WOW: Special Guest Appears at Canadiens Practice and it Delights Juraj Slafkovsky

Published February 9, 2024 at 1:13 PM

We mentioned yesterday an incredible scene involving Juraj Slafkovsky, which had set the internet ablaze.

We saw the young Slovak practicing his shots, more than 25 minutes before the team's practice, in order to improve this aspect of his game with a special guest, coach Glen "Dr. Shot" Tucker.

Slafkovsky does it again today

As his line mate Cole Caufield illustrated so well, mentioning how the Canadiens' first overall pick in 2022 was eager to progress, he repeated the effort today, before today's practice.

It's really interesting to see how much Slafkovsky has the desire to become the best possible, and it's something that makes him unique.

What's also exciting is to see that he's already starting to reap the fruits of his hard work.

During the last game in Washington, Slaf scored two goals with exceptional shots. He's starting to gain more confidence in this tool of his arsenal, which makes him even more dangerous and unpredictable on the ice.

This culture of hard work that's being established among the Canadiens, especially among the young players, is very encouraging and promising for the future of the team.

Even though he's only 19 years old, he has already become a leader of this new philosophy at the Canadiens.
