GOTTA SEE IT: Suzuki Dazzles In The Shootout Yet Again



Montreal Canadiens

Nick Suzuki did it again, as he made an incredible shootout goal to give the Montreal Canadiens momentum against the Chicago Blackhawks.

The 23-year-old forward has made it a habit this season of scoring some big shootout goals, and this was no different.

Nick Suzuki broke down the right side and slowly came down the wing before cutting in the centre and waiting out Arvid Soderblom and popping the puck past him on the far side.

Suzuki has been wowing fans across the league as of late with his incredible hands and nifty moves, looking like the second coming of Pavel Datsyuk.

His prowess in a one-on-one setting has helped the Montreal Canadiens pull away from their rivals in some key games, and this was no different, as it helped set the stage for Kirby Dach’s shootout winner against his former club.


The newly-minted captain has taken part in the vast majority of the Canadiens’ goals this season, an impressive feat given he missed a decent amount of time with a lower-body injury during training camp. He’s been at the route of some of the biggest moments of the Montreal Canadiens this season, and doesn’t seem fazed at all by the added responsibility the captaincy has put on his shoulders.

Suzuki’s “Datsyukian Goal” has been his go-to move since making the jump to the NHL. Goalies may want to start to take note of Suzuki’s favourite move, as the goal was similar to one he scored against the Buffalo Sabres on a previous penalty shot attempt.

Suzuki continues to lead the Montreal Canadiens in scoring this season, with 12 goals and 12 assists for 24 points in 21 games. He’s been a leader in every sense of the word and has been a clutch element for the club as they continue to defy odds and rack up the wins in dramatic fashion.
