from John Kreiser of NHL.com,
Here is a look at seven players who will try to replicate their surprising showings from last season:
Bryan Bickell, Chicago Blackhawks: Bickell was every bit as surprising during the Stanley Cup Playoffs as Bobrovsky was during the regular season. After scoring nine goals in 48 regular-season games for the Chicago Blackhawks, he matched that total in 25 games during the playoffs. The last one came with 1:16 left in regulation of Game 6 in the Final and tied the score 2-2; Dave Bolland's goal 17 seconds later gave the Blackhawks the Cup. The Blackhawks made a long-term commitment to Bickell this summer; now he has to prove he's ready to step into a more substantial role.
Sergei Bobrovsky, Columbus Blue Jackets:The goaltender known in Columbus as "Bob" faces an enormous task this season as he tries to live up to coming out of nowhere to win the Vezina Trophy as the top goaltender in the NHL.
