Matthew Tkachuk was a revelation with the 2016-17 Calgary Flames. The 18 year-old winger not only earned a spot with the big club out of training camp, but he was also one of the team’s best players all season long. The 6th overall selection of the 2016 NHL Entry Draft broke onto the scene in a big way with 13 goals and 48 points in 76 games.
Re-live all 13 of those goals with the highlight package below:
How can you not love this kid? He can score in so many different ways and in so many different situations. Snipe shot off the rush? You got it. Down and dirty rebounds from the top of the crease? No problem. Tkachuk takes a licking and keeps on ticking. We’re excited to see what he can bring in his sophomore campaign. Is 20 goals and 55 points out of the question? We don’t think so, this kid’s the real deal.
