Johnny Gaudreau is on fire

Look at this article

The attacker of the Calgary Flames Johnny Gaudreau harvest points at a rapid pace these days and, unless an unexpected injury, he should have no difficulty to know the best season of his career in attack.

Once again Monday, the player 5 feet 9 inches, has to say about him, carrying a brace in a victory of 4 to 3 against the Blackhawks of Chicago. He has hit the target in a fifth consecutive game, and he boasts seven goals and six assists during that run successful.

With 64 points, including 26 net, 44 parties since the beginning of the campaign, Gaudreau is only 20 points to match his peak in the national hockey League (NHL). He will also represent the section and the Pacific at the next classical star, and it will be his fifth participation in a row at this event. What more to say?

“I think our whole team is playing well. My name is on the score sheet, which is excellent. By contrast, our group is getting better every night,” he said humbly at the site NHL.com.

Also, the number 13 would like to acknowledge the contribution of its trio partners, Sean Monahan and Elias Lindholm.

“Our line accomplishes a good job, he told the newspaper “the Calgary Sun” before the meeting on Monday. We’re smart in the defensive zone and when we get scoring chances, found the back of the net.”

The Hart trophy?

Also, more and more observers believe that Gaudreau should at least have the chance for the Hart trophy, awarded to the outstanding player in the NHL. His teammates are all in agreement.

“Absolutely, he should be there, mentioned Matthew Tkachuk. What he has done for us recently is hard to achieve, if you think about it. We look at how he led us to the victory and its production : it seems that each of his / her attendance, he will do something interesting with the puck.”

“We see it at work every day and every night. I think the Hart should be awarded to the guy who stands up for the important moments and helping his club to win. And who has done better than him this year?” added captain Mark Giordano about his team-mate.
