For the Montreal Canadiens organization, will the young forward Juraj Slafkovsky become a support player? A good player? A star player?

The answer to this question will truly have a huge impact on the future of the CH.

And after some doubts, we can truly have hope.

It's extremely evident game after game for the past few weeks, but Slafkovsky seems to have "turned the corner," as Martin St-Louis would say.


He is already increasingly establishing himself as a force on the club's first line.

A major and very encouraging publication



One of the names of the hour in the NHL currently, among the young players, is the 2nd overall pick of the Los Angeles Kings in 2020 Quinton Byfield.

He is becoming a star player in the league at just 21 years old, accumulating 23 points in 29 games this season. (8 goals)

He is a winger of 6 feet 4 inches and 225 pounds, almost identical to Slafkovsky.

In short, here is the publication in question:

"After their first 71 games in the NHL:

Juraj Slavkovsky: 8 goals, 14 assists, 22 points

Quinton Byfield: 7 goals, 13 assists, 20 points

Both will be incredible power forwards over the next decade for their respective teams."

Does this mean that Slafkovsky will soon be a 70-point player? Not necessarily, but it's definitely a possibility.

I wouldn't bet against him, that's for sure.
