How acquired: Via trade from the Detroit Red Wings in exchange for defenseman Ole-Kristian Tollefsen and a fifth-round pick in the 2011 NHL draft on Feb. 6, 2010.
Season: When it started, no one even knew who Ville Leino was. They do now. After a disappointing regular season in which the rookie netted just six goals in 55 games with the Red Wings and Flyers, Leino was a healthy scratch for Philadelphia in the first four games of the playoffs and was only inserted into the lineup in Game 5 against the New Jersey Devils because of injuries to Jeff Carter and Simon Gagne. But once he was put on a makeshift line with Scott Hartnell and Danny Briere and finally got some consistent ice time, Leino started to produce. He already has broken the team's previous rookie playoff scoring mark (Brian Propp, 15 points in 1980), notching 19 points (seven goals, 12 assists) in 18 games.
