He also got into a few shoving matches with Lowe after the whistle and definitely wasn't shying away from the physical stuff. Don't know how anybody who watched him could not agree.
Kochlachev's goal against the WHL, he back checked a WHL forward trying to skate the puck out and turned it over resulting in a goal. Last time I checked that's about as effective a defensive play as you can make. Turning the puck over resulting in a goal for?
Yep, that's the goal I was talking about in my post. Loved that play. His work ethic is unmatched.
