Johnny Gaudreau Has More Things On His Mind Than US Politics

from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun,

“Honestly, me and my family have never really been into politics. My parents are out here and we watched it a little bit and talked a bit about it at dinner. It’s nothing that’s going to be in our everyday lives. Obviously it’s a big deal in the States. We read about it but didn’t worry too much about it.”

And therein lies clues to why Gaudreau could very soon snap out of his scoring funk:

While the bulk of folks are all up in arms over the election results, Gaudreau is unfazed.

The same can be said of how he’s dealing with the frustration and headlines of his own stemming from his poor start.

“In the game, it’s part of sports,” philosophized the $6.75-million left winger who has two goals, eight points and sits minus-11 after 14 games.

“Sometimes it’s frustrating and sometimes bounces are going your way. I think showing your frustration sometimes is a good thing — it shows how much you care about the game and you’re trying to make plays and be smart on the ice.”

This felt so forced, it was a tough read.  The author tried too hard.
