Jacob De La Rose:
*LW, 6’3 and 20 years old.*
Jacob was drafted in 2013, 34th overall. He played 33 regular season games in which he scored 4 goals and 2 assists, along with 12 playoff games with the Canadiens last season. It’s a safe bet that he’ll be on the 3rd or 4th lines this upcoming season. Because Montréal is one of the smallest teams in the NHL, they could use a big body that can bring some good two-way play. While he’s not the most fancy or unique player, he does have a good relationship with his coach, which can also be a factor.
*RW, 6’6 and 20 years old.*
Michael was also drafted in 2013, but went 25th overall. While he is not expected to become a star, Mccarron has great intensity and determination. He isn’t very fast, but plays with an edge and had 68 points in 56 games for the Oshawa Generals and London Knights (OHL). He won the memorial cup 2 months ago, and a silver medal in the IIHF World U18 Championship in 2013.
*D, 6’6 and 23 years old.*
Drafted 22nd overall in 2010, Jarred will hopefully be a 3rd pairing defenseman next year. Tinordi was moved between Montréal and Hamilton (AHL team) this season and played 13 games in total, and was a -5. He’s a solid defensive defenseman that doesn’t have much to his offensive game. There are also rumours of Alexei Emelin getting traded, so that could potentially open up a spot for Jarred Tinordi.
