Kuznetsov and Huberdeau were drafted one year apart both in the first round. Huberdeau’s first goal came on the first shot of his NHL career on his second shift. It came against Cam Ward of the Carolina Hurricanes. He finished that game with three points which jumpstarted him to a 31 point campaign in just 48 games that ended with him becoming the first Panthers player in franchise history to win the Calder Memorial Trophy as the League’s top rookie.

Kuznetsov scored arguably the biggest goal in Capitals history which occurred almost two years ago to the day. It came in overtime in Game 6 of the 2018 second round to eliminate the two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins and advanced the Capitals to the conference final for the first time since 1998.

When Kuznetsov scored that goal he unleashed the “eagle” goal celebration aka the bird celly. He does that for his daughter.
