Devil, and Ryan Stoa, a Colorado Avalanch player, have also earned their spot on their team’s playoff lineup.
