Quebecman Alexis Lafrenière spent the best moments of his young career in the National Hockey League (NHL) when he was transferred to the offensive trio of the New York Rangers accompanied by Mika Zibanejad and Pavel Buchnevich.
The young man from Saint-Eustache scored a goal and assists at Madison Square Garden in a 4-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday.
Will Lafrenière, Zibanijad and Buchnevich be at the core of a better future for the Wanderers? Maybe.
Currently, the first person in the most recent draft is the second time in his career that he has scored 2 points in the same game. At the same time, he scored his ninth NHL goal.
The 19-year-old also scored a goal and an assist in New Jersey on March 4, and the Rangers defeated the Devil 6-1. At the beginning of the third period, he became Buchnevic’s accomplice, and Zibanejad set a goal for him late in the game.
Since the start of the season, the former Rimouski Oceanic has accumulated 16 points in 48 games. Most importantly, he has scored 5 goals in the last 15 games and feels more and more comfortable.
In Friday’s game, head coach David Quinn used the Rangers No. 13 team for nearly 18 minutes. This can only help him find his own rhythm.
Quebecers’ average playing time this season is 13 minutes and 41 seconds.
