The regular season of the National Hockey League did not begin until last Wednesday, but already, former Montreal Canadians forward Max Pasioretti has started scoring goals and the Vegas Golden Knights are hoping he will continue to pace. Around the opponent’s net.
The American surpassed every mark in his first three games. After scoring against the Anaheim Ducks on Thursday and Saturday, he did it again with the Arizona Coyotes 4-2 on Monday. Passioretti also woke up his side to two goals behind in midfield. He pulled back his throw to beat goaltender Darcy Kuimper from a tight angle. Subsequently, his teammates did the rest of the work with three goals in a row in the final commitment.
The veteran is also a reason for the Knights to be perfect after three games. With a difference of +4, he has nothing to be ashamed of so far and as of Tuesday, he is one of only 12 hockey players to score three goals and a top in the Betman Tour.
At such a rate, the 67th would clearly have no trouble surpassing his career goals, but with a 56-game schedule, there is reason to doubt it. However, those who like the statistics have identified his best harvest date since he threaded the needle 39 times from 2013-2014. He has scored at least 30 goals in six seasons.
Passioretti and the Knights have three more games against the Coyotes on schedule these days. They will meet in Nevada on Wednesday before heading to Glendale for two meetings on Friday and Sunday.
