The New York Islanders are counting on young forward Mat Barzal to be a top producer this season and the entire team and fanbase probably held their breaths on Thursday night when he was caught in a face by a couple of sticks in a game against the Winnipeg Jets.
Even though his lips swelled up, Barzal didn’t back down, recording two goals in the Islanders’ 3-1 victory and won the night with the best line of the season during his in-game interview after the second period, still feeling the pain from the hits he sustained.
“I feel like Kylie Jenner right now.”
The guy is going viral for sure! We pretty sure Jenner will appreciate the humour!
