The Montreal Canadiens have issued an official statement to commend the excellent work of their young prospect, Jacob Fowler. The American goaltender is simply impressive!

Fowler was the 6th goaltender selected in the last draft, chosen 69th overall. Less than a year later, he finds himself ranked 3rd among all goaltenders aged 23 and under who are not playing regularly in the NHL.

"Our prospect Jacob Fowler is officially a finalist for the Mike Richter Award, given to the best goaltender in the NCAA." - Montreal Canadiens

Despite being a rookie in the NCAA, Fowler has real chances of winning this award. His record of 29-5-1, with a 2.19 goals against average and a .925 save percentage, makes him a prime candidate.


The Canadiens and Kent Hughes' scouting team have hit a home run with this pick. It's still early to make predictions about the young player's future, but his progress is remarkable.

Here are some highlights:


One can quickly notice Fowler's strengths. He has the size, technique, and speed of a top goaltender. He controls rebounds well and has sharp reflexes.

He seems to have all the qualities to become a good NHL goaltender. It's worth noting that he is in his rookie year in the NCAA and is only 19 years old. This bodes very well for the future!
