The Great One once said “You miss 100% of the shots you never take,” and newcomer Damien Brunner sure seems to take that to heart. Two of Brunner’s greatest assets are that he isn’t scared to shoot the puck and he keeps trying until the very end (and it doesn’t hurt to have an amazing set of hands to go along with his persistance).
He had 2 goals and 2 assists in Sunday evening’s spanking of the Vancouver Canucks. He also has a team-leading 66 shots on goal this season, a 15.2 shooting percentage, and leads the team with 10 goals.
Here are a couple clips that demonstrate his awesomeness:
This Datsyuk-esque airhook goal is jaw dropping:
Now watch him dangle…
His chemistry with Zetterberg is incredible (he has assisted 7 of Brunner’s 10 goals), and their bromance is adorable. The captain always looks so proud of his rookie.
I can assure you that there’s much more to come. And for those of you who think Ken Holland would ever let this gem go…tsk tsk.
