Now that the trio situation is officially over at the Canadiens, many expected Cayden Primeau to get more playing time, especially since he has only started three games since the beginning of February.

Moreover, a rumor was circulating earlier this morning regarding the next match against the Columbus Blue Jackets, and now it has been officially confirmed. The 24-year-old American goalkeeper will thus play his 15th game tomorrow night.

"Cayden Primeau will get the start against the Blue Jackets, Tuesday." - Montreal Canadiens

This will be Cayden Primeau's first start at the Bell Centre since his 13-save shutout against the Anaheim Ducks on February 13th.


Now definitively the backup to Samuel Montembeault, he will have the opportunity to show the management that they made the right decision by giving him a vote of confidence.

Selected in the seventh round of the 2017 draft, the CH's number 30 has compiled a record of five wins, six losses, and two overtime losses this season. He has notably posted a goals-against average of 3.04 and a save percentage of 0.901.

Certainly, we will have the chance to see him in action much more often in the coming weeks, and we are eager to see if he can elevate his level of play.
