Newhook had a power-play assist and blocked one shot over 14:46 of ice time in Monday's 3-1 win over Buffalo.

Newhook, working the point, initiated a brisk tic-tac-toe sequence that ended with Tanner Pearson burying an insurance goal with three minutes left in the game. It was the first power-play point for Newhook, who has been thrust into an important role in a hockey hotbed. The 22-year-old is centering the second line, taking over for the injured Kirby Dach (knee), and is tasked with helping guide the development of the team's top prospect, 19-year-old Juraj Slafkovsky. Newhook has four points, seven shots on goal and four PIM through five games while averaging a career-high 15:44 TOI, including 2:07 on the power play.
