Nick Suzuki is a young captain, but he takes his role to heart and is clearly the leader of the Canadiens. You can ask Juraj Slafkovsky.

Indeed, since they've been paired, the number 20's statistics have exploded, so much so that he stands out among the best on the team.
Former NHL defenseman Kevin Bieksa revealed major information about Slaf's performance. It was Suzuki who would have gone to see Martin St-Louis.
«Juraj started the season with 2A in his first 15 games. He wasn't playing good hockeyNick Suzuki, being the leader that he is, went into coach Marty's office & said: ‘Put him on my line. I'm gonna help teach him to play the right way on both sides of the ice.»

- Kevin Bieksa

So it was the captain who really took him under his wing, and since then, the young Slovakian has practically scored a point per game, in addition to being very solid in all three zones.
It's not given to everyone to make others better, and Nick has that gift. To think he still has six years left on his contract!
