Got this return from one of the best in the league, Johnnny “Hockey” Gaudreau. I love that Johnny is only a few years from his prime and that he still signs cards for his fans.
He was drafted by the Calgary Flames in the 2011 Entry Draft, going 104th overall. I can’t say that I had a beat on Johnny back then but boy what a great pick by the GM brass. If a redraft were to occur now, he’d definitely be a top 10 draft pick. I’m sure throughout the years, people probably counted Johnny out largely due to his tiny demeanor. Standing at 5’9″ and 160 lbs, he’ll never beat you in a physical battle. If anything, he’ll use his quickness and agility to beat you. He’s done some amazing things in Calgary and hopefully he can help this Calgary team advance to the playoffs soon enough.
Thanks for the autograph Johnny, it’s really appreciated.
As expected, Johnny participated in the NHL All Star weekend as seen below winning the puck control relay event over Patrick Kane:
