Not all Bruins fans are… jerks.
Ever since he was a kid, Kirby Dach has been a passer first and foremost. It’s this aspect of his game in particular that has brought him to where he is today. Without necessarily becoming a maverick like Cole Caufield, Dach is aware that his weak point is his shooting, and is doing everything he can to improve in this area.
Perhaps he should seek advice from a certain Connor Bedard, who, without having played a single game in the Bettman circuit, may already have one of the best shots in the league…

Obviously, he didn’t call on Bedard directly, but turned to an expert, who had worked with Blackhawks prospect Tim Turk. He’s also worked with Brendan Gallagher.
Turk’s specialty is shooting the puck, and he’s also interested in the technical side of things.
Dach’s ability to improve and his work ethic are impressive. – Tim Turk
Kirby Dach has way more personality than we thought & credit goes to the hosts of the Empty Netters podcast for letting him be himself & share these awesome stories.
Mainstream NHL media often just turns players into robots, so it’s nice to see them being fun & personable here. https://t.co/70L8o0mBUm

As his first NHL team, Chicago will always be a club he’ll love to play against. It’s a shame the CH only plays the Hawks twice a season…
However, the opening game at the Bell Centre in 2023-2024 is against Connor Bedard’s team, and I don’t have to tell you how excited Dach is. The podcast hosts noted that he’s three points shy of the NHL’s 100 plateau, and let’s just say that if he were to reach that plateau against his former team, he could repeat the “are you not entertained?” celebration to the few opposing fans on hand.
Dach also said he’s very happy in Montreal, and has never had so much fun playing field hockey since junior. He loves the coaching staff and has great chemistry with his teammates. He’s obviously very close to Cole Caufield, Nick Suzuki and other youngsters, and he’s very eager to build on what the team started last season.
I, for one, can’t wait to see if his sessions with Tim Turk bear fruit. In 2022-2023, he scored 14 goals in 58 games. Imagine how many he could score if he played 82 games with a revised shooting technique…
– He has a real chance of joining him.

Will he still be in the Big Apple next year? https://t.co/7f5QP5qEsc

– A professional tryout with the Blues.
Blues have signed Isaac Ratcliffe to a PTO. Flyers moved up in 2nd round of 2017 draft to select 6-6, 200 pound forward, but injuries derailed him and he was traded to Nashville in February

– He’s quite a defenseman.
