Today marked the end of the Montreal Canadiens' development camp, as the organization's prospects played an intra-squad match at the Bell Sports Complex in Brossard.

Many youngsters showed excellent flashes during the two 25-minute periods played between the Reds and the Whites. The 20-year-old defenseman, Logan Mailloux, notably scored a beautiful goal during the shootout sequence presented at the end of the match.

Although they've only been paired on the same defensive line for a few days, the duo of Lane Hutson and David Reinbacher was very impressive, managing to combine for numerous scoring opportunities. One thing is certain, if this match is a precursor to what awaits the Tricolore fans in a few years, the CH will be able to count on an electrifying duo on the blue line.

A few minutes after the match, the 5th overall pick made a statement that brought a smile to several journalists present. Indeed, he mentioned that Lane Hutson was probably the next Cale Makar and that he was greatly looking forward to passing him the puck to watch him go in the coming years.

« No one had the puck on their stick more than Lane Hutson in that scrimmage, and every time he did, his team was essentially on a power play. Guys gave him so much space because they didn't want to be on the wrong end of a highlight. » - Arpon Basu

Adam Engstrom was also very impressive throughout the match. The 19-year-old Swedish defenseman showed he had very interesting offensive skills by offering a perfect pass to Jack Smith who scored the first goal of the match.

He will be a player to watch closely next season, having accumulated 13 points in 7 matches in the junior league in Sweden in 2022-2023. Engstrom also played a leading role with Rogle BK Angelholm in the SweHL, collecting 6 goals and 10 assists, in 43 games.

In addition, Joshua Roy, Owen Beck, and Luke Tuch showed very encouraging signs during these 50 minutes of action. There is no doubt that the organization has a very promising prospect pool and we are all eager to see their progression in the coming seasons.
