In the last few minutes, the Montreal Canadiens organization has announced some great news regarding their young goaltender Frederik Dichow.

"Frederik Dichow will once again represent Denmark at the IIHF World Championship!" - Montreal Canadiens.

The young goaltender, who was selected by the Canadiens in the fifth round in 2019, played 16 games this season with HC Frolunda in the Swedish Elite League.

At the age of 22, he maintained an average of 2.76 goals allowed and a save percentage of .898.


A more important announcement to come?



We hate to do this, we hate to try to look for clues (or signs) where there are none, but we have to admit that this is an interesting statement. Why?

As we mentioned last week, General Manager Kent Hughes will have to make a very big decision soon, specifically regarding Dichow.

He must be qualified by June 1st to remain in the organization, otherwise, he will be released and made available for free to all other clubs. In short, he will no longer be a prospect of the Montreal Canadiens from June 1st, unless qualified by then.

Following this statement, we ask you the question.

The fact that the Habs continues to follow him, talk about him, and promote him, 20 days before June 1st, is this a sign that Dichow will remain a prospect of the Montreal Canadiens? Will he actually be qualified?

A case to follow in the coming days!

Perhaps it could depend on his performance at the World Championships. It wouldn't be the first time a Danish goaltender has impressed on the international stage, after all!
