Alumni Report: Kovacevic receiving rave reviews in Montreal
Johnathan Kovacevic is getting great reviews in Montreal since he joined the Canadiens off waivers from the Jets just before the start of the NHL Season.
From Montreal Hockey Now:
“You could argue that Kovacevic has been the Canadiens’ best defenceman from a statistical point of view.
He ranks first on the team in shot control (55.5 percent), scoring chance control (50 percent), expected goals share (53.7), and expected goals against.
He’s yet to hit the scoresheet, but it’s only fair to point out that his underlying numbers are bordering on elite, indicating that when Kovacevic is on the ice, great things happen.”
