Yeh I don't think he is 5'9'' He isn't below 5'7'' though.

The reason I think he'll make the NHL is his timing and passing. He just showed it the last half of the first period against UNH Great backhand pass to tie the game up and then with 7 seconds left in the period he recognizes his dman is getting the puck deep and he goes for a long home run pass and times everything for a "somewhat" breakaway chance. Great pass by the dman but there aren't many forwards who recognize and transition in those types of situations very often.

I think his hockey instincts put him in a top 6 position in the NHL in the next three years. Too smart of a hockey player who knows the game better than the vast majority of players in the NHL right now

Gaudreau has an assist in his first game back from WJC so far.

It was top notch but obviously "out of this world" is embelishing a bit. What was great about the pass was that the left wing was not up with the play and Gaudreau without much of a look, passed backhand backwards and was perfect right on the LW's stick. It was one of those plays that most players would have sent it across expecting the LW to be there. JG made it a perfect pass.

He just scored on a great backhand shot. He finds ways to get open, hide and then get an ideal scoring chance off of a ton of transitions.

His backhand is ridiculous. I'm guessing it was blocker side, top shelf?

EDIT: BTW any streams for this game by chance?

Don't know about streams but it's on NESN. Yeah top shelf. The goalie should have had it, but still the kid is clearly on another level than all of the UNH players.

Not been impressed by Brett Pesce who was on Central Scouting's watch list. Have been impressed by Austin Block. Might be a guy someone might sign as a free agent after the season.

Agree. Should have had it. That is why I love backhands. Even good goalies struggle with how backhands come off the stick

6 GWG in 15 games is quite amazing.

It's not a huge sample size, but it's even more impressive then say 3 winners in 5 games(because that is clearly not sustainable)

also considering he missed a few games with the WJC it's even more remarkable. If Gaudreau is playing in the game and his team wins the game the likelyhood that he is the player that scores the winning goal is 60%(ish). Quite frankly, that's insane.
