First NHL goal this evening for 2017 1st rounder Kristian Vesalainen. We spoke about him today on the show and one of the things we discussed was how it seemed that the Jets wanted to change his style of game. Using his big body in front of the net puts him in position to score. As Nate Schmidt told me this summer, do what you need to do to stay in NHL.
Also Nikolaj Ehlers, who has looked good despite not getting any points, finally got his first so the panic button can be put away.
Mutli point game:
Nate Schmidt 3A
Paul Stastny 2G
Kyle Connor 1G 1A
Pierre-Luc Dubois 1G 1A
