Adam Larsson was drafted fourth overall by the New Jersey Devils in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. Larsson began his NHL journey with the Devils (2011-2016), then moved to the Edmonton Oilers (2016-2021), and currently plays for the Seattle Kraken, joining them in 2021.
Larsson represented Sweden internationally, earning a gold medal at the 2018 World Championships, a bronze medal at the 2010 World Junior Championships, and a silver medal at the 2010 World U18 Championships. At the 2010 World U18 Championships, he was named the best defenseman of the tournament.
Larsson also set franchise records with the Seattle Kraken, including scoring the first overtime game-winning goal in franchise history and tying for the longest points streak in franchise history. During the 2022-2023 season, he achieved a career milestone by exceeding the 30-point mark for the first time, recording eight goals and 25 assists.
Drafted first overall by the Edmonton Oilers in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, Taylor Hall quickly made an impact, becoming a central figure in the Oilers’ young core. Despite his individual successes and point production in Edmonton, the team struggled to make a significant playoff run during his tenure there.
In 2016, in a move that surprised many, Hall was traded to the New Jersey Devils. It was with the Devils that he had his most successful individual season to date. In the 2017-2018 season, Hall recorded 93 points and was awarded the Hart Memorial Trophy as the NHL’s most valuable player, leading the Devils to a playoff berth.
Hall’s journey in the NHL has continued with stints with the Arizona Coyotes, Buffalo Sabres, and then the Boston Bruins. Across these teams, he has showcased his ability to adapt and contribute offensively.
