All-star teams: Logan Mailloux and Owen Beck honoured in the OHL

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.

That said, we can blame it on the competitive nature of the two youngsters. At least, in Montreal, we have to hope so.

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.

And today, the OHL honored both youngsters by unveiling its All-Star Teams (there are three, each comprising six players and a coach). Mailloux is on the second team, while Beck is on the third.

In other words, roughly speaking, Mailloux was one of the top four defensemen in the league this season, while Beck was the third-best center in the league. Mailloux was edged out by Pavel Mintyukov and Brandt Clarke on the first team (Ethan Del Mastro is with him on the second team), while Beck was topped by Logan Morrison and Amadeus Lombardi.

No, Shane Wright isn’t (but that’s probably because he didn’t spend the whole season in the OHL).

Colby Barlow, one of the top prospects in the upcoming draft, makes the first all-star team. A nice recognition less than a month before the NHL amateur auction.

In short, these are fine honors for two fine Tricolore prospects. Let’s hope they’re the first of many in their careers.


Beck and the Petes are still in the running for the Memorial Cup. They will play the semi-final tonight against the Seattle Thunderbirds (and Jared Davidson) and the winning team will face the Remparts in the final on Sunday night.

Beck could therefore add another honor to his season in the coming days.
