NHL: Shane Wright scores his first goal of the season in his fourth game (Kraken)

San Jose, California. Seattle Kraken forward Shane Wright opened his account in his fourth game of the season on Monday, when he contributed to his club's offensive effort in the first period against the San Jose Sharks.

The Kraken were already in control 2-1 at the end of the first period when Wright completed a nice exchange with veteran Jordan Eberle.

Seattle's 51st goal eventually became the winner, given the final score of 4-2.

The fourth overall pick in the 2022 NHL Draft sent a backhander to Eberle, who returned the favor immediately, at the mouth of the net.

“I feel more comfortable. I talk a lot with my colleagues and I feel like I will feel more comfortable with them.” Radical sports.

Wright, who turned 20 in January, has not played a game at Pittman Arena since Nov. 13. Playing in the middle were Eberle and Jaden Schwartz for the occasion.

Over his entire career, he now has three points (2-1) in 12 games in a Seattle uniform.

The Burlington, Ont., native scored 43 points (20-23) in 56 games in his first full AHL season with the Coachella Valley Firebirds.

Matty Benners and Olivier Bjorkstrand also scored at the expense of Mackenzie Blackwood during the first half.

Jared McCann completed the scoring at 19:53 of the third period, as San Jose pulled Blackwood with a sixth skater.

Philipp Grubauer was automatically in the band led by Dave Hakstol. He made 25 saves in the win.

McDavid is one point behind Kucherov and MacKinnon

Connor McDavid put on a show to ensure the Edmonton Oilers earned a point from the St. Louis Blues, who won 3-2 in overtime.

Brandon Saad grabbed the puck as soon as he came off the bench in overtime and got past Stuart Skinner who foiled him with a neat trick.

Back to McDavid, the Oilers captain did a great job setting up Leon Draisaitl's goal with less than six minutes left in the third period. Thus, the number 97 collected his 97th assist of the season and raised his total points to 126.

He is just one point behind Nikita Kucherov and Nathan MacKinnon atop the NHL scoring charts. The Tampa Bay Lightning forward had an assist on Monday night to join McKinnon at the top, while being shut out in the Colorado Avalanche's loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Brayden Schenn scored both goals in regulation for the Blues, who still cling to the playoff race. With 84 points, they are three points behind the Los Angeles Kings and in last place among teams recruiting in the West.

Jordan Binnington was a big reason for the Blues' win over Alberta thanks to his 36 saves. He stopped 10 more balls than Skinner in the game.
