Sean Farrell is filmed taunting the goalie and continues to prove he is a steal of the draft

When Sean Farrell was selected by the Canadiens in the 4th round (124th overall) of the 2020 draft, Cole Caufield immediately mentioned that it was a steal. The two men knew each other well having played together for two seasons in the U.S. development program.

The last few years have proven that the CH's 22 wasn't totally wrong. As Anthony Martineau reminds us in a recent excellent piece on Farrell, he is getting dangerously close to being the perfect player. There's just no department where the forward seems to be struggling, so far, in his NCAA career.

"He plays everywhere. On the power play, short-handed, when we need to score and when we need to protect a lead. He's not just a talented forward waiting for his chances. He's a great forward, he works hard in his duels. That's why I see him succeeding in the NHL. He's a leader on and off the ice. He's my go-to guy." - Ted Donato, Farrell's NCAA coach

In addition to his talents on the ice, Farrell is quite a leader on the team. Donato says his teammates don't hesitate to turn to him when a difficulty arises.

The young man, who doesn't like to talk about himself, did however flinch and mention what he wants to work on to be successful in the NHL.

"I want to get stronger and win more battles along the boards. That's important once you get to the NHL." - Sean Farrell

Oh yeah, Farrell also has a bit of a drooling side. At 5-foot-9, 175 pounds, he recently didn't hesitate to go out and taunt opposing team captain Connor Murphy, who is also the goalie, after outwitting him.

We can't wait to see what he can do in the next few years against men!
