Given what we saw from the Finnish sniper is anyone surprised that he was named NHL 1st Star of the Month for November? He was sensational scoring 18 times, including three hat tricks for the Jets. I believe he is the first Jets 2.0 player to be the NHL Player of the Month.
Scott put his accomplishments for the month into perspective with this tweet:
Patrik Laine the NHL’s First Star of the Month for November.
– 18 goals, 1 assist in 12 GP
– 3 hat tricks (1st, 19th, 24th), all in different countries (Canada, US, Finland)
– 5-goal game (24th)
– 2-goal games (21st, 29th)
– 11 goals in 4-game goal streak#NHLJets

What will he do in December? We will find out tonight when he kicks off the month against the Devils.
For now watch the first 100 goals of his career.
