Major turnaround involving goaltenders Jake Allen and Cayden Primeau

We expected a very interesting internal competition between goalkeepers Samuel Montembeault, Jake Allen, and Cayden Primeau at training camp. Unfortunately, no goaltender managed to assert themselves and clearly demonstrate that they deserved a spot on the roster.

However, the general manager of the Montreal Canadiens, Kent Hughes, will still have a very important decision to make in the coming days, as he will have to decide whether he wants to keep three goalkeepers with the team to start the regular season.

According to the words of the excellent Anthony Martineau, we might witness a major turnaround with the Tricolore, as Cayden Primeau could potentially take Jake Allen's place in the organization's hierarchy.

«I'm not talking about contracts or anything else, but pure and hard hockey performance:


So far, in this camp, Cayden Primeau is no worse than Montembeault and Allen. Not at all.

What follows will be interesting.» - Anthony Martineault

Will the young American surprise everyone and force the management to keep him with the team, thereby dislodging the 34-year-old veteran?

One thing is certain, we are very much looking forward to seeing the Tricolore's decision on this matter. It would not be surprising if Kent Hughes forces Martin St-Louis to keep three goalkeepers in his lineup for the first game against the Toronto Maple Leafs on October 11th.
