Overview

Behind every young star is a great story and Young Guns II is packed full of both.

Every young hockey player in the world shares the same dream, but there are many different paths to NHL glory. Young Guns II profiles 25 of the best fresh faces in the world and traces their rise to hockey supremacy. These pages reveal not only the love and dedication every one of these players has for hockey, but the endless support and guidance they got along the way from tireless parents and coaches.

Find out why Carey Price's dad was willing to not just drive, but fly, his son to games and practices before the Montreal Canadiens goalie was even a teenager; Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson learned the value of hard work from his lumberjack father growing up in Sweden; and San Jose Sharks center Logan Couture begged to be taken off the ice the first time he skated.
