Since being selected thirteenth by the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2020 NHL Draft, center Seth Jarvis has become an essential contributor and fan favorite for the team.
The 20-year-old Winnipeg native has appeared in all but nine of the Canes’ games so far this season. In these 45 game appearances, Jarvis has made himself widely known and loved. He has made eight goals and 12 assists for an admirable 20 points.
Jarvis has become a significant part of the team’s success and first-place standing in the Metropolitan Division. He has four power-play points and two game-winning goals. In fact, these two game-winning goals came back-to-back. The first was in the November 16th matchup against Vegas. Jarvis’ goal 71 seconds into the third period gave the Hurricanes the lead and awarded them a 4-2 win.
Just two days later, the rookie recorded his second game-winning goal in the Canes’ next game against Anaheim, crushing the Ducks’ eight-game win streak. Jarvis’ third-period goal led his team to a 2-1 win.
Since his back-to-back game-winning goals in November, the right-handed winger has put up an additional five goals for the Hurricanes. One of these goals came in the game directly following the Ducks win, in November 20th’s win against the Kings.
Jarvis’ early-career success has made him popular amongst Canes fans. He has earned his spot as a Hurricane and continues to show up for the team in any way possible. For someone only twenty years of age, he’s been a very helpful addition to the lineup.
