Johnny Hocks might have Justin Trudeau banging at his door at some point this morning telling him to get his bag packed. You pull that move off in the Canadian Division as an American? They're not above hauling your ass to Ontario and tossing you right over Niagara Falls and back in the States.
That's Connor Hellebuyck that Hockey just dangled to death there. And sure, maybe the Canadian government will take it a little easier knowing that this was American-on-American crime. But still. Hellebuyck won a little thing called the Vezina Trophy last year. Ever heard of it? That trophy is awarded annually to the NHL's top goaltender. So Ham & Cheese just took the top goalie in the league and had him looking like a fish flapping around out of water.
9 times out of 10, that's a forehand-backhand attempted roof job. You see the leg kick, you see the angle he's taking in, a little fake forehand, pull it backhand and try to put it up over the goalie's leg. Heck maybe even 9.5 times out of 10. But at the very last moment, that sick fuck Johnny Hockey decides to come back to the forehand and tuck this one right between Hellebuyck's legs. For the win. And what makes this even more disturbing is the fact that he stole this move from the guy Winnipeg thought they'd just seen the last of.
Forehand backhand forehand 5-hole. I bet Hellebuyck thought he saw a ghost when Gaudreau hit him with this move.
But yeah. Deport Gaudreau out of Canada. Maybe just speed up the process to finally bring Johnny HamNChee back home to Philly where he belongs. Dread it, run from it, destiny arrives all the same.
Hockey to Philly, confirmed.
