Lane Hutson played his first NHL career game on Monday night. Now, it's time to take stock of his debut, and Bob Hartley believes he will be a nightmare.

Indeed, the former coach compared the defenseman to Johnny Gaudreau in his early days with the Calgary Flames.

His changes in direction and skating skills, as well as his offensive abilities, are undoubtedly ready for the NHL.

Hartley even added that it will be a real nightmare for opposing wingers to cover Lane Hutson.


The expression "breaking ankles" takes on its full meaning, as Lane is likely to make more than one fall with his changes of direction.
