Rick Nash was the first overall pick in the 2002 NHL Draft and he would quickly prove to the Columbus Blue Jackets that they made a good selection. As a sophomore Nash would put he puck in the net 41 times, which was enough to win the Maurice Richard trophy for the most Goals in a Season. Nash would never win that award again but he would have seven more 30 Goal campaigns, two of which were at least 40.
