Up until recently, I wouldn't really see Max put his shoulder down and drive the net, but in the last few games he's put some of his own Erik Cole style rushes to the crease. Anyone else notice this?
I completely agree with this! Best thing that could happen to a young player with that much potential is to play with someone who he should be like. What's even greater is Cole's personality who embraces this and takes the kid under his wing. A great match! Can we thank Gauthier for this one at least?
