Embarrassing photo involving Mike Hoffman goes viral, during game against Avalanche

It was a game to forget for Martin St-Louis' team yesterday, when nothing seemed to be going right for them.

Of course, with so many players injured, it's normal to see the team fail, despite all the good will of the remaining members of the decimated line-up.

There are players on the roster who always give their all, in both directions of the ice, and there are others for whom involvement is sometimes more difficult in certain situations.

One of the specialists in this second category for the Tricolore is forward Mike Hoffman.


In fact, journalist Simon-Olivier Lorange of La Presse published a photo that quickly went viral about Hoffman and his teammate Josh Anderson.

"Sense of urgency from Josh Anderson and Mike Hoffman: low." - Simon-Olivier Lorange


As we can see from the photo, the reaction of #68 is downright embarrassing.

Instead of trying to make a defensive play, or at least trying to show that he is at least a little bit involved, Hoffman lets himself slide, making him completely useless on the sequence.

We could add Anderson in the same boat, but he was Hoffman's man to cover in the first place. He could have come in and doubled Hoffman's coverage, sure, but in the end, that wasn't his original assignment.

With such an image, we can easily understand why the team conceded 8 goals to the opponent last night at the Bell Center.
