Slovak forward Juraj Slafkovsky, the first overall pick in the recent National Hockey League draft, scored a goal in the opening seconds of a Montreal Canadiens intrasquad game on Wednesday , in Brossard.
This game took place as part of the Habs development camp, of which it was the last day.
Remember that the first day on Sunday was devoted to testing and off-ice training. The development camp continued until Wednesday with sessions on the ice, in two groups, and an intra-squad game during which Slafkovsky, 18, has already taken the opportunity to make fans dream.
In the draft on Thursday, July 7, the Canadiens preferred to select Slafkovsky, a left winger, rather than center Shane Wright, who was finally called up to fourth overall by the Seattle Kraken.
