In the last few hours, a transaction has been announced within the Montreal Canadiens organization. Indeed, the team affiliated with the Habs in the ECHL, the Trois-Rivières Lions, has acquired the rights to forward Jakov Novak.

"The Trois-Rivières Lions acquire the rights to forward, Jakov Novak, from the Norfolk Admirals in return for future considerations." - Trois-Rivières Lions

Some Montreal fans might recognize the name, as he participated in this year's training camp. Aged 24, the 6'3" and 215-pound forward played the last season with Northeastern University in the NCAA, collecting a total of 12 points in 35 games.

He also joined the Allen Americans in the ECHL towards the end of the last campaign, instantly becoming a leading forward within the lineup. In just 14 games, Novak scored seven times and added five assists, thus achieving a total of 12 points.


It will be very interesting to follow his performances with Trois-Rivières in 2023-2024, as he is sure to bring a significant offensive contribution to Ron Choules' offense.
