Victor Hedman surprised everyone with a phenomenal fantasy performance last season as he posted 55 points, 53 penalty minutes and a +5 rating in 75 games for the Lightning.
It took five seasons for the 23 year-old, former second overall draft pick to find his offensive form in the NHL, but Tampa Bay can be assured that it was worth the wait. If Hedman can replicate and even improve his performance this coming season, he'll have established himself as an elite blueliner for years to come. Although his stats were promising, one productive season does not make a player a lock to continue producing high numbers. Hedman is an all-around player however, and will log big minutes in all situations for the Bolts. Consistency is the next challenge to conquer for the immensely talented Swede. Aug 30 - 8:55 PM
