Read on for all the latest Predator news!
Neither the Bruins nor the Blues (both teams sit behind only the Panthers for tops in the NEFHL) could muster up any offence against Garon and the mighty Predators defence!
Asked to comment on his recent successes, Garon said "I couldn't of done it without the stellar dmen skating in front of me...Boyle, Ohlund, Souray, the whole gang, they take away all the real threats and make my job easy!"
GM Mathieu was overheard pushing for Garon to be an early Vezina finalist amongst the hockey circles. Asked for comment, he said "We dealt Giguere for Shawn Horcoff in the offseason because we felt that Mathieu Garon had all the tools needed to be a successful starter in the NEFHL this season and we were confident in the group of dmen that skate in front of him. To boot, Horcoff has been huge for us this year, currently leading our team in scoring with 12 points in our first 10 games."
With an upcoming game against the Red Wings look for coach Dave Lewis to give the youngster Garon the night off. Asked why, he said "I know Garon has the hot hands right now, but he's been playing a lot lately and I don't want his endurance to suffer more than it already has. Plus he wasn't too hot back in the first few games of the season when we lost to Detroit 3 times in the first 5 games. Chris Osgood gives us fresh legs and veteran presence and he was solid for us in a win a few games back. He should be in nets against Detroit tomorrow."
