Leadership is a sought-after trait by all teams in the Bettman circuit, and the Canadiens are no exception. Kent Hughes must be thrilled today, as the captain of the Montreal Canadiens has set a leadership example at the Bell Complex in Brossard.

Nick Suzuki could be like his teammates and spend the summer traveling and relaxing, but he was front and center at the Habs' development camp. The images captured of the captain on the ice with the rookies speak volumes about his leadership.

Nick Suzuki is already preparing for the next season!

It's often said that top players like Crosby and McDavid are special, but the secret to success is hard work! Nick Suzuki understands that doing more than others is key to getting better each year. Since joining the Canadiens, he has continually progressed. At this rate, it wouldn't be surprising to see his name among the Selke Trophy finalists in two or three years.
He wasn't the only veteran on the ice, as his teammate RHP was also skating this morning.

Like Nick Suzuki, Harvey-Pinard has always been a model of work ethic, determination, and passion for hockey.
When it comes to setting an example... you can't find a better one!
The goal is not to criticize other players who prefer to take vacations or travel. This text aims to highlight the incredible dedication of these two players in helping young players progress and providing a positive experience for newcomers.
At just 24 years old, Nick Suzuki had a phenomenal year despite his team finishing 28th. The captain scored 77 points in 82 games last season, his best in terms of goals and points. Over the past three seasons, he has gone from 61 points to 66 points to 77 points, without missing a single game.
On the other hand, Rafaël Harvey-Pinard is a year older than his captain, but he can be proud of securing a regular spot with the Habs. He scored 10 points in 45 games last season and 20 points, including 14 goals, in 34 games in 2022-23.
Two true leaders!
