The son of Stéphane, who has been the Montreal Canadiens’ defense coach for the past year, has signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Carolina Hurricanes.
Interestingly, the Hurricanes had until tomorrow to sign their fifth-round pick in 2021. Lo and behold, they did – at the last second, but still.
Why was that? Because we’re talking about a quality prospect who will serve the Canes’ cause.
Next year, he should be heading for the AHL. We’ll see how he fares in the pros next year.
– Speaking of the AHL and the Canes.
Waddell says there are options for an AHL affiliation for next season. “We’re going to be fine.” Says some European players will stay in Europe. Other players could be loaned out to other AHL teams.

From three years ago today: for much of his Hall of Fame-bound career, @MartinBrodeur chased the ghost of Terry Sawchuk. Here, Marty remembers that pursuit, with great respect for the goaltending great who died on this May 31 in 1970. https://t.co/OwfBe3PHXp via @NHLdotcom
