One of the names we are closely watching at this Montreal Canadiens' 2023 training camp is the young Logan Mailloux.

He is very talented, dynamic, clearly has high potential, and has given us some spectacular sequences.

The most frequently asked question in his case is: can he start the 2023 season with the Montreal Canadiens? Already?

Many journalists, including Jean-Charles Lajoie, sincerely believe so!


Lajoie thinks that Mailloux absolutely must start the year with the major league team, even at the expense of a certain Justin Barron, who nevertheless has more NHL experience.

«Logan Mailloux is just as impressive in this camp as Kaiden Guhle was a year ago. No more, no less. Same physical maturity to boot. Why do we want to see him two years in Laval, when last year, we all wanted to see Guhle here with the CH? Mailloux well before Barron!»

Jean-Charles Lajoie

Interesting! Do you agree with him?

It's true that Mailloux has demonstrated all his potential, but considering the few games he has played in recent years, a stint with the Laval Rocket could also benefit him. (even if we are really looking forward to seeing him in Montreal in the regular season)

And according to you, where should he start the season?

Mailloux, 20 years old, 6 feet 3 inches and 210 pounds, scored 53 points in 59 games last season with the London Knights. (25 goals)
