Tampa Bay Lightning

Victor Hedman, 29 years old, back, playoff points: 9 + 6 = 15

The Swedish full-back, who has been in Tampa Bay his entire NHL career, will play his second Stanley Cup final.

In 2015, he was great in the playoffs and he has been this year as well.

He is the team's top defender, but what really stands out this fall is his goal production.

With nine bags, he is not only the best of the slopes this year, but also a shared third through all time.

If Tampa Bay wins and Hedman makes a good final series, he has the opportunity to win the Conn Smythe Trophy, which goes to the most valuable player in the playoffs.

He may not be a favorite, as offensive stars like Brayden Point and Nikita Kucherov have also excelled, but he has the opportunity.

Dallas Stars

John Klingberg, 28 years old, back, playoff points: 3 + 13 = 16

The question is whether or not John Klingberg is playing the ice hockey of his life right now.

Hans Dallas Stars has barked all the way to the final and it is largely thanks to Klingberg.

But despite the big game, the Swede has not been the team's main defender in this playoff, but it has been his 21-year-old defender colleague Miro Heiskanen from Finland.

If possible, Klingberg and Heiskanen may have to rise another notch for Dallas to beat Tampa Bay.

Mattias Janmark, 27 years old, forward, playoff points: 0 + 5 = 5

Like Klingberg, Mattias Janmark has been loyal to Dallas since making his NHL debut.

In Janmark's case, it was 2015 and since then he has certainly played a role in one of the chains during the first.
