Ducharme: Cauffield “tighten his stick a little”
There is no denying that Coffield has been struggling since the start of the 2021-2022 season.
The former University of Wisconsin player received only one assist in 10 games. So the organization felt it was time to make a change.
In his post-training press conference, Ducharme explained the reasons for Caufield’s sacking at the AHL.
“He was playing a bit on the heel, not confident and dynamic with the disc. He had a few good shots on the net, but he pressed a stick a little hard. We want him to have a good ice time, gain self-confidence, score some goals and find his rhythm in,” Ducharme said. Play.” “It’s not a problem for a young player like him. Much appreciated. When you look at guys like Brad Marchand and David Pasternak. These guys, early on in their careers, had to go through these kinds of situations and come back and become really good players. That’s what we believe in Cole’s case. In the future, at the end of the day, this will help him. “
Drouin knows just how much of a young teammate he can be when he’s at his best, and he believes this change will make all the difference.
“Anyone who’s played in the AHL can say that helped improve their game,” said Drouin. “I think he’s going to play a lot of minutes there and get his speed back, his touches back.” “Sometimes when you’re young you feel the disc jump when you’re not playing well or playing the way you want to, and I hope he gets his game back. I’m sure he’ll get there.” He’s an excellent player, a good guy, and we wish him the best.”
Pezzetta will likely make his NHL debut on Tuesday night, as the Canadians begin a five-game streak at home against the Detroit Red Wings at Bell Center.
The 23-year-old winger excelled in the training camp, and the leaders of the Canadians clearly noted this.
Although he was eventually sent to Laval to start the year, Pezzetta didn’t let down, instead focusing on his role with Rocket on a regular basis.
“My goal was to keep the momentum in camp and apply it to my game,” said Pezzetta, who has six points (3 goals, 3 assists) in eight games this season. “I think I did a good job, that I kept my identity, that I played the same way while showing that I could contribute to different aspects of the game.”
The Toronto native, Montreal’s 2016 sixth-round pick (160th overall), admits that new Laval coach Jean-Francois Hall has helped him achieve his goal of making it into the NHL ranks. It is clear that two men established a strong business relationship in a short period of time.
“He gave me a chance. As soon as I met him he told me he knew I could play hockey and do more than run anywhere.” From the start he showed me that I could trust him, and I knew he trusted me, so he really helped me with my game after that I gave up. “
According to Ducharme, the presence of Gallagher and Petrie against Detroit will be decided shortly before the match.
Gallagher already missed Sunday’s game at Anaheim through injury.
Norlander could make his NHL debut in the next few days, but no schedule has been set yet.
Norlander 100%. He can train with contact. Obviously, he hasn’t skated with the team for a month, so he has to work on his fitness,” Ducharme noted. “But in the end, if he does a good job every day in training, we can see him play in match condition and assess what he can give our team. “
As for the defender Joel Edmondson“Maybe 10 days, maybe two weeks” to get back into training, Ducharme says.
