Connor Hellebuyck had a performance for the ages last night, in the Winnipeg Jets’ 2-1 overtime loss at the T-Mobile Arena against the Vegas Golden Knights.
Earlier this morning, I highlighted Hellebuyck’s performance as the number one talking point from the Jets vs. Golden Knights game.
The Jets were heavily outplayed in the game including being outshot 18-4 in the first period and 15-4 in the second period. Ultimately the Jets were outshot 48-24 and the fact that they earned a point in this game was incredible and they have Hellebuyck to thank for that.
Twitter has reacted to Connor Hellebuyck’s performance in the Winnipeg Jets’ loss against the Golden Knights
Twitter was in awe of Hellebuyck’s game in Las Vegas and the first tweet called this a Jets “goaltending performance for the ages” before the game even concluded:
The next tweet is a perfect summary of how Hellebuyck played against Vegas. This was a performance that only very few goaltenders have in a season.
Our own contributor, Brian Finlayson, had a simple tweet about Hellebuyck for this game. Nothing else needed to be said, Hellebuyck was the star of the game.
I think many people would agree with this next Tweet. Hellebuyck was the reason the Jets secured a point to conclude their road trip.
This tweet looks at the way the game ended for the Jets’ netminder and I couldn’t agree more. Jack Eichel took advantage of a tired Jets group and made a great move around Hellebuyck to win this game in overtime.
Connor Hellebuyck’s last three outings have been outstanding as he picked up his first shutout of the season against the St. Louis Blues, then picked up 40 saves in the win against the Los Angeles Kings, and finally made 46 saves versus Vegas.

Hellebuyck will look to keep this great run of form up when the Winnipeg Jets host the Montreal Canadiens this Thursday night at the Canada Life Centre.
