Adam Gaudette never quit on fulfilling his NHL dream with the Vancouver Canucks and this season he broke out in a major way. Management should seriously consider pouncing on a long-term deal with the 23-year-old while he is still affordable.
Gaudette gave everything he had this year. From the very beginning of training camp, all the way to the NHL pause, the puck-hungry center never took his foot off the gas. He was 100% full-steam ahead, 100% of the time, and fortunately for him, that’s exactly the spark the 50th season Canucks needed, even if they didn’t know it at first.
