The name of coach Sylvain Favreau has been a topic of discussion in hockey circles for over a year.

Having impressively climbed the ranks, he has reached another milestone in his coaching career with Hockey Canada.
Sylvain Favreau has been appointed as assistant coach for the upcoming edition of Canada's Junior Team in preparation for the next World Championship during the holiday season.
Favreau has just guided the Drummondville Voltigeurs to great success in the QMJHL, after reaching the finals the previous year with the Halifax Mooseheads.
His name is frequently mentioned for the vacant head coach position with the Laval Rocket or even as an assistant role under Martin St-Louis with the Canadiens.
Here is what Hockey Canada mentions about Sylvain Favreau in their statement:
Favreau just completed his first season as head coach of the Drummondville Voltigeurs in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) after six seasons as head coach (2021-2023) and assistant coach (2017-2021) with the Halifax Mooseheads of the QMJHL. This season, he led the Voltigeurs to a QMJHL championship and a participation in the Memorial Cup. The team finished atop the Western Conference in the regular season.

Prior to his time in the QMJHL, he was an assistant coach (2009-2011) and head coach (2011-2015) with the Gloucester Rangers in the Central Canada Hockey League (CCHL), as well as head coach and hockey operations director for the Cumberland Grads of the CCHL for two seasons (2015-2017). Favreau won a gold medal as assistant coach with Canada's U18 summer national team at the 2023 Hlinka-Gretzky Cup and served as assistant coach for Team Canada Black and head coach for Team Canada White at the 2018 and 2019 editions of the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge, respectively.

However, he might have to relinquish his role with Canada's Junior Team if he decides to fully commit to joining the Canadiens organization.
An announcement could be forthcoming soon...
