The Avalanche won the Stanley Cup against the Lightning a few days ago. Colorado’s formation then robbed Tampa Bay’s and won a third straight.
Culminating the ties to Nathan MacKinnon and co. got the ink flowing, and that’s good the way it is.
In Montreal, many fans said they were happy for former Montreal Canadiens Artturi Lehkonen. The latter has made the organization proud in the seasons spent under the team’s colors. Everyone will remember his goal, scored in Saint-Jean last year to take CH to the Cup final!
Purchased by Joe Sakic at close, Finn has performed extremely well for the Avalanche. And the main prospect’s achievements might never have happened without the help of Tomas Plekanec, Lehkonen’s mentor upon his arrival in the metropolis.
After the game, his father insisted on praising the work Pleky in his son:
When he met Lehkonen’s father shortly after the big win, he looked at me and said two words: Pleky! Regarding Plekanec being a great mentor to his son Artturi and starting his NHL career in Montreal, he received help and advice from Tomas during the time they played together! Impressive

It’s always great to see something like this. Tomas Plekanec seemed like a very good person and we have proof of that here.
Here we see how much veterans can influence the careers of young people simply by supporting them. Some need more support, some don’t.
And for this reason too, the presence of veterans within a team and in a dressing room is an important factor in the success of a club, and not necessarily just in ice hockey. This also applies to all other sports…
Good for Lehkonen and congratulations to Plekanec for what he was able to achieve. Hoping others will follow the example set by the former Montreal Canadiens No. 14.
– It is normal.

– And we haven’t finished hearing about it yet.
So, according to Scouts, they argue that the small sample of Worlds and Olys overwrites a 3 year consistent Wright sample.
I think we’re getting high on the latecomer again.
To each their own talking points, but I choose Wright’s long and strong path.
