SAN JOSE, California – Alexis Lafreniere will have another chance to do just that [on the] While taking his second direct appearance with Ryan Strom and Artemi Panarin.

“I have to play on the right wing and change my game a bit, it’s a little different, but I try to adapt as quickly as possible and get ready for every game,” Lafreniere said. jump out of their wing. “It’s really interesting,” he said [playing on that line]”Obviously, Non is one of the best players in the league, so it’s good to be on the ice with him.”

Lafreniere set Strom to create a great opportunity on the right porch just 35 seconds before Monday’s game in Los Angeles, but Strom was stoned by network manager Kal Petersen. After that, the unit did not produce much. Panarin missed his first game after four games, according to the COVID protocol, and Strom played his second ineffective game in a row after a protest in Anaheim on Saturday.

In fact, as noted by NaturalStatTrick, the lineup had a Corsi rating of 33 percent at 12:51 in a five-game losing streak to the Kings, with two goals (for none) and a negative five (1/6) high risk. opportunities. The game against the Sharks will not be repeated on Thursday.

When the training session opened, the plan was for Lafreniere to turn right and skate with Mika Zibanejad and Chris Kreider. But Lafreniere was not so comfortable outside his wing. The experiment ended as quickly as it began. But while Panarin and Kreider are at the top of the left-wing depth chart, playing on the right wing represents the most logical path that would take Lafreniere to the sixth role.

“I’ve played on the left wing all my life, I’ve been more comfortable there, but I’m ready to move to the right wing and play the best hockey I can,” Lafreniere said. “Obviously going back to your destiny is a little different and it may take a few games, but I’m happy with that.”

“We have a couple of guys out of the game, so I learn from them. That’s not crazy. “


Igor Shesterkin, who signed up for the COVID protocol on Jan. 6, was not cleared until Wednesday and therefore did not exercise. This is the fifth time in a row that Alex Georgiev has made his NHL career and is likely to finish 11th in the club’s last 16 games. Kate Kinkaid remains on the list with Tyler Wall, who has joined the group of taxi drivers. … Adam Fox did not skate during the “service” on Wednesday, but he is expected to play on Thursday. … Ryan Reeves, Julien Gotier and Barclay Goodrow remained under the COVID protocol. … Rangers added Justin Richards to the taxi ranks.
