That Time Patrick Laine Was Welcomed To The NHL
2 fought for youth supremacy. 1 prevailed. But, would the story have read differently if Patrick Laine never received a suicide pass from Mark Scheifele? Maybe. Come on though...it wasn't Scheifele's fault. Jake McCabe, of the Buffalo Sabre, just timed it perfectly and officially became the welcoming committee of the NHL.
A completely clean, demolishing hit that we have zero issues with. Despite missing the next 8 games with a concussion, we're glad he didn't get seriously injured. The kid put on a hell of a show this year, and Winnipeg, if they can build that team around him, will playoff bound for many years!
