We just learned a big surprise involving Nick Suzuki and Jesperi Kotkaniemi: the Montreal Canadiens may have been right

We knew that Jesperi Kotkaniemi has had a very good start to the season in Carolina, but his success with the Hurricanes dates back much further than that.
Not only does KK indeed have a strong start to the season, with his 12 points (including 5 goals) in 12 games, but in addition, take a look at the following statistic.
It's very surprising.
A statistic that is a big surprise. You read that right.
Over their last 63 games played, Kotkaniemi has more points accumulated than Nick Suzuki. Wow.
Kotkaniemi has 48 points in his last 63 games played.
Suzuki has 46 points in his last 63 games played.
Let's just say that the contract for 4.82 million per year, signed by KK with the Hurricanes, looks extremely good after a year. A deal valid until 2030!
Clearly, the Canadiens' 3rd overall pick in 2018 has found his footing. It's encouraging for a youngster like Juraj Slafkovsky.
