Martin Necas finally arrives
We’ve all been waiting for the Czech-born player to get to his scoring touch back. We all knew that he was too talented to have lost it and Martin Necas repaid the Caniacs with his best game of the season in this one. While it was a major struggle for the team, Necas always looked a class above. He was getting a lot of chances and honestly could have had a hat trick if he had a little more confidence.
His slapshot from the point would get the team back into the game. Yes, it took a little deflection to fool Karel Vejmelka, but Necas had been so unlucky to this point in the season that he’d earned himself a little bit of a break this time. His reaction when the puck went in says everything you need to know for the struggling Czech talent.
Necas would also record an assist later in the game on the powerplay, as he doubled his point total on the season. We know that he’s going to survive this struggling start, this could even be the turning point to see him return to his past success. He’s too talented a player to keep hushed for an extended period of time.
We all saw Necas blast past people with the puck like they’re ghosts, and his speed is a scary attribute for defenders in this league. It’s common knowledge that speed kills in this league, and slower players get cast off. When you’re as fast as Necas with hands like his, it’s just a matter of time until you get it back, and we can all hope Necas builds off this game in the windy city.
