MacKinnon believes Makar player right

MACKINNON BELIEVES CALE MAKAR IS THE BEST PLAYER IN THE NHL RIGHT NOW

MAY 10, 2022  (14H13)      COOPER GODIN
Colorado Avalanche defenceman Cale Makar has taken the hockey world by storm this year. In doing so, Makar earned himself a nomination for the Norris Trophy for a second consecutive season.

Makar and the Avalanche completed a first-round sweep of the Nashville Predators on Monday night and will now await the winner of the Minnesota-St. Louis series.

The 23-year-old put on a show against the Predators, putting up ten points (three goals, seven assists).

Following the game, Nathan MacKinnon told reporters that he believes Cale Makar is the best player in the National Hockey League right now.

"He might be the best player in the league right now," MacKinnon said.

He added, "The way he dominates from the back end is amazing - all season, but (in) these playoffs, he's taken another step with his leadership in the room, being more vocal, and obviously on the ice. He might be one of the best (defensemen) to ever play by the end of his career at this rate,"

The Calgary (Alberta) native finished the regular season with 86 points (28 goals, 58 assists), 26 penalty minutes and was a plus-48 in 77 games.
