No matter what level of hockey is played, the playoffs prove which players come to play and which players are going to pull their best cameo appearance.
Nathan MacKinnon came to play and came to win in the Memorial Cup Championships, putting up 13 points in just four games.
While one could argue that because the Mooseheads were such a talented team this past season—with what could be two of the top three draft picks in Nathan MacKinnon and Jonathan Drouin—the fact remains that someone needed to "drive the bus" offensively for the Mooseheads.
MacKinnon was that player for Halifax in the Memorial Cup, chiming in on 13 of their 24 goals in the tournament.
While MacKinnon would have been the No. 2-ranked player in the North American part of Central Scouting's rankings, he cemented his place even more with his showing in the Memorial Cup.
