After a rather surprising training camp where a strong chemistry was forming with Kirby Dach, Juraj Slafkovsky has been in a bit of a slump since the injury to number 77. In Toronto, during the first game of the season, this trio was clearly the best on the ice at five-on-five.

Unfortunately, Dach's injury has had a negative impact on the team and on Juraj, who hasn't been the same since. He has made some nice plays but often tries to feed a struggling teammate, Josh Anderson, who is also having trouble finding the back of the net.

This has resulted in a lack of confidence, and Slaf doesn't shoot on goal as often, desperately seeking to connect with a teammate and making one pass too many most of the time. But there is room for development.

As reported by TVA Sports, Kirby Dach watches all the games of the young number 20 and offers him advice. He is very committed to taking him under his wing and helping him despite his own injury.


"Since he was injured, he has tried to help me as best he can. He watches my matches and offers me advice on how to improve. But I hope that in the future we can play together again."

- Juraj Slafkovsky

It's a credit to him that, despite his own injury, he has decided to stay involved rather than distance himself from the team or return home during his recovery.
