The NHL pause may have cost Bryan Rust a shot at reaching the 30-goal milestone for the first time.
Rust had 27 goals and 56 points in 55 games. Those are career-highs for the 27-year-old, but if not for the coronavirus forcing the league to suspend play, Rust likely would have hit a major milestone. “I try not to think about it,” Rust said. “I think for me personally, it’s been a really good year, and I’ve been taking it in stride one day at a time and I haven’t given that any thought. Just trying to see where this whole covid thing goes and the temporary stoppage of play, and if we get back to the season.” Regardless of what ends up happening with the 2019-20 campaign, Rust will be task with trying to live up to the new standard he set for himself in 2020-21.
