As we get closer to the top five of this ranking, we also get to another player that has seen more than a few games (yet less than a lot) of NHL action — Joey Hishon. After missing the entire 2011-12 season and most of the following campaign due to a concussion, he is still on his way to bounce back. He has 16 games with the Colorado Avalanche on his record so far, where he scored on goal and recorded two assists.

Hishon looked very promising in his 13 games last season, especially when coach Patrick Roy started giving him more ice time. Nevertheless, he is likely going to start with the San Antonio Rampage in the AHL next season, while being a prime candidate for an early call-up.
