Breakout Player / Pleasant Surprise for 2013

For the last few years we've been lucky enough to have some players really come into their own as Rangers. Whether those are up-and-coming kids who we've all been watching since they were drafted (Del Zotto, Stepan, Staal), or guys who just came out of nowhere to make an impact (Girardi, Prust, Callahan). We have the typical lineup / trade threads going, but I wanted to get a different kind of discussion going. So, who is your breakout player and / or biggest surprise of the shortened 2013 season?

Personally, I'm really intrigued by Marek Hrivik. The kid has sublime hands but was passed over several times in the draft because his skating was terrible. He's made huge strides in that department, and you could even say he's "deceptively fast" at this point. He needs to shoot the puck more, but I think he could be built to succeed in the Rangers system. I think he's really going to turn some heads this year.
