The Montreal Canadiens lost 3-2 to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday night, but there are still some positives to take from the game. In addition to holding off one of the NHL's powerhouse, the Tricolore saw Nick Suzuki reach the 100-point plateau with a goal and an assist.

At only 22 years and 119 days old, Suzuki became the ninth youngest player in Canadiens history to reach that plateau. He is ahead of legends of the franchise such as Bernie Geoffrion, Henri Richard, Stéphane Richer and Guy Lafleur. Mario Tremblay holds the top spot in the ranking, with his 100th point at 20 years and 164 days.

In addition, Nick Suzuki is the third fastest player to reach the 100-point mark in a CH uniform in the last 25 years. He did it in just 154 games, 16 more than Michael Ryder (138) and 23 more than former captain Saku Koivu (131).

While he has had his ups and downs since the start of the season, stats like these prove that he is still able to stand out on a struggling team. Considering he also has to adjust to his new role as the team's first center, this is still very impressive.
