Logan Mailloux has made a giant leap in his development this season with the Rocket, and now his future with the CH is causing a buzz.

He has become one of the pillars of Jean-François Houle's team and plays very well in all aspects of the game. The young man, only 20 years old, let's remember, was also rewarded by being the Rocket's representative at the AHL All-Star Game.

In 66 games this season, the rookie has already accumulated a total of 43 points. He has also, with his 14 goals, surpassed Éric Gélinas' mark (13) to take the lead in Rocket history for the most goals in a season.

The young man's season gives great hope to Habs fans, who are increasingly eager to see him evolve at the next training camp. While some think that the young man still has things to learn in the AHL, others believe he is ready for the big league. One of those who think this way is analyst Gaston Therrien.

In Gaston Therrien's book, it would be confirmed for Mailloux next year.

During a recent appearance on the show L'Antichambre on RDS, he stated that Mailloux will not only start the season with the Habs but will stay throughout the campaign.

Therrien's argument is that the Habs will greatly lack depth on the right side and that David Savard is aging. It will be necessary to start training a replacement sooner rather than later, who is not Justin Barron but indeed Logan Mailloux according to the analyst.

However, there is no need to panic. Therrien does not place the young defenseman on the first pair from the start. He sees him as the 5th or 6th defenseman, in place of Johnathan Kovacevic, and advocates patience in his case. However, it is also important not to discourage him by forgetting him in the AHL and not giving him a chance.
