Much like Brady Tkachuk is now, Shane Wright is still a name that will be linked to the Habs. After all, the Tricolore turned their nose up at Wright, who was almost consensually seen as the top prospect in the last draft, in order to draft Juraj Slafkovský at No. 1. It’sstill far too early to know if the CH will have been right, but clearly, the two will always be linkedin one way or another.
After spending the bulk of his season in junior, Wright is now back in the AHL to help the Coachella Valley Firebirds (the Kraken’s training club) on their playoff run. Yesterday, the Firebirds won the first game of their three-game series against the Tucson Roadrunners, but Wright was blanked from the scoresheet, and what’s noticeable is that his time in the AHL this season has really been a two-step process. After scoring four goals in his first three games, he hasn’t found the target in his last five.
Y’all were hyping up Shane Wright for his 4 goals in his first 4 AHL games (on 5 shots)
Where’s that energy now???? 2 assists in his last 5, 0 goals on 12 shots in that span 😨 – The Habitant (@the_habitant) April 20, 2023
– let’s hope it doesn’t drag on for too long for the Lightning.
– What do you think?
“The problem isn’t how the Canadiens develop goalies, it’s that they don’t draft enough of them!”

– A huge shower of cold water on the Expos’ comeback. My text on the subject.
According to Jeremy Filosa, the picture is pretty bleak for the Expos’ eventual return. https://t.co/7nPQEJ4tSl –
