The NHL's 2013-14 regular season had its share of highs and lows, triumphs and disappointment, success and heartbreak. It also had its share of surprises, many involving individual players.
Some were rookies who exceeded expectations, dazzling fans with the promise of their skills. Others were young veterans who, after struggling early in their careers, enjoyed long-awaited breakthrough seasons.

A once-unheralded goaltender became a Vezina candidate.
Here's look at every NHL team's most pleasantly surprising players for this season.
