WHO NEEDS A MOUTHGUARD?
Matthew Tkachuk moved the puck away from Toronto Maple Leafs forward Alexander Kerfoot in Game 4 of the 2023 Eastern Conference Second Round. Tkachuk was certainly one of Florida’s best players in the playoffs, but what’s up with his mouthguard? Turns out he and his brother Brady grew up big fans of Chicago Blackhawks star Patrick Kane, who also played with the mouthguard half in and half out. In the 2023 postseason, Tkachuk channeled Kane and the playoff heroics that won him three Stanley Cups. Will Tkachuk lift Lord Stanley next?
