Major turnaround for young goalie Jakob Dobes and the Montreal Canadiens

BY MARCO    MARCH 27, 2023  (8:47)
Like another Montreal Canadiens prospect in Sean Farrell, young goaltender Jakub Dobes has just been eliminated from the Frozen Four tournament, which means his season is over.

This also means that from now on, the Tricolore's fifth round pick in 2020 could decide to graduate to the pros and put an end to his university career.

The 21-year-old Czech-born netminder could be ready to make the jump to the AHL after developing very well in his last two seasons in the NCAA.

Like Farrell, who signed his entry-level contract a few days ago, Dobes could join the Laval Rocket by the end of the season.


In 39 games this season, he maintained a 2.29 GAA and a .920 SV%. He made his mark last year, posting a 2.26 GAA and a .934 SV%.

It will be interesting to see what the organization's game plan is with one of their top prospects in net.
