Johnny Gaudreau's Hilarious Reaction to Blue Jackets' Cannon

Back during the 2018-19 season, Johnny Gaudreau was famously scared by the Columbus Blue Jackets' cannon. It appears that the cannon's blast still occasionally startles the star winger even after signing with the team. While speaking with reporters after Sunday's preseason game against the Pittsburgh Penguins, Johnny Hockey said that the cannon "got him" twice during the game.

When remembering that Gaudreau signed a seven-year, $68.25 million contract with the Blue Jackets this summer, this is something that he is going to hear quite a lot of. This is especially true when noting that he is coming off of a 115-point season. Needless to say, he creates plenty of offense, and every time the Blue Jackets score, the cannon will go off. 

All jokes aside, Gaudreau left a great first impression in his first preseason game as a Blue Jacket. A three-assist performance isn't too shabby, and he will be aiming to translate that to the regular season once it begins.
