will return to Calgary for the first time since joining the Columbus Blue Jackets this summer and is expected to get hammered by the boo-birds.
Gaudreau admitted that he understands fans' frustration on the subject
after a rough offseason. That said, nothing will save him from the wrath of Flames' fans.
As such, Gaudreau's teammates gave him a taste of what he can expect on Monday night, and it was hilarious.
Things haven't gone well for the Blue Jackets (14-30-2) this season but not because of Gaudreau. The former Flame leads Columbus in goals (13) and assists (31) and has an 18-point lead on the second best Blue Jacket.
Injuries have decimated their roster, to be fair, but their team wasn't great to begin with.
The Flames (22-16-9) are desperately feeling the absence of Johnny Gaudreau
and Matthew Tkachuk
, who combined for 219 points last season. Calgary still fields a competitive team every night, but it's hardly the same team as last year.
