We selected nine up-and-coming dynamic duos from the NHL's top young players, and an odd thing happened when trying to find a cover photo—not a single one of the pairings had been caught on film together.
Not yet anyway.
There was a time when Henrik Zetterberg and Pavel Datsyuk had never been captured out on the ice together. When Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews weren't in every other picture with each other. There was a point when zero photographic evidence of Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin even knowing each other existed.
Now even a quick Google image search will return all the evidence that is needed, but who will the dynamic duos be in the future?
How long until Jaden Schwartz and Vladimir Tarasenko are recognized as the future of the St. Louis Blues? When will Jonathan Huberdeau and Aleksander Barkov begin to fill score sheets together?
For the sake of this slideshow, a prospect is someone who hasn't yet played more than one full season in the NHL. A lot of these guys have carved out roles as professionals, but haven't reached their peak as players.
