Jonathan Marchessault compares Nick Suzuki to a future Hall of Famer

There is a game between the Montreal Canadiens and the Vegas Golden Knight tonight at the Bell Centre. This will be a first home game for Martin St-Louis' team since their solid four game road trip.

In addition, the inseparable Nick Suzuki and Cole Caufield will be honored with the Molson Cup for their fantastic month of October.

On the occasion of this very interesting duel, Jonathan Marchessault, who is known for being honest, spoke about Nick Suzuki on JiC on TVA Sports.

He was the first to address the topic, saying that Suzuki reminds him of Patrice Bergeron in the way he plays both ways and how important he is to his team.

Later, when asked about Kirby Dach and Cole Caufield, the Quebecer brought up the subject of the Tricolore captain a second time.

A guy like Suzuki honestly, it's impressive to see. He's what, 23 years old? It's impressive to see how capable he is of performing even at that age and having that much confidence with and without the puck." - Jonathan Marchessault

Number 81 of the Knights isn't the kind of guy to speak in a vacuum, so this kind of statement is a huge testament to how much of a reputation Suzuki is building in the NHL.

Proof that the former Quebec Remparts man is legendarily outspoken and never afraid to speak his mind, as my colleague Vincent Fournier of Let's Go Habs mentions, he was also asked about the Toronto Maple Leafs' tumultuous situation right now.

His answer?

According to him, the Leafs are not that good!

Do you think Nick Suzuki could win the Selke trophy one day, given to the best defensive player like Patrice Bergeron?
