The 21-year-old forward notably had a golden opportunity to cause a surprise during training camp in order to carve out a spot within Martin St-Louis' lineup. However, the Finn admitted that he was not quite satisfied with his recent performances, wishing to be more aggressive and contribute more offensively.
One thing is certain, Emil Heineman found a way to make his presence felt tonight, not hesitating to apply solid checks to his opponents. The veteran, TJ Brodie, notably tasted his medicine in the early first period when the young forward overturned him on the ice.
It will be very interesting to see the decision that the management will make regarding Emil Heineman. In our opinion, he deserves his place much more than his counterpart, Joel Armia, who simply shows nothing during the preseason games.
