Suspended 1 game for an illegal hit. His first suspension (UMass or NHL) as far as a I can determine.

^ You’d think that with the money that Cale Makar makes, he would be able to get a real haircut 😁……or at least a comb……

Cale Makar will be on the cover of EA Sports NHL 24. What an accomplishment!'

Pretty awesome to have a UMass athlete on the cover of one of those EA games. :D :D

Cale just went end to end from behind his own goal to score. It was like one on five. One of the great goals I have seen. The Avs lead the game 4-1 (and will lead the series 3-1) after two. Cale has his goal and (I think) two assists.

"Jack didn’t have any envy in him," Calipari said. "He was the greatest coach to ever coach here."

^ Here's a video of the goal. We all saw him do it to college players but no way this should be done to NHL players. He's that special.

That was the most Bobby Orr rush up ice since Bobby Orr. We were so privileged to have had the opportunity to watch Cale here.

Wow, he made it look almost effortless!
All due respect, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart, I'm gonna pass.

^ Agreed. He's so smooth.

The Avs are fun to watch. I like the way they play. Love to seem them in the finals against he B's.

I will say this however, as much as I like the Bruins, I tend to look for teams with UMass guys on their roster to follow.
