Phantoms Playoffs: Tyson Foerster Scores 2 Goals in Playoff Debut
Tyson Foerster, who went 23rd overall in 2020, and recently impressed in his first 8 NHL games (7 points), is now continuing to turn heads in the AHL with 2 goals in his playoff debut. The toe-drag, Auston Matthews-type shot is something Tyson has really improved on year after year.
CAN I SAY ELITE? AHH. WHAT A SHOT.
Foerster finished 1st on the Phantoms in points with 20G-28A-48P in 66 games this year. He was finally able to have a healthy regular-season after dealing with injuries in consecutive years.
It’s not a secret that Foerster had a nice shot. It was the main attraction for scouts goings into the 2020 draft and a vocal point for Chuck Fletcher and Brent Flahr whenever they addressed Tyson in a public matter. His skating was a concern, but it’s not anymore. He’s proved that despite not being the best skater in the world, he’s smart enough to know where he needs on the ice, which makes up for his lack of foot speed.
Game 1 win for the Phantoms on the shoulders of a Tyson Foerster 2-goal game, an Olle Lycksell 2 assist game, an Adam Brooks 2-point game, and last but not least, a Cooper Marody 2-point game.
Exactly how you drew it up right?
Bobby Brink and Emil Andrae both had solid games but didn’t find themselves on the scoresheet. Game 2 is on Thursday when the Phantoms will look to end the series.
