⭐️⭐️⭐️ – Alex Edler
The Vancouver Canucks stomped all over the Florida Panthers to continue their solid start to the season. Everyone seemed to step up for the Canucks and it is hard to credit anyone with success over another. One player who stood out perhaps more so then anyone else was Alex Edler.
Edler was an essential part to his team’s 7-2 win on Monday and recorded three assists on the night against Florida and finished the game with +4 rating. He also played 19:37 which was the second-highest TOI for Vancouver during the game. With that in mind, he would be behind only Jordie Benn. Edler improved his point totals to nine points in 11 games played after his three-point performance.
⭐️⭐️ – Connor Garland
Connor Garland led the Arizona Coyotes to defeat the league-leading Buffalo Sabres. Garland put up a two-point performance with a goal and a primary assist to tie the game up at two and send things to extra time. Garland had his third two-point night of the season and is quickly emerging as an important member of the rising Coyotes.
Garland’s performance helped put his team in a top-10 position in the overall league standings (ninth overall in the league) and third overall in the Pacific Division.
⭐️ – Carter Hutton
Despite a losing effort on Monday night against the Arizona Coyotes, Carter Hutton did everything possible to earn his team an extra point. The Sabres lost in a shootout against the Coyotes after Arizona came back from a 2-0 deficit early on in the first period. Despite not getting the W in the end, the Sabres could not have asked for anything more of Carter Hutton. Hutton made 42 saves on 44 shots throughout regulation and overtime and would go on to finish the game with a .955 SV%.
