Since the Montreal Canadiens won the 2022 National Hockey League lottery, many experts and observers have been commenting on the potential of Shane Wright.

Some see him as a star player, while others believe that the CH must consider other options.

However, of all those who have commented on the young center's future so far, no one has gone as far as Wright's current head coach in Kingston, Luca Caputi.

"He's ripe to play in the NHL as soon as this fall. He's a raw talent [...] He's the kind of player who always makes his teammates look good on a hockey rink."



As Max Truman (DansLesCoulisses.com) reports, Caputi then went even further, in his interview with Louis Butcher of the Journal de Montreal.

He brought back the comparison with Patrice Bergeron, in addition to daring to mention the words "Hall of Fame", you're not dreaming, he really mentioned those words!

"I don't want to be chauvinistic, but Shane is the first choice [...] He has all the qualities to not only succeed in his NHL career, but to become an all-star player who will one day have his place in the Hall of Fame." - Luca Caputi

Incredible though. Clearly, we understand that he's thinking very big for Wright, and maybe his prediction will come true, but let's just say he's putting a lot of pressure on him!

The media is often severely accused of putting too much pressure on young players, and here, it comes from his own head coach!
