They might be rookies, but David Rundblad or Ottawa and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins of Edmonton show that they’ve got a certain set of skills that make them particularly lethal in a passing situation.

Check out the sauce skills on Rundblad as he hits Colin Greening with a lead pass from about 140 feet away to beat the Toronto defense while Nugent-Hopkins fires a video game-like pass through the zone to hit Shawn Horcoff for an easy dunk on the power play against St. Louis.
