Forward arriving in Montreal: significant statement and Kent Hughes will have to take action

As you may have noticed, the Canadiens were forced to recall young Emil Heineman from the Laval Rocket due to the injury suffered by Tanner Pearson.

This highlights how much the Canadiens' depth is taking a hit in a season that continues to be plagued by injuries.

According to the voice of the Rocket, Anthony Marcotte, Heineman represents the last ready-to-play NHL prospect left in Laval among forwards.

This implies that, in his opinion, players like Joshua Roy and Brandon Gignac simply do not have the caliber for the big league, and if more injuries were to occur, the Canadiens would be in serious trouble.


Marcotte goes even further by suggesting that he wouldn't be surprised if Heineman stays with the Canadiens until the end of the season.

In short, there is a serious issue at the NHL and AHL levels within the organization, and Kent Hughes must quickly find a solution. Will there be a trade soon to bring in a forward? It's very likely.
