A future star wants to play for the Canadiens, and it's big

When we hear about a star wanting to play for the Montreal Canadiens, we tend to get excited.

The reality is that all players love the atmosphere of the Bell Centre, which is actually the favorite arena of the majority of players.

However, not everyone can perform under the pressure that comes with it. Playing in Montreal can be both the best and worst experience for a player.

So when we hear a professional say that they want to come to the metropolis, we reserve our excitement, but this time, it's different.


Prospect for the upcoming draft Berkly Catton has been categorical. It would be a dream to wear the blue, white, and red uniform.

"I don't really think you can ask for anything better (laughs). I absolutely love it. Even just watching Montreal on a random night in January, it's just electric. I feel like, as a hockey and young kid, that's all you can ask for. I think that's the dream of any young hockey player."

We can agree that this is a strong statement. Young players about to be drafted want to present themselves well, and they certainly won't mention anything negative about a team, but they wouldn't go as far as saying it's a dream.

With 116 points in 68 games, Catton will surely be a star in the NHL one day. He's projected to be drafted early, even top 5 according to many.
