10. Kyle Okposo

Born from a Nigerian father and American mother, Kyle Okposo has made an impact in the NHL ever since he was drafted 7th overall in 2006 by the New York Islanders. Playing on the first line with none other than John Tavares since 2009, the St-Paul, Minnesota native has been able to produce great numbers over his 10 year career. The right winger has been able to score 134 goals and 213 assists in 508 career games. Off to a fast start in the 2016 season, Kyle Okposo continues to turn defenders heads with his blistering speed and tape to tape passes, attempting to help the Islanders to their second playoff birth in a row.
