2. Svech’s Slump to Break Soon

Andrei Svechnikov is going through a bit of a slump right now.

It happens to almost every single NHL player, and it just so happens that Svech is the victim of one the past few weeks.

After staying late to shoot a few pucks after a game against Columbus a few nights ago, Svech managed to notch a goal in regulation against the Blue Jackets this past weekend, and I have a feeling that’s just a taste of what’s to come in the coming days for him.

There is no player more deserving in this league right now of breaking through a slump than Andrei Svechnikov; the kid has heart, determination, and potential in droves.

I would not be surprised to see Svech break his slump in a big way tonight.
