[Highlight] Jesperi Kotkaniemi opens the scoring in his return

New, comment

In his first game back from a concussion, Jesperi Kotkaniemi didn’t waste any time making a difference.

NHL: New Jersey Devils at Montreal Canadiens Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports

Well, the Montreal Canadiens must be very happy to have Jesperi Kotkaniemi back in the lineup. In a huge game against the Tampa Bay Lightning, he opened the scoring with a seeing eye shot.

Stepping in with the puck near the top of the circle, he used the screen to fire it past Andrei Vasilevskiy and make it 1-0 for Montreal.

Great to see him back, and in great form.
