Although everything pointed to Joël Teasdale's time in Montreal coming to an end, as he did not receive a qualifying offer on July 1st, we still had hope that the Quebec-born forward would reach an agreement with the Canadiens this summer.

However, during an interview with Simon-Olivier Lorange of La Presse, Teasdale confirmed that he was officially leaving the organization. He will try to pursue his dream of playing full-time in the NHL with a new team next season, mentioning that some teams had shown interest in him.

"The Canadiens are my childhood team, so I would have loved to continue with them." - Joël Teasdale

Considering that several young players will make their debut with the Laval Rocket in 2023-2024, and many prospects aspire to secure a spot with the Canadiens in the coming years, Teasdale firmly believes that a fresh opportunity could be greatly beneficial for him.


At 24 years old, Joël Teasdale had an impressive performance with the Laval Rocket last year, scoring 23 goals and providing 15 assists (38 points) in 58 games. His strong performance earned him a call-up to the Canadiens, allowing him to play his very first game in the NHL. He also managed to get an assist in two games with the Canadiens.

One thing is certain; we sincerely hope he will find a new team very soon!
