Last-minute surprise in front of the net within the Montreal Canadiens organization

It's always interesting to monitor what's happening within the Montreal Canadiens organization, especially in the goaltending department, which is a hot topic these days.

We know what's going on with Jake Allen, Samuel Montembeault, and Cayden Primeau, but what about the other goalies in the organization?

The Laval Rocket is currently without Primeau's services for well-known reasons, but how are the young replacements doing?

Well, we already have a surprise.


While Jakub Dobes was supposed to replace Primeau as the starter, young Strauss Mann seems to want to snatch the position from him.

«A second consecutive start for Strauss Mann in goal for the Rocket tonight against Rochester.» - Anthony Marcotte

Given the early start of the season, that's telling.

Could he become a name to watch in goal for the Montreal Canadiens?

In any case, he seems to have the potential to become a serious goalie for the Rocket. Having dominated the NCAA (with save percentages of 0.930 and 0.940), dominated in Sweden, and played in the Olympics for the USA.

A name to keep an eye on that could be a pleasant surprise.
