I have seen the future of hockey, and surprisingly all the names remain the same.
We are starting to witness an influx of young up-and-coming prospects that have famous fathers.
Each is looking to carve his path in the NHL and represent the name on the back of the jersey as much as the logo on the front.
We have seen some great father and son duos over the years, from Gordie and Mark Howe to Bobby and Brett Hull, but now the numbers look to be increasing.
Already in the NHL we have Mike Foligno's son Nick playing with the Ottawa Senators, Dave Gagner's son Sam in Edmonton with the Oilers, Bob Nystrom's son Eric with the Calgary Flames, and the list goes on and on.
Now there is a plethora of young stars that will soon be arriving in the NHL that are made from the gene pool of former players.
Makes sense, right?
They have been raised around the game and have the experts at their disposal when it comes to asking questions about what it takes to be a pro.
On that note, I decided to look at some future superstars that have the bloodlines to prove it.
You may not have heard of some of these young men yet, but you soon will.
