According to what journalist Arpon Basu just stated, unless there is a sudden change, it would be confirmed for Logan Mailloux and the Montreal Canadiens.

This aligns exactly with the information circulating over the past few weeks, but The Athletic journalist also stated that Mailloux should be playing in the NHL from the start of the next season.

Logan Mailloux in the NHL and in Martin St-Louis's lineup as early as next fall? This is becoming more and more confirmed

He should therefore join Kaiden Guhle, Mike Matheson, Arber Xhekaj, David Savard, Jordan Harris, Justin Barron, and Johnatan Kovacevic.
The last three names mentioned are eligible for NHL waivers, which is why we listed them. We can also consider Jayden Struble, Lane Hutson, and David Reinbacher...
Yes, that's a lot of defensemen for six regular spots.
Anyway, back to young Logan Mailloux, here's exactly what Arpon Basu mentioned:
«And according to what Arpon Basu said in his podcast with Marc Antoine Godin, he believes that Mailloux should start the season in the NHL – unless there's a catastrophe.» - Via Charles-Alexis Brisebois, DLC

He seems convinced that Mailloux will start the season in the NHL, and clearly, this is becoming more and more confirmed for him! He believes Mailloux will start with the Canadiens «unless there's a catastrophe.»
«Basu says that the situation on the right (with Guhle possibly moving back to the left) could allow the door to open for him.» - Via Charles-Alexis Brisebois, DLC

Do you believe it?
Mailloux, 21 years old, who is a right-handed defenseman (which greatly helps him in the Canadiens' hierarchy), amassed 47 points in 72 games this season with the Laval Rocket, including 14 goals.
He was among the best rookies in the entire American Hockey League and added 1 point in 1 game with the Canadiens.
Mailloux, 6 feet 3 inches and 220 pounds, was the 31st overall pick in 2021.
