At the end of the season, the teams in the National Hockey League (NHL) showed an increasingly similar style of play to the playoffs. These are five players from the North Zone, where the Montreal Canadiens will play, and due to their strong performance, they may stand out in the next few weeks.
Earlier this month, during a battle with Calgary’s Brett Ritchie, Oilers forward Jujhar Khaira was stunned. Then, on April 19, it was defender Alexander Romanov who gave him a good check. In the case of returning to the game, players who are known for their robustness will become people to watch.
For its part, Canadians don’t expect nonsense. At the blue line, Ben Chiarot is not allowed to impose on himself. Despite being absent for a long time this season, he leads Habs at least four times in major penalties. His clients include JT Miller of the Vancouver Canucks, Brady Tkachuk of the Ottawa Senator, Matthew Tkachuk of the Flames and Wayne Simmonds of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Considered an ice disaster, Antoine Roussel has played 35 games with the Canucks since the start of the season. Limited to 4 points, he tried to disturb his opponent in many other ways. Currently injured, he should return to the game soon.
We all agree that the Senator will not make the playoffs, but forward Brady Tkachuk is a player, regardless of his background, he knows how to face adversity. He also tied with teammate Austin Watson with 6 points, becoming the national team with the most free throws this season.
