Major Declaration From Martin St-Louis on Samuel Montembault

Published January 7, 2024 at 1:59 PM

It was a very big game for Samuel Montembeault yesterday against the New York Rangers.

He almost single-handedly stopped a powerhouse of the league, making big saves, even in the shootout, to largely contribute to his team's victory.

The 2023-2024 season will be a very important one in the career of the Quebec goalie, as he increasingly confirms that he is a true number one goalie in the NHL.

In this regard, even his head coach Martin St-Louis, who has always been hesitant to openly praise Montembeault, did not hide yesterday to confirm something significant for the latter.

The coach affirmed that Monty is playing like a number one goalie, which is no small feat. This also says a lot about what the organization thinks of Monty's performance.

The 27-year-old goalie now stands as the worthy successor to the main goalie position, which was left vacant by the heavy departure of Carey Price.
