NHL Rising Stars: Top 10 Late Bloomers

1: Kris Letang

Topping the list is youngster Kris Letang.

When I included Alex Goligoski on my lists of top rising stars, many people asked about Letang. Ask no more as he is easily one of the best things about the Penguins lineup. Letang is currently the league's highest-scoring defenseman with 17 points in 19 games.

It seems like Goligoski wasn't the only player to benefit from Sergei Gonchar's departure. Pittsburgh saved a bunch of cash that was better spent elsewhere.

Letang is finally living up to his potential and should be a mainstay on the Pens back end for years to come.
