Five Questions: Jets' Maurice finds fast success

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NHL.com's weekly Q&A feature called "Five Questions With ..." runs every Tuesday. We talk to key figures in the game today and ask them questions to gain insight into their lives, careers and the latest news.

The latest edition features Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice:

He's seven games into his tenure as the coach of the Winnipeg Jets and so far it's been all good for Paul Maurice.

The Jets are 6-1-0 since Maurice replaced Claude Noel. They've scored 24 goals and allowed only 13. They became the first team this season to beat the Anaheim Ducks in regulation at Honda Center. Their lone loss was a 1-0 defeat on the road against the San Jose Sharks. They're coming off what can only be described as a huge and surprising 3-1 win against the Chicago Blackhawks at United Center on Sunday.

Chicago outshot Winnipeg 27-6 through 40 minutes but Jets goalie Al Montoya was spectacular and Winnipeg found some breaks in the third to get the win. Andrew Ladd scored the winning goal around two from Blake Wheeler.

After being out of the NHL for more than two years Maurice clearly has a lot to talk about now. We gave him the opportunity.

Canadiens prospect Hudon deals with hectic month

The past month has been quite a whirlwind for 19-year old Montreal Canadiens prospect Charles Hudon.

As if playing for Hockey Canada at the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship in Malmo, Sweden wasn't enough pressure, the 5-foot-10, 171-pound forward, selected in the fifth round (No. 122) in the 2012 NHL Draft, was traded from his Quebec Major Junior Hockey League team, the Chicoutimi Sagueneens, to the Baie-Comeau Drakkar on Dec. 20. Hudon was overseas when he got the news and admitted it took him by surprise.

"It was tough," Hudon said. "Chicoutimi was my home and I loved it there. It was very tough. But playing for Team Canada at the time made it a bit easier and they gave me a good welcome here in Baie-Comeau by the players and the team and I'm excited to be playing here now."

Quote of the Day

I just think about how much it hurts. The feelings aren't going to go away, probably never. It's just something that sticks with you for a long time.
