Tokarski was pretty good, right?

Yeah, he was pretty good for the Chiefs, bringing a Memorial Cup to Spokane. He's now doing some business for his NHL team, the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Tokarski, 20, is generally regarded as the Lightning’s top prospect in the their minor league system, despite being a late fifth-round draft pick, 122nd overall, in 2008. He has known hockey all his life, but did not seriously consider mastering the position of goaltender until he was 13-years-old, just four years before making his junior league debut in net for the Spokane Chiefs of the Western Hockey League. Yet, from an outsider’s viewpoint, consideration of his late decision to man the crease followed by early success only compliments his growing, yet already impressive resume.

Just remember, Tokarski saves.
