Patrik Laine wants to take his show on the road.

The Winnipeg Jets' rookie sensation has thrilled home fans this season, but that same scorer's touch hasn't been present outside of Manitoba.

With 17 goals, he trails only Sidney Crosby and David Pastrnak - both with 18 - for the league lead. Of those 17, though, all but three have come at the MTS Centre.

"I just want to succeed. It doesn't matter if it's home or on the road," Laine told reporters Saturday. "I know that I've scored most of my goals at home games. It's 50/50 home and road games, so you have to be able to produce on the road too."

Heading to Alberta on Saturday to take on the Calgary Flames, Laine will have the opportunity to score his fourth road goal of the season.
