zetterberg, perron, and park were all 17 year old studs. yes, players can bloom between 10 and 17, but they don't do it overnight. they all had to excel at every level before they were promoted.
Well for one, David Perron was playing Midget B at 16 years old (lowest Midget level in his region), then in the next three years he played in junior AAA, then for Lewiston in the Q, then for the Blues. As far as I'm concerned, that's as close to an overnight bloom as it's ever going to get.
