Let’s see what else happened around the league on this not-so-busy day.
1 : Alexis Lafrenière is enjoying good times
We need to talk about Alexis Lafrenière’s start to the season.
He had a slow start to the season, scoring one goal in his first four games… But he has brilliantly caught up since, tallying ten points in his last ten games.
The Quebecer had fun last night against the Columbus Blue Jackets. He scored two goals in his team’s victory, including this one:

Lafrenière now has scored seven goals since the start of the campaign, which ranks him first among players drafted in 2020 in this category.
I almost forgot. Alexis Lafrenière also secured the victory for the Blue Shirts in the shootout with a simply magical goal:

He’s doing well these days and that’s a good thing. As they say, patience is key with the youngsters… #Slafkovsky
We all knew he was going to be good. That said…
The Blackhawks were in Florida yesterday to face the Panthers and Bedsy once again worked his magic. He scored two goals, bringing his total to nine since the start of the season (in 13 games)…
The kid’s got six goals in his last six games!

I liked his celebration, by the way. He got a bit cocky by deciding to look at the Panthers fans, hehe. With what he’s been doing since the start of the season, he has the right to tease his opponents a little…
Because the team has a record of 8-6-0 after 14 games. We expected the team to face some difficulties at the start of the season because we’re talking about a very young squad…

Vatrano scored 22 goals in 81 games last season. Let’s just say he’s off to a good start…

Ivan Miroshnichenko won his battle against cancer in 2022 (Hodgkin’s lymphoma).
Last night was the Hockey Fights Cancer night in Hershey…
He scored a beautiful goal… Which led to a fine moment for the young man. Notice how all his teammates seemed genuinely happy for him:
