Even though he’s only been with the @CanadiensMTL for 490 days, Martin St-Louis ranks 14th in the NHL for seniority with the same team behind the bench.
There have been 17 coaches named (soon to be 18) across the league since MSL has been in MTL.

My colleague Félix Forget penned an excellent article yesterday, in which he talks about the famous “recycling of coaches”, which in 2023 will be no more than a vulgar cliché. Half, or 16 of the NHL’s 32 coaches, are in their first job as a team head coach. Martin St-Louis is obviously one of them.
Crazy, isn’t it, when we’re not even talking about a full half-year on the calendar?
Let’s add our own twist .
Martin St-Louis ranks 24th among the league’s active coaches in terms of games played behind the bench. Although he’ll soon be overtaken by Babcock for 25th place, we’re already talking about seven head coaches with less head coaching experience than the former Lightning man.
With 119 games in a season and a half, he’s just behind Jay Woodcroft (120), and sees four coaches surpass him by fewer than 100 points. In those 119 games, the St-Louis team racked up a record of 45 wins, 64 losses and 10 overtime defeats.

– Nice listening.
It’s impossible at this point to know which prospects will be drafted by the CH at the end of the month.
However, I could see in Buffalo that some were better equipped (😂) than others for a potential life in Montreal.
