In The System – November 14, 2022

By JD Lagrange – Just how are the Montreal Canadiens’ prospects doing, you asked? We’ve decided to create a feature, which we will try to publish once a week, to show you how the team’s top prospects are doing. This is in no way some expert dissection and in-depth analysis, but rather an overview at one point in time about how those young prospects are producing at their respective level.


First, let’s have a look at the skaters or, in other words, all players but goaltenders.

As you can see, many of the Canadiens’ top offensive prospects are producing over a point per game. While it offers no guarantee that they will be as productive or even make the NHL, we must admit that it’s better to see this than seeing them plummet at such a young age, right?


Carey Price’s forced time off – perhaps even early retirement – has left the Canadiens scrambling in goal. This past summer, the did select a goaltender in the sixth round of the 2022 NHL Draft, in Emmett Croteau.

Jakub DobesOhio State Univ.NCAA122.48.911
Emmett CroteauWaterloo Black HawksUSHL92.69.903
Cayden PrimeauLaval RocketAHL83.15.898
Joe VrbeticTrois-Rivières LionsECHL63.06.892
Frederik DichowFrölunda HCSHL53.03.888

Aside from Jakub Dobes and perhaps Croteau, the picture isn’t pretty. The jury is out on Cayden Primeau although the entire Laval Rockets’ team is struggling so far this season.

There you have it folks. We will keep you update periodically with this new feature. Hope you enjoyed it.
