It feels like the Sharks always give someone their first NHL goal

It's nice to see him finally pot one.

It's also nice to see a prospect with top 6 potential starting to pan out for us.

He's been doing pretty much everything right except scoring, so this was great to see.

He's been playing his ass off all year, big addition to the Hawks even though this is just his first. There will be many more to come.

All you heard about Saad at the draft was that he was a lazy player. Obviously playing hurt the second half before his draft had a lot to do with it.

Well, I've been to the training camp, pre-season games he played last year, and saw all of his games this year. All I can say about Saad is that he is one of the hardest working and most driven players on the team. He's been an absolute joy to watch.

Aside from guys like Toews and Kane of course.

But congrats to Saad, seems like he's got a good future.

I think someone did a survey and the sharks have given up the first goal of a players career to like 10% of the players in the league. The Sharks should give up the first goal to 3.33% of the players in the league, so they give up 3 times as many first goals as they should.

Why does everyone get a "1st goal" thread, but the Schultz one got closed for no reason?

Just curious.

We've been looking for the next Buff/Versteeg/Ladd type high end complementary forward since the Cup team was broken up. Well, Saad is one.

Well we gave Tommy Wingels his first goal last year so you had to help Saad get his.

Pretty sure Olcyzk phoned that one in. He's got a major chub for Wingels.

Hey Brandon, I just wanna say, that was a nice goal and I'm real proud of you but Jordan Eberle had the best first goal of all time! OF ALL TIME

He plays a 200 ft game. He hustles offensively and defensively, reads and disrupts plays defensively, sees the ice well and finds the open space, passes well, is big-bodied and hard to push off the puck, and he is reasonably physical. He has an obviously high hockey IQ, with the physical tools and skills to match.

On that goal, you could see him read the developing play, slide out a few feet to get open, and bury the shot with authority.

He's looking very good early into his first NHL season on the first line, and has been near the equal of Hossa and Toews in every facet save for scoring. Right now there's not much to dislike about him. While we have yet to see whether he can sustain this pace, the shortened season just might help him.

It's because they do. What is that three or four times already this season?

BTW notice the interference on braun that allowed him to "get open."

He sure does! Probably has a lot to do with both of them being from the Chicagoland region.

Very glad that it finally happened for him. Hopefully, it's the opening of some floodgates.
