Konopka Gets His First NHL Goal!

Thanks to a blog reader who emailed us the news this morning, we see that former 67s captain and all-around super guy, Zenon Konopka, scored his first NHL goal last night. Congrats! Hopefully this is just the beginning of a great NHL career. A snippet from the game recap (link):
The Ducks, with goals in the game from rookies Ryan Getzlaf (2) and Zenon Konopka, rallied from a two-goal deficit in the second period to eventually force the extra hockey.


Konopka’s goal, (1, Pahlsson, Marshall) at 2:08 of the second, was the first of his NHL career.
I've never seen another player with Konopka's work ethic and drive, his leadership abilities. Any team would benefit from having him around. It's really good to see him progressing.
