NHL 18: Top 4 Players to Be Entrusted With An Important Position

Based on the performance in FIFA 17, some players will be ungraded in FIFA 18. According to their overall rating, EA Sports picks up four best players to go forward to FIFA 18. Here you can see who they are.  
 
Brad Marchand - Boston Bruins

Last season, Marchand continued to prove himself more than just a highly skilled pest by falling just one goal short of an astonishing 40 goal regular season campaign, even better than his previous total of 37 goals. Boston defied pre-season expectations by clinching the playoffs, breaking a tie with the resurgent Maple Leafs by virtue of more regulation/overtime wins, thanks largely to a career year by Brad Marchand. They fell in the first round to a surprisingly efficient Ottawa Senators team, but without Marchand’s team-leading performance over the course of the season, they wouldn’t have even made the dance.
 
Marchand was in the mix for the scoring title for the majority of the season, benefiting from sparkling chemistry with the emerging David Pastrnak, before Connor McDavid tore away from the rest of the pack in the last few games. He still finished with 39 goals and 85 points over a full 82 game season, coupled with a further 6 points in 6 playoff games - not bad for a player whose previous career best was 60 points. He’s sure to have a higher overall rating than his 87 from NHL 17.
 
Sergei Bobrovsky - Columbus Blue Jackets

Playing in a somewhat non-traditional hockey market, it’s easy to forget that Sergei Bobrovsky just won the second Vezina Award for best goaltender in his young career. As an MVP finalist this past season, Bobrovsky’s performance was the main reason for the Blue Jackets’ dominant stretch in the regular season that ultimately saw them finish with 108 points - by far the best season in the franchise’s history.
 
His amazing stats of a 2.06 GAA and .931 save percentage were bettered only by his performance in the lockout-shortened 12/13 season. He wasn’t too hot in the playoffs against the defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins, but that shouldn’t tarnish his MVP level play over the course of the year.
 
Bobrovsky just scratched the top 10 goaltenders in NHL 17, tied for 10th place, but he deserves to find himself in the region of the top five goalies in NHL 18. At 28 years old, Bobrovsky looks to be just entering his prime. Coupled with the expected progression from Columbus’ already outstanding defensemen Seth Jones and Zach Werenski, Bobrovsky should be set for another impressive year as one of the top goalies in the NHL.
 
Jack Eichel - Buffalo Sabres

The luck of the lottery may not have gifted them Connor McDavid as Buffalo had hoped, but they hit on the next best thing in the 2015 draft in the form of the prodigious Jack Eichel. In most other draft years, Eichel was talented enough to go first overall, and he’s duly proved his ability over the past two seasons. He was highly unfortunate to miss the first quarter of his sophomore year due to a freak injury, but upon his return, Eichel immediately proved himself the best player on the Sabres finishing at almost a point per game with 61 total games played.
 
He may (or may not) have had a substantial role in the firing of Dan Bylsma, but luckily for him there’s no “diva”skill set in EA’s NHL games. Under the guidance of new coach Phil Housley, Eichel should continue to dominate for the Sabres, and after his second consecutive impressive year in which he matched his rookie season goal total despite playing just 61 games, he should see his stats boosted closer to 90 than the 86 rating he had in NHL 17.
 
Jake Guentzel - Pittsburgh Penguins

This past season defined breakout for the previously unknown Jake Guentzel, promoted to the Penguins' lineup by virtue of his dominant AHL stats. He earned a permanent spot on the roster and ended up as one of the key cogs in a campaign which saw the Penguins repeat as Stanley Cup Champions, a feat that hadn't been achieved in the NHL since 1992.
 
A third round pick in 2013, Guentzel had spent the past few years working his way up through college and minor-league level play before his parent team could ignore him no longer; his 42 points in 33 AHL games were almost matched upon his promotion with 33 points in 40 NHL games. Yet Guentzel didn’t stop there, with his pace only heating up in the post season as he came close to tying an all-time record for rookie playoff goalscoring with an astounding 13 goals.
 
For someone not even on the Penguins roster in NHL 17, Guentzel should land in a permanent role in the lineup of this year’s game with a more than solid overall rating.
