PLAYERS: Michael St.Croix
Michael St. Croix is building on what was a breakout year for him last season as he now has four points through the first two games of the WHL season. Three of those points have come from goals, and he scored two of those goals yesterday against the Red Deer Rebels. Here's video of the two goals. Though he definitely got a favorable bounce on the first goal, you have to like how he shields the puck and uses his body to get around the guy marking him (#12). One of the biggest knocks on St. Croix has been his hesitence to go to the dirty areas and battle for pucks, so it's nice to see him position himself in the high slight and work to get his own rebound on the second goal. St. Croix scored in the first game by similarly crashing the slot and gathering a rebound, and if he continues to do this and makes it a part of his game then his chances of becoming a productive player in the NHL are that much better.  Follow Me On Twitter: @Herman_NYRBlog Email...
