It's not easy to break into an NHL lineup, especially when your style of play favors you on an offensive line, and when Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl are ahead of you.

Just ask Jesse Puljujarvi, who never managed to secure a spot with the Edmonton Oilers. It's not just about the team's situation; the player also has to take a long look in the mirror. And that's exactly what he's doing right now.

Indeed, the Finn is working very hard with the ultimate goal of making a return to the NHL. He's even willing to make significant compromises.

"He will have another chance. I guess he will probably have to start somewhere with a professional tryout or an AHL contract to try to come back. I think it wasn't just a health issue that prevented him from reaching the level he wanted to achieve, and a lot of people thought he could get there."

Puljujarvi is currently a free agent, and Kent Hughes has the opportunity to acquire him for free. The player has incredible skills, so he could prove to be a steal for the Habs. Offering him an AHL contract would not be much of a risk to give him a shot.

His name has been linked to the Canadiens in the past, so there's a certain level of interest. Stay tuned...
