Montreal Canadiens winger Cole Caufield has transformed from star prospect to star player for the Habs in the past few weeks. The 21 year old sniper has had a terrific season at various levels, leading the NCAA in scoring before being named the Hobey Baker Award winner. He took home a gold medal from the World Juniors with an impressive two-way performance on the team’s second line. He made his pro debut with the Laval Rocket and couldn’t be contained at the AHL level.
Caufield scored a goal on two shots in Friday's 3-2 overtime win over the Golden Knights in Game 3. Nick Suzuki set up Caufield for a breakaway goal at 3:54 of the second period. The 20-year-old Caufield now has a five-game point streak, during which he's picked up two goals and three helpers. The rookie winger has seven points, 31 shots on net and an even plus-minus rating through 12 playoff outings.
