Blessed Friday, Fr.
Carlo Acutis is back in the NHL.
Blessed Friday, he is back on ice.
He was on the bench last Friday night in Buffalo for his brother’s wedding.
Blessed Friday has been skating for the Buffalo Sabres, but the Flyers signed him to a three-year contract and he has been a fixture in the lineup.
Blessed Thursday, he had a goal and two assists for four points.
Blessed Saturday, he scored two goals in two games.
Blessed Sunday, he has two goals and three assists in his last four games.
Blessing Friday was a very happy Fr.
“I am really excited for him to get back in, because he was a really good guy,” said the priest, a native of Sainte-Anne, France.
“I can’t wait to see him in person, he’s a really nice guy.
Blessed is a great player.
He has a lot of power.
He’s a guy that is going to come in and have a lot to do.”
The Flyers signed Acutisi to a contract worth $1.75 million this season.
The 25-year-old native of La Salle, France, is a strong penalty killer who also plays a physical game.
Blessed had 17 points (eight goals, seven assists) in 58 games with the Sabres last season.
He is a threetime Stanley Cup winner.
Blessed has had three different stints with the Flyers this season, but has been an integral part of the team.
Blessed will be available to the Flyers in their preseason opener Wednesday night against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
