Adam Gaudette finding ways to be useful to Canucks during scoring slump

Adam Gaudette finding ways to be useful to Canucks during scoring slump

Somewhere in upstate New York, therea€™s a car sitting on a dealera€™s lot with Adam Gaudettea€™s name on it.

Actually, we dona€™t think Gaudette has ordered vanity plates, so his name isna€™t literally on the car. But ita€™s his: a brand new Dodge Challenger, a throwback to the classic muscle cars his dad adored when Gaudette was growing up around Boston.

Ita€™s the first car the 22-year-old has owned, but he has not driven it because two days after it was ordered, Gaudette was recalled Oct. 16 from the Utica Comets as an emergency fill-in for injured centre Jay Beagle. Two weeks after that, veteran Canuck centre Brandon Sutter also went down.

The National Hockey League is the ride Gaudette is really enjoying, and he wouldna€™t trade it for his new car.

a€œMy dad likes the old classics like the Mustang and those types of cars,a€ Gaudette said this week. a€œThose were just the cars I was attracted to as well. Ia€™m not even worried about that right now. Ia€™m just going to leave it until I figure out what to do with it. I dona€™t need it right now.a€

It may be a while before Gaudette gets back to the American League.

Like his car, the centre is a bit of a throwback, too.
