VJW Alum Colin Blackwell Scores 1st NHL Goal

It's been a memorable start to 2020 for VJW Alum Colin Blackwell. Colin started the year off by playing in the Winter Classic in front of over 85,000 fans. Just over a week later he is scoring his first-career NHL goal on a feed from Yakov Trenin...going top shelf to beat Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford.

"Honestly, I kind of blacked out," Blackwell laughed. "It's one of those things where just to get that monkey off your back… Playing some games last year and then being up here for a little while now, I've had some chances and finally put one in the back of the net. It definitely felt pretty good, so I just kind of let out a little bit of emotion."
