DeBrincat helps Chicago beat Montreal 3-1
(MONTREAL) - It was only a matter of time before Alex DeBrincat scored his first NHL goal. The 5 foot 7 right winger, who was a scoring machine for the Erie Otters in junior hockey, got his first as a Blackhawk and set up one for Artem Anisimov as the Chicago Blackhawks spoiled the Montreal Canadiens' home opener with a 3-1 victory on Tuesday night. And tallying his first against a Vezina Trophy winner like Carey Price made it that much better. The 19 year old DeBrincat was drafted 39th overall by Chicago in 2016, on a pick obtained in a trade from Montreal, in the midst of a junior career that saw him score 167 goals in 193 games over three seasons for Erie. Last season, he was voted top player in the Ontario Hockey League after a 65-goal season. Brandon Saad also scored for Chicago (3-0-1), which was coming off an overtime loss Monday night in Toronto. Tomas Plekanec scored for Montreal (1-3-0) when he picked off a Ryan Hartman pass in the Blackhawks zone, wheeled and scored on a wrist shot inside the near post 1:15 into the game.
