Kaiden Guhle takes on a lot of value

Kaiden Guhle seems more and more comfortable taking responsibilities over a numerical advantage.

The Alberta forward skated 1:42 into a five-man attack against the Arizona Coyotes on Monday and once again showed off his navigating skills in the second half on the climb that allowed Cole Cofield to open the scoring in the second period.

Time to get Guhle into the first wave with four attackers? Martin St. Louis defends patience, but is aware of the skills of his 20-year-old protege.

“I think from the very beginning, one wanted to focus on his 5-on-5 game and not give him too much responsibility,” he said after training Tuesday at Mullett Arena, Arizona. When you have a lot, you are not perfect all around. You are average all around. Physically, it is demanding. mentally too.”

Guhle has so far averaged 20:37 ice time, the most on defense. With Joel Edmondson, he encounters the best lines.

“Since the beginning of the year, he’s been seeing highlights and everything. It’s demanding of the young man. It shows us that we can give him a little bit from time to time and increase his responsibilities. With injuries, he speeds things up a bit. We know he has the attack, and we’ll see how he manages the numerical advantage.

In a sign he has more responsibility, Guhle totaled more than 23 minutes in Monday’s 3-2 overtime win over the Coyotes.

He finds himself more offensive, which indicates the ease with which he develops.

It shows him sometimes he has to be more involved in attack and other times he has to stay behind. It depends on the outcome and the time of the meeting, but in general, He reads the game well,” complimented the head coach.
