"NEW YORK. Vancouver Canucks 19-year-old målvaktslöfte Michael DiPietro got a brutal mardrömsstart on the NHL career point in the night."
"He had to debut against the San Jose Sharks at short notice – and let in the first shot he got. As well as the third."
"Before the merciless sharks from California were ready, they had pounded out a total of seven pucks on the youth."
"– But it was still a dream that struck out for me. I will learn a lot of this, " he says bravely."
"It was meant that Jacob Markström, as usual, would stand for the Canucks in the home match against San Jose, but shortly before the face-off showed that he could not play because of a ”thightness” in the lower part of the body."
"Since the regular reserve, Thatcher Demko, is also damaged it was, therefore, only for Michael DiPietro – 19-year-old who was playing junior hockey as recently as a few weeks ago and never been in the vicinity of service in the NHL to ask itself in the bag."
"And he got a start on the big stage he will never forget. Unfortunately. Already the first shot he got on it, fired by Timo Meier, went in. Just a minute later, waving himself into a lob Evander Kane had sent against the cage. And before the first period reached the half-time had Melker Karlsson steered into 3-0-also."
"– We said that we would test him right away and we did , " says the ”Melkman” to NBC in California."
"They will be relieved not on the gas during the remainder of the game and eventually won with 7-2."
"”Directly from junior hockey to the NHL”"
"Young DiPietro is, however, a great acknowledge the moment."
"– You never want to let in the first shot, but to start a LEAGUE match was still a dream that struck out for me. I thought it went better the longer the match point and I will learn a lot of this, " he says to the club's website."
"He can also console itself with lagkamraternas unquestioning support."
" It's not easy to get directly from junior hockey to the NHL and the truth is that we let him hang in the wind on some of those objectives. We gave them too many grade A chances. Our effort was simply not good enough, say, for example, Bo Horvat."
"the Canucks fans had little to rejoice in, but they got to see the new darling Elias Pettersson hit a drömpassning to a goal that just Horvat dotted in in the end of the first period."
