Anthony Duclair Appears To Have Settled In With Ottawa

from Frank Seravalli of TSN,

Remember when John Tortorella eviscerated Anthony Duclair last season, saying he thought Duclair didn’t know how to play?
 
“I don’t think he knows how to play; I don’t,” Tortorella said last February, just hours before a game in Duclair’s hometown of Montreal, no less. “I don’t know if he just can’t comprehend or he’s just stubborn … He’s off the rails.”
 
Tortorella was certainly reminded on Saturday, after Duclair torched Torts’ Blue Jackets with a hat trick, becoming the first player in Ottawa Senators history to complete the trick with an overtime winner.
 
Ripped by Tortorella on his way out of Columbus. Five different NHL teams in six seasons. Three consecutive one-year contracts.
 
It’s fair to declare that Duclair’s renaissance in the nation’s capital is one of the best individual hockey stories of the season.
