One of the most pleasant surprises within the Montreal Canadiens organization this season is undoubtedly the rapid progression of the young defenseman Logan Mailloux. Indeed, in his first season in the professional ranks, the Tricolore's prospect has greatly distinguished himself by establishing himself as one of the top offensive defensemen in the American Hockey League.

Thanks to his excellent performances, the 31st overall pick in the 2021 draft notably had the opportunity to participate in the AHL All-Star Game, a well-deserved honor given his astonishing statistics with the Laval Rocket. Indeed, despite being only 20 years old, Logan Mailloux has accumulated an impressive total of 13 goals and 25 assists (38 points) in 58 games with the Bleu-Blanc-Rouge's farm team.

It's worth noting that number 24 currently ranks fifth among defensemen in scoring, just six points behind the leader. Moreover, Logan Mailloux is the rookie defenseman with the best offensive contribution in the entire league, which speaks volumes about his abilities to support the attack and be a constant threat on the power play.

Speaking of Logan Mailloux, many Montreal fans are eager to see him in action with the Canadiens. After all, due to the numerous injuries within the organization, many expected him to make his NHL debut this season, an opportunity that has not yet presented itself. However, we have learned in the last few hours that this situation could change soon.


Scoop revealed by Maxime Truman: Logan Mailloux will be called up by the main club by the end of the 2023-2024 season



During the latest episode of Stanley25, the current top podcast in Quebec, Maxime Truman revealed a major exclusive regarding Logan Mailloux and the Montreal Canadiens. Indeed, according to his information, the defenseman will join Martin St-Louis and company in the near future, getting a promotion by the end of the campaign.

"According to what I was told, by the end of the season, Logan, if there are no injuries or problems with call-up limits, is going to come play in Montreal. It's not a 'he should' or 'maybe,' he's going to come play with the Canadiens." - Maxime Truman

Wow! What wonderful news!

It would only be a matter of time before the 6-foot-3-inch, 220-pound giant plays his first game in the Tricolore uniform. Fans will undoubtedly be very pleased to learn such information.

Selected in the first round, Logan Mailloux was completely dominant in his last season in the junior ranks, collecting 33 goals and 44 assists (77 points) in 80 games with the London Knights in the OHL.
