When Guelph right wing Scott Kosmachuk was recruited to play for the Toronto Marlboros at age 7, he had one simple goal in mind: have fun.

Not much has changed for Kosmachuk in 11 years -- having fun is still the defining factor in his game -- but as he heads to Pittsburgh for the 2012 NHL Draft, it's working in his favor more than ever.

"You play hockey obviously because you love it, not because you're made to," Kosmachuk told NHL.com. "I play because I love it, it's really fun for me, it's something that I enjoy doing. If you let the pressure get to you, then you're not playing for yourself."
