The Habs prospect is off to a hot start in the Memorial Cup. Obviously not satisfied with an early exit in the OHL playoffs, Jeremiah Addison has been on fire for the Windsor Spitfires in the Memorial Cup. He tallied a goal in the opening night win against Saint John, and followed it up with a strong performance tonight. Jeremiah Addison adds another goal and the Spits lead 6-1! #Habs pic.twitter.com/bQNLckbv5x— Scott Matla (@scottmatla) May 22, 2017 He ripped home this g

After recording two assists in 3-2 win on the opening day, the Habs’ top prospect will hope to contribute on the scoresheet once again. Windsor Spitfires vs. Seattle Thunderbirds Each of the four teams now has one game under its belt at the 2017 Memorial Cup. Windsor came away with a 3-2 victory despite a late charge from the QMJHL’s best team, the Saint John Sea Dogs, while Seattle couldn’t quite match the offence of the OHL powerhouse Erie Otters in last night’s contest. As a result, the Thunderbirds will desperately be trying for a win over what should be the weakest team in the tournament, as Windsor is the only team not to win a single playoff round this spring. The hosts didn’t look like a weak squad in their opener, however, and should be even better after loosening

One of these teams will be just one win away from the Stanley Cup Final with a victory this afternoon. Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Ottawa Senators (Series tied 2-2) With Matt Murray taking over in net from Marc-Andre Fleury, the Penguins were able to get the win in Game Four. The first goal of the playoffs from defencemen Olli Maatta and Brian Dumoulin helped them claim a 3-2 victory and survive a late push from their opposition. For the Senators, the concern is that

After an impressive rookie season, this promising prospect could be the next heir to the Habs’ pipes. We were first introduced to Charlie Lindgren on April 7, 2016. He made his NHL debut after a signing as a free agent with the Montreal Canadiens to a two-year, two-way contract. After making 26 saves in a 4-2 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes, he was immediately on the radar.

Habs Bergevin Should Be on Notice

After the Montreal Canadiens failed to make the playoffs last year and disappointed this past spring, the pressure is on Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin. Nevertheless, it would be a mistake to assume his success hinges directly on what he’s able to accomplish this coming summer. A Huge Offseason It’s no doubt going to be a huge offseason, with an extension to Carey Price being a top priority, but what will really matter, especially to Canadiens fans, is how the team fares next spring.

The final instalment in the season review of the Montreal Canadiens’ prospects looks at the strongest position in the organization: the defence. The Habs have both quantity and quality among their blue-line contingent, with a variety of different skill sets. These reviews focus on not only the statistical outputs of the players in question, but also the inputs of underlying skills and strengths, and offers an outlook on what to expect from the defenders next season.

The series resets to a best-of-three for tonight’s meeting in Anaheim. Anaheim Ducks vs. Nashville Predators (Series tied 2-2) Not only did the Predators lose Game Four and the chance to take a 3-1 lead in the Western Conference Final, but they also lost their leading point-producer, Ryan Johansen, to injury. He is out for the remainder of the post-season. That means things will be easier for the Ducks, no longer having to deal with the top centre on the opposing team, but they still have to be mindful of James Neal and Filip Forsberg, who are more than capable of compensating for the loss of a key contributor. Nashville has a bevy of offensive players on the blue l

Catching the Torch: Playmakers Will Bitten and Jake Evans led the forward crop of Habs prospects this season

Recent signee Antoine Waked also had a strong over-age season in the QMJHL. It was mentioned in the first instalment of this prospect review how most of the Montreal Canadiens’ prospects had taken steps in their development this season. That development can take many forms. Progression can be looked at as an uptick in statistics, or an improvement in physicals tools like skating or shooting. Ideally, progression occurs in both of those areas. With physical tools and skill set being the input (inherently more subjective), the output is the statistics, or the results. A player with an abundance of skill can have a notable lack of production in junior hockey. Similarly, a player with notable
