A very sad observation for Jonathan Huberdeau, who is clearly not doing well

Since his arrival in Calgary last year, Jonathan Huberdeau has been simply unrecognizable. After a season with 115 points in 2021-22, he had a sharp decline with only 55 points last year, and it's even worse this year.

In 12 games, the forward has managed a meager six points and holds a -12 plus/minus rating. For a player earning 10.5 million, it's clearly insufficient.

In an interview this summer, Huberdeau admitted that last year, he lost all motivation to go to the arena. He didn't feel good on and off the ice. The trade that sent him from the Panthers to the Flames hit him hard.

According to several reports, it was the Darryl Sutter effect, but the Flames' coach has been fired. In his own words, Jonathan mentioned that he was now more motivated than ever and was looking forward to the new season.


Last night, the St-Jérôme native was benched for the entire third period. He didn't touch the ice at all. Clearly, something is amiss with him, and one can wonder if he is doing well.

Talent doesn't just disappear. Jonathan doesn't need anyone to produce on the ice; he is capable of being dominant. He is clearly not in a good place right now, and we sincerely hope that he will find happiness and his love for hockey again because when he plays to his full potential, he is undoubtedly the best Quebec-born player in the entire NHL.

IN YOUR OPINION, CAN JONATHAN HUBERDEAU BECOME THE DOMINANT PLAYER HE WAS WITH THE PANTHERS ONCE AGAIN?
