Several Montreal Canadiens prospects enjoyed long and productive postseasons


With the Hamilton Bulldogs failing to capture an AHL playoff spot, the Montreal Canadiens recalled a large group of prospects, including Nathan Beaulieu and Dustin Tokarski, as the Black Aces practice squad. Michael Bournival and Jarred Tinordi were already playing at the NHL level at the end of the NHL regular season and were part of Montreal's playoff roster.  



At the CHL level, the Canadiens were fortunate enough to have Mike McCarron playing for the 2014 Memorial Cup, which was hosted by the London Knights.

Bournival brought energy to the Canadiens fourth line and caused problems for the Lightning, Bruins, and Rangers defensemen with his forechecking and speed.… read more

Is Bournival considered a "prospect" with 60 GP?!

Yes, he just got into the league and he's not an established player in the sense where he hasn't unleashed his full potential and he doesn't exactly know what role he will have in the organisation. I doubt that he'll be a 4th liner for ever. He was NHL ready and did the jump, but he has much more to do.

Bournival plays like the Habs prospects of the past, a 200 ft game with lots of promise, reminds me of a young Plekanec in a lot of good ways.

Unfortunately, I don't see Bournival having the same offensive ceiling as Plekanec as his offensive hockey IQ isn't his strong suit. I think he tops out as a 20-30 point 3rd liner who plays a complete 200 ft game, but that is still pretty good imo.
