With the end of the American college calendar and some European leagues, the Canadiens organization is about to receive reinforcements. Indeed, Lane Hutson and David Reinbacher are both expected to join the CH and the Rocket respectively in the coming weeks.

A name, often forgotten by fans, is also expected to make the jump to North America. This is defenseman Adam Engstrom.
According to a recent article by Arpon Basu for The Athletic, the CH's management holds him in high regard and would like to see what he can do in North American hockey. That's why the 3rd round pick (92nd overall) from the 2022 draft is expected to sign an NHL entry-level contract with the club soon.
The Rocket would thus have two new defensemen in its lineup (Reinbacher and Endstrom) for the end of the season. A significant help as the farm team struggles to qualify for the spring tournament. To date, the Rocket is at the bottom of the North division, with 53 points, 4 points behind the Toronto Marlies and the last playoff spot.
In 47 games this season in the Swedish League, Engstrom has accumulated 3 goals and 15 assists for a total of 18 points. The 6-foot, 168-pound left-handed defenseman, who is also nicknamed Showtime because of his puck skills, will see his contract with his European team end after this campaign. He will therefore be able to align with the CH (or its farm team) as soon as his season is over.
