When you think of the CH’s prospects, it’s not Riley Kidney’s name that comes to mind first. And yet, the Olympiques forward has done an excellent job so far this season.
He’s collected 45 points in 31 games with Acadie-Bathurst, a team that hasn’t been able to match his size this season.
He came very close to earning a place on Canada’s junior team after participating last summer, but an injury spoiled his plans.
Since then, he has added 65 points in just 29 games, more than two points per game. It didn’t take long for him to adapt to his new team, and his success has carried over into the playoffs.
The Olympiques currently face the Québec Remparts in the QMJHL semi-finals.
Here’s his second goal of the game.
One thing’s for sure, it’s far from over, and the Olympiques will be hungry when they return to Gatineau. And for Kidney, his successes don’t go unnoticed. Even if there are some excellent young prospects on the CH, we mustn’t forget him, and he will certainly be of great service to the Montreal Canadiens.
The question is whether he has what it takes to one day make it in the NHL on the third or fourth line. I highly doubt it, but he’s been proving his detractors wrong since the start of his junior career.
– Good start for the Panthers.
