Crosby, Ovechkin, Phaneuf, Richards, Carter…
These are the names we’ve heard over and over again this season. Who will wind up the Calder Trophy winner? Well how about the leading rookie scorer in the Western Conference? Who’s that? you ask. Well that’s Marek Svatos. Just 8 points behind Sidney Crosby and a single goal behind roakie leader Alexander Ovechkin, Marek’s 26 goals and 40 points would be sensational in any other year. And he comes to the Wachovia Center tomorrow. So be sure to check him out as the NHL debuts on NBC.
