    Patrik Laine with the 5 bagger wins fan 1 million canadian dollars

    Laine's five-goal outburst gives him a league-leading 16 goals in 10 November games.
    It also earned one fan a giant payday, thanks to a contest put on by Sobeys/Safeway supermarkets. According to the "Score & Win" contest's website, a contestant is selected before every Jets, Vancouver Canucks, Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames game, and a $1 million prize (Canadian dollars, equivalent to nearly $756,000 U.S.) was set to be awarded if any player on those teams scored five goals in a game.

    Yeah thats a nice little $core. Just a heads up though, that prize is paid out at $50k per year for 20 years.

    And scoring 5 goals in today's NHL setting is really difficult.

    Agreed, I would not complain, I'm just saying that $1k a week is not really a big windfall. It's a nice little score.
