As the Montreal Canadiens season is already slowly coming to an end, we will still have some great stories to follow until the end of the campaign.

We talked earlier about Kirby Dach and Rafaël Harvey-Pinard, who could come as reinforcements.


But Martin St-Louis could also get reinforcements on defense.


This could certainly rekindle the fans' interest in the Montreal Canadiens games.

"The end of the season is looking a bit boring for the #CH but we should at least be able to witness the professional debuts of...

- Lane Hutson (NHL)
- David Reinbacher (AHL)
- Adam Engstrom (AHL)

That's going to be interesting indeed!" - Marc-Olivier Beaudoin

We can't wait to see that!

Things are going to get heated on defense, and big decisions will have to be made but it will surely add some spice.

The three young defensemen are having excellent seasons with their respective clubs and in their respective leagues.

Lane Hutson dominated the NCAA with a tally of 12 goals and 27 assists (39 points) in 30 games.

Adam Engstrom, only 20 years old, has racked up an impressive total of 18 points in 45 games in Sweden, that's very impressive for a young defenseman.

As for David Reinbacher, last year's fifth overall pick, he has had his ups and downs with HC Kloten. He ended up with 11 points in 32 games, ultimately.

Big file to follow, until the end of the season!
