NHL scouts are charged with finding the most talented players who will eventually develop into superstars who can dominate the league.
What makes a superstar? Players who can make big plays at key moments on a consistent basis.

Steven Stamkos may be one of the most dangerous goal scorers, but he is far from the leading face-off man.
In this piece, we will try to build the perfect hockey player by combining the skills of the best players in the league.
