According to journalist Patrick Friolet of RDS, it appears that young Emil Heineman is set to make his official NHL debut tonight.


The 22-year-old Swedish forward is expected to replace Michael Pezzetta in the lineup, though it's not yet clear on which line he will play.

Heineman caught the eye during the Canadiens' preseason camp last fall with his physical play, swift skating, and formidable shot.


He is one of the most promising forward prospects in the organization, and there's a lot of excitement to see him in action.

In his AHL career spanning 18 games, he has accumulated eight goals and 13 points.
