Since the start of the season, there’s been a lot of talk about Logan Mailloux and Owen Beck among the Canadiens’ prospects. The two youngsters had a great season in the OHL and ended up in the Grand Finals.
To everyone’s surprise, Beck and the Petes got the better of Mailloux and the Knights. The Petes are truly the Cinderella team of the season in Ontario.
That said, the final caused a bit of friction between the two youngsters. That’s all well and good while they’re battling it out in junior, but they’ll have to make sure they leave it in the past if they’re going to play together in Montreal.
Because, in spite of everything, we mustn’t forget that the two had a great campaign on their own. Mailloux amassed 25 goals and 53 points in 59 games (which is excellent for a defenseman), while Beck scored 66 points in 60 games and took on major defensive responsibilities.
Logan Mailloux has been selected by OHL general managers to the league’s second all-star team, and Owen Beck is on the third.

No, Shane Wright isn’t (but that’s probably because he didn’t spend the whole season in the OHL).
In short, these are fine honors for two fine Tricolore prospects. Let’s hope they’re the first of many in their careers.
