The 2021-22 NHL season hasn’t been kind to everyone, but even on the worst of teams, there is something to be thankful for.
We Canadians already celebrated Thanksgiving over a month ago, but any reason to eat turkey and pumpkin pie is one I’ll gladly take, and this Thursday marks Turkey Day for our friends south of the border.
In the season of giving, here’s one thing each NHL team can be thankful for at this point of the season.
Anaheim Ducks: Troy Terry’s terrific point streak! It may be over, but the Ducks’ forward notched at least one point in 16-straight outings, marking the third-longest streak in team history.
Arizona Coyotes: The Coyotes can be thankful they have a place to play hockey games in… for now.
Boston Bruins: Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron are still playing well! Who knows how much longer either player (especially Bergeron) can continue producing at this level.
Buffalo Sabres: Cheap Jack Eichel merchandise! Now that the star centre has been dealt, you can find all of his fanwear and memorabilia on sale at the local Dave and Adam’s Card World. In perfect time for the holidays, too!
Calgary Flames: Donuts. The Flames have blanked its opponents in seven of its 20 games, and Jacob Markstrom is averaging one shutout for every three starts.
Carolina Hurricanes: Seth Jarvis. The team’s 2020 first-round pick will remain on the main roster after scoring four goals and six points through his first 10 NHL contests.
