As everything indicates that Kent Hughes is preparing to make changes at the coaching level of the Canadiens organization, the name Tomas Plekanec has emerged.

Whether with the Laval Rocket or the Montreal Canadiens, Plekanec could bring a lot to the Habs organization.

Tomas Plekanec gets noticed at the World Hockey Championship

Among the names currently attracting attention on the international stage are obviously Juraj Slafkovsky and Oliver Kapanen, who are having great tournaments as forwards, but against all expectations, there is also Tomas Plekanec.
The former number 14 of the Montreal Canadiens impresses many experts behind the Czech bench, and he seems to be a rising star in the coaching field (assistant to start).
With Kelly Buchberger not returning as assistant for the Laval Rocket, and with the future of Jean-François Houle very unclear at the moment, could Plekanec become an option for Kent Hughes?
One thing is certain, he has the Canadiens tattooed on his heart and he knows the "game"!

He could also indeed bring a lot as an assistant coach to Martin St-Louis, but I believe a job with the Laval Rocket (and with Paul Byron) could be such a good idea and a good start for him.
Imagine Tomas Plekanec and Paul Byron as coaches of the Laval Rocket, it could be solid!
Do you like the idea?
Plekanec, 41, has amassed 608 points in 1001 career games in the National Hockey League. 606 of these 608 points were collected with the Montreal Canadiens, imagine that!
This season, he has scored 4 points in 9 games in the best Czech league, after recording 49 points in 52 games last season.
