The Montreal Canadiens‘ management team added more players to their prospect pool which reduced their weakness and only strengthened their balanced mix. Through the recent draft selections and free agent signings of Jiri Sekac and Daniel Carr, the team really improved the depth and filled in more of the gaps in the farm system.
The Montreal Canadiens surprised many hockey experts by finishing the 2013-14 NHL season fourth in the Eastern Conference and hitting the 100-point total. The team's successful run into the conference finals during the NHL playoffs showed the Canadiens are on the cusp of being a contending team in the East.
With the Hamilton Bulldogs failing to capture an AHL playoff spot, the Montreal Canadiens recalled a large group of prospects, including Nathan Beaulieu and Dustin Tokarski, as the Black Aces practice squad. Michael Bournival and Jarred Tinordi were already playing at the NHL level at the end of the NHL regular season and were part of Montreal's playoff roster.
The Montreal Canadiens have a good mix of talent amongst their prospects playing in Europe and the NCAA. The organization has six forwards and three defensemen in this group that possesses varying degrees of speed, skill, and grit. These young prospects have shown improvement in their development this year and add good overall depth to the Canadiens' farm system.
