May 3, JVR Lives up to Expectations… and Then Some

Hey Guys,

James Van Riemsdyk of the Philadelphia Flyers is keeping his team in the series, and in the playoffs in general with little help from his supporting cast. JVR is tied for the NHL lead in playoff goals with teammate Danny Briere at seven. The 2010-11 season has been the first of Van Riemsdyk’s professional career, and he is already showing signs of why he was so highly touted all those years ago in the draft. Taken with the second pick overall in the 2007 NHL draft behind only fellow American Patrick Kane, JVR has made it clear that although Kane got they head start, he can hang with the best. Check out this insane goal he scored back when we was playing with UNH:

Last night Van Riemsdyk lit up the scoreboard for the Flyers scoring their only two goals of the game. His first came within 30 seconds of the start of the game. Take a look at the early goal:

I never have had the chance to meet Van Riemsdyk, but we are the same age, and from the same hometown. It’s great to see him out there doing such a fine job at the highest level. Keep it up James.
