Compher Scores Two Shorthanded Goals in Same PK Shift for Avs

November 24, 2018 1:37 pm

SCOTTSDALE, AZ – J.T. Compher didn’t tiptoe his way into his first game in nearly six weeks. Instead, he jumped right in with two short-handed goals in the first period.

Compher tallied twice in a matter of 1:25 during a Colorado Avalanche penalty kill to jumpstart the club in a 5-1 victory over the Arizona Coyotes on Friday at Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona. The forward is only the 20th NHL player since 1933-34 to score two short-handed markers in a span of two minutes or less and just the fourth to do it in the last 15 years.

One of the greatest things about Kurt and all the people with KO is that they bring in guys like Barry Karn and all these different skating and skill people that come in and help us to develop. They care about us off the ice but they obviously have to care about us on the ice and they bring in people to work with us to help us be better and I think that’s special.
