Zemgus Girgensons is not you average, run-of-the-mill NHL hockey prospect.
He has taken the road less traveled to pro hockey.
Girgo was selected 14th overall in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft by the Sabres. With the selection Girgensons became the highest drafted Latvian born player in NHL history. He was picked 16 spots higher than fellow Latvian Sandis Ozoliņsh in 1991.
