“Cole (Caufield) was hiding my helmet,” Strobel said, bursting out laughing. I wasn’t planning to do this. »

He was called up from the Laval Rocket on Monday, and Strobel made his NHL debut two days later. My father, mother, and brother traveled to California to experience this wonderful moment.

The American said: “After my first appearance, I had the feeling that it was a match like any other. But when you look at the other team’s players, you see players that you’ve been watching on TV for a long time. It could be a little scary, but it was still hockey. »

In the morning, Strobel said he expected to see his mother very emotional at this game against the Ducks.

“I haven’t had time to talk to her yet, but I can imagine she was very happy,” he said. I can’t wait to see my dad. »

good start

Strobl managed his emotions well in the first game. Used to the left of Gustav Lindström, CH’s second-round pick played a simple game and used his speed to rush into the opposition box several times.

“I liked his game,” Martin St. Louis said. He’s a good skater and able to make physical plays. He didn’t look uncomfortable. »
