First Australian to score a goal in a NHL game, exhibition or otherwise:



He tipped that, you can see on the last view (and on the gif in the link above). Troy Brouwer made sure the officials changed the scoring.

Then, in his second preseason game, he assisted on Tom Wilson's goal and got a penalty shot, in which he apparently attempted a bold move. The announcers thought he was the best player on the ice.

Kid went undrafted the past two years and I have no idea why. I guess the Caps are going to benefit from this and it seems they're likely to sign the 19 year old. We'll see if they send him to a junior league in Canada or put him in Hershey. Kid's got great skills, he's small, but bold. I can guarantee no one has done more to further their hockey career than he has. Born in Wales, grew up in Sydney, moved to Ostrava/Viktovice, Czech Republic at age 12, tried to get drafted as a professional in the Czech Extraliga, didn't get picked, so he moved to the US last year to play for the Youngstown Phantoms of the USHL and accepted the Caps invite last summer to rookie camp. Still didn't get picked, got re-invited by the Caps, and is now lighting it up against top talent in pre-season.

I hope the Caps pass around a slouch hat as a reward this year then. May as well embrace the goofy stereotypes.

Can't help but root for a guy like that.

Unless he's a dick, of course.

That's a frame-worthy quote right there.

Update on our favourite Aussie hockey player: had two straight good years in the AHL, could very well make the depleted Caps next season and make history.

Undersized pest with a smidge of offensive ability.
