Here's new evidence that Martin St-Louis is genuinely authentic. Juraj Slafkovsky's development has been significant over the past few months.

His performance in the second half of the season has been particularly impressive and seems to align with his promotion to the first line of the club alongside Cole Caufield and Nick Suzuki.

Think Martin didn't contribute? Think again.

In a recent press conference, Martin St-Louis' successor, Trevor Letowski, mentioned that the two linemates greatly helped the young forward's development. Indeed, Nick and Cole have been a strong support for Slaf both on and off the ice.

"Martin had several discussions with Nick and Cole about helping Juraj during his tougher moments. Today, I can say that Slaf has grown a lot." - Trevor Letowski


Regarding on-ice performance, an RDS statistic reveals that the CH's first line is highly productive. The three forwards alone have scored 61 goals, which is 8 more than the total scored by the club's other three lines. A quick calculation shows that the Slaf-Nick-Cole line accounts for nearly 42% of the CH's goals this season.


The hope is for consistency from the three members of this line not just in upcoming games but in the years to come. Just imagine when Cole Caufield gets back into scoring form. Maybe then it'll be Slafkovsky who returns the favor, helping him snap out of any slump!
