John Persson scored his first NHL goal on Saturday.
It was the fifth NHL game for Persson who was selected in the fifth round of the 2011 Draft. "It's a great feeling, that's for sure," Persson said. "I wish we had come out on top, but we played a strong game. The effort was there." He had 17 goals and 29 points in 65 games with Bridgeport of the AHL this season so do not regard him as having any fantasy value. Apr 6 - 8:25 AM
