Samuel Bolduc scores his first NHL goal with the New York Islanders
< /p> UPDATE DAY
Quebec's Samuel Bolduc scored his very first National Hockey League (NHL) goal on Tuesday in New York. The Islanders guard managed to do so against the Seattle Kraken.
The 22-year-old took advantage of the presence of five players between him and Martin Jones to take a shot from the wrists of the tip that found the back of the net. He thus opened the scoring for the local favorites as he played his fourth meeting on the circuit.
