First-year Beast skater David Pacan was acquired by the team this past offseason with the hope he would deliver the same consistent scoring punch that he did with the South Carolina Stingrays during the 2015-16 season. He is more than delivering on that promise as he is on pace to produce nearly 30 more goals and points than the 20 and 62 he registered last year.
He has enjoyed so many dominant nights through 25 games of the current ECHL campaign, but his most electric performance thus far came against the Adirondack Thunder on December 15 as he recorded a natural hat trick to lead the Beast to a huge 5-2 victory over their bitter rival the Adirondack Thunder.
Each of the three goals showcased different elements of the Ottawa native’s game
· The first goal exhibited his vision and his whirlwind speed as he created a partial breakaway by being in the right spot at center ice to intercept a stretch pass before he outhustled the Adirondack defense to shoot on, and bury his own rebound past Thunder goaltender Mason McDonald.
· The second marker highlighted his tenacity in front of the net as he fought off abuse by the Thunder defenders to pick up a loose puck in the crease to jam it into his opponent’s cage.
· The hat trick tally highlighted his tremendous shot as he cleanly beat McDonald with a lightning-fast Joe-Sakic-like wrist shot from the right faceoff circle that picked the top corner of the net.
