His time to shine: Jacob Peterson made his post-season debut in Game Five

Calgary, Alberta — After four matches of watching from the sidelines, Jacob Peterson He is set to make his post-season debut in a crucial Match 5 match at Scotiabank Saddledome.

The rising striker rushed to his side Vladislav Namestnikov And Luke Glinding During the club’s morning skate on Wednesday, the 22-year-old will get his chance in the spotlight against Sea of ​​Red. Of his 12 goals during the regular season, five were match winners, which co-led the NHL’s rookie team and ranked third in all-stars. Sweden’s Liedköping finished sixth in goals and finished the season with 17 points in 65 matches.

Peterson’s personality you can’t help but root for. Whether he’s in the squad or not, he always has a smile on his face and provides a ray of sunshine no matter what’s going on on the ice.

His first appearance after the post-season is one of two line-up changes in front of the stars, as Marian Studenik They will also draw. They will replace her Denis Guryanov And Alexander RadulovBoth played in game 4.

The message to both of them from head coach Rick Bowness in the previous ski game was simple.

“Just do what you do,” he said.

For a team that was only able to score seven goals in the first four games of the series, we hope Peterson brings the scoring touch he enjoyed during the regular season. All 12 of his goals have been scored aggressively, a testament to finding ways that breed the 5-on-5 attack. And while goal-scoring wasn’t there for Studenic, both players bring youth, energy and speed to the squad.

“Both are good skaters, they both grab balls and lead play,” Bowness told reporters. “That’s what we need now. We need to do some other o-zone games and in a hurry, see if we can score more goals on the board.”

Although the stage has never been greater and the stakes have never been higher since he came to North America, the scale of the game does not seem to be an inconvenience to the young Swede. He didn’t look out of place when he pulled the team out of training camp, even scoring on his NHL debut during the club’s season opener in New York. And when he was reassigned to the Texans in the American Hockey League in late October, he immediately scored five points (two goals, three assists) in six games.

The Superstars could definitely use some of that offensive punch in Game Five.
