NHL debuts don’t get much more amazing than the one for Wolves defenseman Max Lajoie. When he was just 20 years old, he suited up for the Ottawa Senators on Oct. 4, 2018 against the Chicago Blackhawks. Barely 12 minutes into his career, Lajoie saw Patrick Kane turn his back to him, so he flashed into the slot, took a pass from Matt Duchene and flipped it top-shelf for a goal. Five minutes later, he set up a power-play goal for his first assist.
Hear all about the bilingual Lajoie’s terrific journey from Quebec City to Calgary to Ontario to the Wolves…and then stick around for co-host Jason Shaver’s interview with veteran center Matt Boudens. When it took extra time for this season to get underway due to the pandemic, Boudens used his college degree and took a job teaching Grade 11 English at his former high school in Ontario.
Recently, he joined the Wolves on a professional tryout contract and became the team’s only player who had suited up in Chicago prior to this season. When Boudens was with the Wolves last year, he boasted a beautiful handlebar mustache…but he explains why he doesn’t wear it any more.
