10:43 AM ET 10.26 | Nick Leddy's not the most demonstrative guy in the Blackhawks dressing room. He's not the type to complain or vent his frustration or, for that matter, to pat himself on the back. Already a veteran, but just 22, he understands there's a long way to go. But it's a humbling thing to spend 56 or 57 minutes of a Stanley Cup Final game on the bench, just watching. He has been a reliable presence through the first 10 games of the season, with three assists and a plus-2 rating. Maybe the fastest player on the team, he has been more aggressive offensively. He honed those offensive instincts in his home state of Minnesota, particularly on the big ice sheets in college hockey.

He did get his SC ring anyway so, I don't think he's complaining too much.

There you go! And, I bet he doesn't have any missing teeth.
