In The System – March 13, 2023

By JD Lagrange – In The System has become a very popular feature with our readers. This week, let’s see how the team’s top prospects are progressing. The far right column shows how the players are trending based on the previous week. Remember that 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 before turning our attention to the goaltenders.

Joshua Roy, Sean Farrell and Jared Davidson stood out, each one having an excellent week, even based on their high standards.

I personally was expecting more from a few Habs’ prospects this season, particularly in the later stages as their development should have progressed:

  • Owen Beck
  • Filip Mesar
  • Vinzenz Rohrer
  • Luke Tuch
  • Jayden Struble
  • Mattias Norlinder
  • Jan Mysak

It seems like Jayden Struble’s season is over. Having played his final season in the NCAA, he can become a UFA by August. The Canadiens will have to make a decision with him soon.

Justin Barron (injured), Jesse Ylönen and Rafaël Harvey-Pinard are still with the Canadiens. All three are eligible to return to Laval to help the Rocket in their playoffs’ push.


And now, to the organization’s goaltending prospects…
