After a nine-game scoring drought, Calgary Flames’ forward, Johnny Gaudreau finally snapped the bad streak.
And it wasn’t just any goal — it was his 30th goal of the season.
The first line Left-Winger has played in 60 games and has 30 goals and 49 assists for a combined 79 points. Gaudreau’s +/- is currently at 15.
The goal came against the New York Islanders on Wednesday. The two previous games, Gaudreau didn’t register any points against the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Arizona Coyotes.
He had seven shots in the game, which adds to his total of 191 this year. Gaudreau’s scoring is at a rate of 15.7 percent — the highest of his career.
Gaudreau was named the NHL’s second star in December and was the first star in January. In January 2019, he recorded at least one point in all of his games played except one.
Now, with 30 goals on the season, Gaudreau currently sits 16th in the league in goals, ahead of linemate Sean Monahan who currently has 29 goals this season.
Gaudreau tied his all-time scoring record of 30 goals from his 2015-2016 season. That season he played 79 games. If everything goes to plan for the rest of the season, Gaudreau should be continuing to smash his personal records.
