Sammy Walker is as good as advertised. So is his Hornets hockey team.

Sammy Walker jarred the puck free and ignited his turbo boost to create a breakaway for himself. Then he did something really cool.

He slowed up and waited for linemate Jett Jungels to catch up.

“You have a better chance of scoring when you have a 2-on-0 than a 1-on-0,” Walker said. “So I just figured I would wait for him.”

Star Tribune sports columnist Chip Scoggins, fresh off back-to-back assignments covering the Super Bowl and the Winter Olympics, spent some time with the Edina flash. Read his column here.
