Good McIlrath read on Howlings today.
A big part of that comfort zone has been the fact that, during the majority of his shifts in his first three playoff games in a Whale uniform, the 20-year-old McIlrath has been paired with 15th-year pro Wade Redden, the Whale captain and a veteran of nearly 1,000 NHL games.
“It’s great, not only on the ice but off the ice,” said McIlrath of the opportunity to play with Redden.
“After we come off from a shift, say one of us does something a little wrong, we can just talk it out.
And he’s just a calming presence, like I’ve said before, and definitely appreciate all he’s done for me.”
Bold is my favorite part, implying that Redden is making mistakes and McIlrath helps him with them
