Theoren Fleury praises Cole Caufield

Cole Caufield has only played 30 games in the National Hockey League and he is already turning a lot of heads! The 2021-2022 season hasn't even started yet and the number 22's jersey sales keep increasing. His playoff performances have helped him tremendously, as he has four goals and eight assists in 20 playoff games.

Speaking on Georges Laraque's show on 91.9 Sports today, former Calgary Flames player Theoren Fleury took the opportunity to throw a lot of praise to the Habs new darling. What's special about Fleury and Caufield is that the two men are about the same size with only an inch difference.

The man who scored 1,088 points in the Bettman circuit admitted that Caufield had already had a lot of success in the NHL and that he was starting his career off on the right foot. Fleury now wonders if the 2019 first-round pick will be able to maintain that pace over a full 82-game season.

Still according to Fleury, the Canadiens' small forward has all the tools to succeed in this league. "He has the talent, he has the skills, he has the speed and he has the shot," he said. "It's just a matter of finding the best way to play in the NHL to have maximum success."

With comments like that, how can you not be excited about the man nicknamed Goal Caufield? Will the Habs finally be able to select a first round pick who will be able to make a significant impact on their team for the first time since Max Pacioretty and Carey Price? Fans are starting to believe it!
