This season is especially significant for these players, as one of them will be lifting the cup at the end of it all.

Both have been integral to their team's success, with Montour filling in a spot left by Aaron Ekblad with an impressive regular season performance.

The journey to the finals has been remarkable for both teams, with the Panthers sweeping the Carolina Hurricanes and the Golden Knights securing a memorable win against the Dallas Stars. It's sure to be an exciting series, and the inclusion of these talented indigenous players only adds to the excitement.
