Indeed, it will be a night of firsts on Tuesday at the Bell Centre. The Canadiens are hosting the Columbus Blue Jackets, and Cayden Primeau will be in the net.

"Cayden Primeau will start against Columbus on Tuesday." - Montreal Canadiens

What will be new is quite simple; Cayden Primeau will get a start for the first time as the second goaltender in the NHL. It may seem ordinary, but it's a significant moment for him.

He will have won his bet and demonstrated the patience necessary to officially make the jump to the big league. Considering his progress and performances this year, it's well-deserved.

There were many doubts about his ability to take on the role of the number two goalie, but he has now dispelled those doubts. It's up to him to prove the organization right now, and I'm confident he'll come out strong on Tuesday night.
