Despite the absence of NHL players at the Olympics, a few former NHL players are there, including Eric Staal and David Desharnais for the Canadian team, but also several young prospects for whom this Olympic tournament represents an excellent showcase.

Among them, there is a Habs prospect, Sean Farrell, who is having an excellent start to the tournament for the United States.

Habs' fourth-round pick in the 2020 draft, Farrell had three goals and two assists in the Americans' opening win over China and added an assist in the win against Canada.

His head coach, David Quinn, who is the former coach of the New York Rangers, had only good words for him. The latter mentions that he is impressed by the young man. He also qualifies him as being highly talented as well as very competitive and energetic. He adds that its small size does not affect its productivity at all.

The small left-winger had a stellar season last year with the USHL's Chicago Steel, where he tallied an impressive 101 points in just 53 games. This year, he plays with the prestigious Harvard University and he has 19 points in 17 games.

Will we ever see a Farrell-Caufield combination? It sure looks promising.

In the meantime, you can continue to follow him at the Olympics, with the United States.
