Nice Moment Between Ehlers and Perfetti Goes Viral

That's my boy! That's my star! 🤩


The cute moment between the two quickly made its rounds online, as Ehlers has struggled to start the year. Clearly, he was relieved and shared that in a moment with Perfetti on the bench.

Turnaround Game For Ehlers Last Night



After the game, Jets associate coach Scott Arniel shared his thoughts on how he thought Ehlers played during the game.

I thought that was (Ehlers') best game of the year. He's had a little trouble here getting going with him missing all of training camp. He skated great, he held onto pucks and made really good plays.»

Ehlers has been upfront about his slow start to the year, not recording a single goal in his first 6 games, and breaking that streak last night.

«I hadn't really been close in any games, to be honest,»

For the Jets, getting Ehlers going will be a crucial part of continuing their recent success, as they are now on a three-game winning streak. They hope to continue that streak tomorrow night against the Canadiens.
