Best Friends Anyone Could Have


With the recent addition to the Pittsburgh Penguins, Johnny "Hockey" Graudreau was ecstatic when he heard the news about 30 minutes before puck drop. Gaudreau commented after the game "After hearing the that we acquire Sean "Boring" Monahan, I couldn't believe I was shaking I was so happy I played my best game of the year so far." Gaudreau had 3 points with a goal and 2 assists, also had 5 shots on net also including a big hit on Ryan Mcdonagh early in the 1st period on a forecheck. Gaudreau even insisted on picking up Monahan up at the airport so they could go to his place and play some Fortnite together, before they had to go to practice in the afternoon.

After practice Monahan had to do a quick interview, one of the questions was, "Whats it like getting traded and having your bestfriend on the team already?" Monahan answered "It's pretty cool."

Head Coach Dan Bylsma was asked "If he was going to put those two on a line right away and possibly move Karlsson to the wing to play with them or have either veteran Vanek or Pominville alongside them."

Dan answered "Of course they will be playing together they are one of the best dynamic duos in the entire league when they play together, for a couple games we are going to try Karlsson on the wing but if that doesnt work out over say a 5 game span we may have to look at our other options."

After 1 game so far Monahan scored assisted by...you guessed it, Johnny Gaudreau, in a 5-3 win over the Rangers which saw a lot of depth scoring from the bottom six.

Great write-up! I hope they don't play great together though.
