With five goals over his final two games, Nail Yakupov has placed himself in the race for the Calder Trophy.

Yakupov finished his rookie campaign with 31 points, which tied him with Florida's Jonathan Huberdeau for the league lead in rookie scoring. While he may not be the favorite to win the award, we think he's likely to have to have the most productive career of any of this year's rookie class.
