Observations:

 

October 23, 2014 – Gaudreau and Raymond join Mikael Backlund to make up the Flames' second line tonight. Since sitting in the pressbox for a night, Johnny has a goal and two assists in two games. Brad Wilson

 

October 21, 2014 – Gaudreau will be on the third line again tonight and will be joined once again by Mason Raymond. The duo combined for four points last game versus the Jets. Finding some sustained chemistry with a player like Raymond could help boost Johnny towards a loftier 40-50ish points in his rookie campaign. He has some catching up to do after six games.  Brad Wilson

 

October 2014 – Gaudreau will draw back into the lineup tonight (Oct19th) against the Jets. He is expected to play on a third line that also includes Mikael Backlund and Mason Raymond. It could be an interesting combination if they get quality ice time to show their stuff. Brad Wilson

 

October 2014 – After going pointless in his first five games Johnny was looking at the game from the pressbox. Now, it is left to linger, how long before he packs for Adirondack. Lets face it folks, we all knew that if he was going to make it, it was going to be as a top six. Right now he isn't getting top six ice time and not that I'm saying he deserves it, but production will be relative to his time on the ice. 12 minutes will get you 20-30 points. Elevated to 16-18 minutes gets you 50-60… In my humblest of opinions. Stay tuned for the next chapter in the saga of Johnny Hockey. Brad Wilson
