Carolina’s rookie comes through
When people talk about Carolina’s top talents, the names that come to mind are the members of the SAT line. When you’re down, it should be them that inspire the comeback right? Yet, last night it was Carolina’s rookie that came through to give the team the kick in the read end that the team needed to continue their unbeaten record. It wasn’t the SAT line, it was Seth Jarvis.
His absolutely beautiful goal in the second period really kick-started the comeback for the Canes to cut the Hawks league in half. His fake deke allowed the puck to slide through the five-hole of the Chicago Blackhawks netminder. It was his play that allowed the Canes to start mounting their comeback and his performances in his first two games indicate that he is going to become a star.
Jarvis has a lot of room to improve. No one is going to argue with that, but in this game at least, he has earned himself a spot higher up the lineup. He’s a point per game as a rookie in the NHL with some crucial points. He’s not supposed to be the game-breaker for a 9-0 team, yet he’s stepping up when no one else on his team will. He’s exactly what this team needs.
On top of his scoring, his youth and speed make this team better. He skates hard and is a right-show winger, something Carolina doesn’t have a ton of. He’s going to be an important player for the organization in the future. But now he’s stepping up when the stars just don’t is so promising for such a young kid.
