I saw something a little different from Hags last night. As always he was really on the puck, but on a couple occasions he stopped and made a move coming in on the half wall, made a grreat pass for a top quality chance for soemone in the slot.

Torts was saying how he creates so much with his legs, but doesnt necessarily make any passes. Hags could have had 3 assists last night, primary assists. He is really seeing the ice well and I think the experience factor from playing so many games last season is starting the click in. As fast as he is, he is learning to slow down the game by stopping at the right moment when hes carrying the puck, opening up holes for his teammates.

The kid is on fire now and is really making this team go to be honest. Really a catalyst for the offense, love watching this kid play.

Btw, dont want to hijack - but speaking of offense, Cally was really handling the puck well last night. Complete confidence with the puck and doing an unbelievable job of protecting it for a guy his size.
