If you had asked somebody who Sergei Bobrovsky was prior to the 2010-11 NHL season, you could have received any answer, ranging from politician to Russian historical figure. Since then, Bobrovsky has become a top-level goaltender in the NHL and nearly made himself a household name.
He came out of nowhere to take the starting goaltender job in Philadelphia from the Stanley-Cup-winning Michael Leighton.
"Bob" has posted 23 wins and seven losses so far this year, as well as a .918 save percentage and a 2.48 goals against average.
It will be interesting to see if he can keep this pace up for the remainder of the season.
