As you know, Canadiens fans sometimes have a few "favorites" during training camps, like Arber Xhekaj and Michael Pezzetta.

One of those players who was always highly appreciated by CH fans is John Parker-Jones, a giant 6 foot 7 player.
He stirs things up a lot on the ice, and he has always managed to stand out during the Canadiens' preseason games.
Unfortunately, we have just learned that his time with the organization is over. He has just been acquired by the Los Angeles Kings organization.

John Parker-Jones and Shawn Element sign with the Los Angeles Kings' AHL team

These are two excellent signings for their organization.
"New signing alert! We have added Shawn Element and John Parker-Jones for the 2024-25 season!"

- Ontario Reign

Element, 24 years old, from Victoriaville, is an excellent forward standing 5 feet 11 inches and weighing 195 pounds.
He is a fan favorite, and he truly deserves a chance in the National Hockey League eventually (and an NHL contract).
In 64 games last season with the Tampa Bay Lightning's AHL team, he recorded 9 goals, 18 points, and 100 penalty minutes.
He is the kind of player who could have really helped the Montreal Canadiens organization and the Laval Rocket.
As for Parker-Jones, he is a defenseman capable of playing as a forward, standing 6 feet 7 inches and weighing 235 pounds. He is 24 years old and played a few games with the Canadiens' AHL team in 2023-2024, adding 90 penalty minutes in Trois-Rivières.
He will certainly add toughness and size to the Kings' system. His potential is intriguing.
Details to follow.
