In the NHL rankings, Boston Bruins' winger David Pastrnak shines at the top of the 'Top 20 Wings' list by the NHL Network. Teammate Brad Marchand secures the tenth spot. Evaluated for electrifying goals and exceptional skills, they're now elite players.

This unveiling was part of a captivating nine-part series that gripped hockey enthusiasts nationwide.

NHL Network hosts Tony Luftman, E.J. Hradek, and Mike Rupp weighed in. Rupp praised Pastrnak as a Hart Trophy contender, though the award went to Connor McDavid.

Pastrnak's 61 goals, second only to McDavid, and 52 assists placed him near the top in points earned, just behind Draisaitl and McDavid.


Pastrnak's $90 million, eight-year extension maintains his impact on the Boston Bruins, and his 50-season goals achievement hasn't been seen since Cam Neely in '93-'94.

Marchand's resilience after surgery and a delayed start impressed Rupp, with 20+ goals in ten straight seasons showcasing his dedication.

Both players solidified their importance in the Boston Bruins' lineup through these rankings.
