Calgary Flames second-year player Johnny Gaudreau is known as a slippery playmaker with excellent hands.
He currently has 10 points in nine games this season, nine of which coming on assists. His dazzling array of offensive skills turned him into somewhat of a cult hero as a rookie with the Flames last season.
Check out the below stickhandling moves by Gaudreau behind the Ottawa Senators’ net in their Wednesday night game.
Number 74 on Ottawa is defenseman Mark Borowiecki. Calgary didn’t score on the play, but it sure did look nice.
Gaudreau has been one of the few bright spots on Calgary this year, which entered their game in Ottawa at 2-7-0.
Defenseman T.J. Brodie returned to the lineup after missing three-to-six weeks with a broken bone in his hand. The Flames’ puck-moving blueliner had been out since blocking a shot preseason in late September. Last season Brodie notched 41 points in 81 games played while averaging 25:12 of ice-time per-game.
General manager Brad Treliving is reportedly shopping his defense in hopes of sort upgrading to his struggling team.
