Top-5: Jakob Chychrun returns to the dressing room with the Dallas Stars

There were six games on the program yesterday in the National Hockey League, so here’s what caught the eye.

1. Jakob Chychrun returns to the dressing room with the Dallas Stars

Last night’s game between the Dallas Stars and Ottawa Senators featured a very funny moment.

In a 5-4 win for the Stars, Senators defenseman Jakob Chychrun returned to the dressing room with the Dallas Stars.

Watch for yourself.

It’s really quite a comical moment to see a player walking down the same tunnel as the opposing team, while the rest of his team takes a different route.

It’s also quite comical to see that none of the Stars players seem to be surprised by the situation, and that none of them try to stop Chychrun.

So there’s got to be a logical explanation for all this, right?

Chychrun didn’t simply take the wrong path in order to change teams, being fed up with the Ottawa Senators, although that’s understandable.

From what I understand, Chychrun was shot in the face and had to go to the infirmary for treatment, which is more easily accessible via the main tunnel.

Anyway, it made for a funny moment and some unusual images.

And that’s not the only bizarre element of this match, as we were treated to a goalkeeping nightmare at the start of the game, to say the least.

2. First goal in his first NHL game for 6’8″ Adam Edstrom

The New York Rangers are one of the best teams in the entire NHL this season, and that doesn’t seem to be changing anytime soon.

They have a beautiful, well-built team, and even when a new player enters the lineup, he finds a way to stand out.

Indeed, last night, 23-year-old Adam Edstrom was playing in his first career NHL game, and he took the opportunity to score his first career goal.

As you’ll surely notice from the footage, the Rangers’ sixth-round pick (161ᵉ overall) in 2019 is big, very big indeed.

Well, indeed, Edstrom is very tall, as he stands 6 feet 8 inches tall.

He’s only the 7th player 6 feet 8 inches or taller to play in the NHL.

3. A second goal this season for Alexander Romanov

The former Montreal Canadiens defenseman shone last night, scoring his second goal of the campaign in the New York Islanders’ 5-4 shootout loss to the Boston Bruins.

As for the game as a whole, well, as always, the Bruins found a way to get the two points.

A HUGE thank you to Linus Ullmark.

4. Zach Benson and Alex Tuch have fun against Stanley Cup champions

For the 13th overall pick in the most recent draft, Zach Benson is doing VERY well in his rookie season.

Few people saw any players other than the 2023 top-3 (Connor Bedard, Leo Carlsson and Adam Fantilli) playing in the NHL in their first season.

Well, Zach Benson has proven otherwise, as he establishes himself more and more in the Buffalo Sabres line-up.

Last night, he put together two great plays in 1 minute and 43 seconds against the Stanley Cup champions.

Here they are.

He also helped Alex Tuch find the back of the net against his former team.

In short, Benson continues to shine, with 10 points (four goals and six assists) in 21 games.

5. Two goals in 19 seconds for the Hurricanes

In a crazy game between the Carolina Hurricanes and the Nashville Predators, the Canes scored two beautiful goals in the space of 19 seconds.

Here they are.
