1 Player Who Is the Future of Each NHL Team

The Minnesota Wild made headlines in the offseason with free-agent signings, but Mikael Granlund represents the future of the franchise.

We have an optimistic nature at Bleacher Report.

These are dark days in the NHL with a lockout preventing players from participating in training camp and the league getting ready to cancel regular-season games.

But we retain hope that both sides will negotiate in earnest and that the regular season will take shape. 

Then we will get on with the business of hockey and be able to watch many seasons without interruption.

Once that happens, we will get a chance to see the development of many young players who will become stars. Here's a look at one player from each team who will likely be the face of that franchise in the future.

Many thanks to HockeysFuture.com for help with the overall analysis of these outstanding prospects.
