Memorable Monday: Silfverberg\'s First NHL Goal



We’re in the offseason, which means we finally have time to look back on the whirling dervish that was the 2013 season. As far as 58 games in the span of five months goes, you’d be hard pressed to find a lull at any point over the course of the season.

As such, we’re going to be taking a look back on the season with its best moments starting from the beginning. Come along...

Regular Season Game 2: vs. Florida

There were plenty of exciting young players in the Sens lineup to start this season, but given that nobody had any idea what was coming down the road, a fair amount of attention was affixed to Jakob Silfverberg. The 22-year-old Swede had played a pair of games in the 2012 playoffs after being named the Elitserien MVP, being named the Elitserien Playoffs MVP, captaining Brynas and breaking Daniel Alfredsson’s (!) playoff goal record.

His full-time arrival was exciting, and with good reason.

While he ultimately was joined by plenty of other fresh faces, he got his inaugural season off to a great start thanks to some good puck play in the Panthers’ zone, a nice pass from Jason Spezza and a quick release that fooled Jose Theodore.

Take a look...

Silfverberg finished the season as one of five NHL rookies to hit double digits in goals and established himself as a reliable player in all situations -- he averaged the most shorthanded ice time of any rookie winger in the league. With the first year of North American hockey under his belt, expect Silfverberg’s game to continue to grow going forward.

And, as that process goes forward, we can all hope that this song eventually catches on inside Scotiabank Place:
