    It's great to have another goal scorer. Big body hits and shots which is exactly the type of player the ducks needed. Didn't make many mistakes for a rookie

    I'm so happy for Maxime. From the day one he looked like a boy with the right mindset and the tools to succeed. He went through a tough year - fortunate for us - and came back strong. I like that and in every interview he sounds dedicated. I really like him a lot. I wonder how a line of him and Ritchie on the wings would look like.

    Habs are probably wishing they drafted him or any French Canadian who can score.

    Ducks didn't have a 1st round pick in 2017, no problem they'll just pick Comtois in the 2nd round who has 1st round talent.

    He looks like Rakell

    Let`s remember he is young and still eligible for WJC`s. In a few years he will be a very strong dude, he`s a very exciting prospect. Cool that he got first goal on his first shot, that`s pretty biblical.

    Last night he reminded me of Bobby Ryan, a better skating version. Big dude with excellent puck skills and a great shot, not too physical. The puck followed him around.

    He is known as a physical player in juniors, but obviously as a 19 yo he struggles against NHL guys. I think he will gonna take a few years and will be able to throw some good hits, if necessary.
    I didn`t notice but how was his board battles?

    He was pretty good along the boards. He's not weak. It's just that, like Bobby, he doesn't finish a lot of checks, at least not right now. Just skates on by. Some of it is probably a healthy fear of not getting caught behind the play.

    Happy that he's putting some pressure on Ritchie.

    On the other hand...couldn't they come up with a better nickname? :laugh:

    Pahlsson took it with him when he ascended to Valhalla.

    I dunno I thought he was one of Anaheim's better forwards last night. When judging his performance in the scope of the entire roster, he was one of the more consistent guys at not making mistakes under pressure.

    I think we all knew that puck skills were his strong suit.

    What blows me away is how good of a skater he is already.

    I’m honestly not sure if going back to juniors does him any good at all. It’s too bad he can’t play in the AHL if needed this year

    That's what has me excited about Comtois he seems to have that total package of size, skill and speed (at least at Junior level) and in terms of speed and size he certainly didn't look out of place at the NHL level - jury still out on the skill part but he had some pretty handy plays (that pass to Silf was very good) against San Jose.

    I have a feeling in a couple of years that Comtois will be the player Anaheim were expecting/hoping for when they drafted Ritchie.

    Once he matures he'll become Maxime Comvous.

    How many players in NHL history have scored on their first shot, on their first shift, in their NHL debut?

    I know that Toews scored on his first shot but I`m not sure if that was his first shift. There should be some statistics about this.

    Lemieux is the most famous one. First shift he stripped the puck from Ray Bourque and scored on his first shot.

    Comtois scored the 6th fastest first goal in NHL history. Pretty cool stat to hang his hat on.

    According to the register he scored 4 seconds into his first shift, which somehow is only the sixth fastest first goal.

    Edit- didn't see static had posted above, but still.

    They must be going by game time instead of shift time. No way five guys have scored faster than 4 seconds ito their shift

    Barring him completely falling off in the next few games Murray needs to ignore the 9 game tryout limit and worry about decisions when it gets to the 40 game mark. Burning a year off his elc isn’t the worst thing, ufa years are more important.
