Jonathan Huberdeau had a foul first season in Calgary. We thought the shock of being traded from the Panthers to the Flames and taking part in for an old-school
fashionable coach had affected him final 12 months…
However now, regardless of the change of coach, it’s clear that Huberdeau has misplaced his method. He was just lately benched for the whole third interval of a recreation, which is a powerful gesture.
In accordance with Gilbert Delorme, his lack of effort is in charge. However in actuality, regardless of the purpose, it’s time for him to rise up and get his act collectively.
At $10.5 million for almost eight extra years, he’s acquired to ship the products.
