Bill Clement said after Monday's Flyers loss that James van Riemsdyk transformed from a boy playing amongst men to a man playing amongst boys. It really has been a remarkable thing to watch as JVR has become a dominant force on the ice. Today, van Riemsdyk celebrates his 22nd birthday and will look to add some icing on the big day by putting in another huge effort this evening in Boston.
Happy Birthday, kid. Now go out there and dominate.
