Obviously, a disappointing 4-3 loss to the New York Rangers on Sunday stinks in the face of Columbus Blue Jackets rookie Adam Fantilli.
Although he has only fifteen games of experience in the National Hockey League, the third pick in the 2023 draft is already having a hard time taking the failures of his team, the last in the Metropolitan with a record of 4-7. 4. The Jackets saw Alexis Lafrenière ruin their night when he scored the game-tying goal late in the third quarter, followed by another in the shootout. Head coach Pascal Vincent’s side have won just one of their last 10 games, not a good way to qualify for the playoffs.
“We are a young team, but that doesn’t matter. I hate failure, I never want to lose. I don’t want to get used to defeat. “I’m not happy about that, or the run of defeats we’ve had,” he told The Athletic.

With four goals and five assists this season, Fantilli just wants to contribute to the winning streak as quickly as possible. “I want to be able to solve it and do my part to fix the situation,” insisted the 19-year-old hockey player. We have a young but extremely talented group. I think we have the potential to be much better.”
The Ohio club will host the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday.
