As of today, however, the Canadiens have one less hope, as Riley Kidney saw his Olympiques swept aside by Patrick Roy’s mighty Quebec Remparts.
Remember, he’s not the only Canadiens prospect playing in the QMJHL. Joshua Roy, who was blanked for the first time in the series in the Phoenix’s loss (the club’s first in the playoffs) on Tuesday in Halifax, has 23 points in 11 games.
His 11 goals show he’s on another level. Will he do enough to help Sherbrooke, which leads 2-1 in its semi-final series, get past the Mooseheads to take on the Remparts for a shot at the Gilles-Courteau Trophy?

As we look around the OHL, we’re keeping an eye on two quality prospects who are important to the Montreal Canadiens’ future: Owen Beck and Logan Mailloux.
Beck doesn’t seem to be in top form at the moment. After a one-goal, one-assist game in the series opener against North Bay, he has just one assist in three games.
The series is currently tied 2-2. And even though North Bay has a better club and the Petes weren’t supposed to be there (the surprise win over Ottawa changed all that), we’d sure like to see more from Beck.
And if there’s one prospect who’s making the Habs happy right now, it’s Logan Mailloux.
Obviously, both Q prospects had big series, but when a defenseman has 15 points (including five goals) in 13 games in his first playoff opportunity, it’s very noteworthy.

The man with five points in his last three games is one of the reasons London hasn’t been downgraded in the last two games. In the Knights’ two losses, he had four assists on his team’s six goals.
The series is tied 2-2 against Sarnia due to London’s two early home wins.
In a row
Patrick Roy will have a chance to go out with a bang if he wants to. His club is very impressive, with no losses so far in the playoffs. The Remparts will have more than a week’s rest before the finals begin.
