The other is Emil Heineman, who was acquired in exchange for Tyler Toffoli. Not only did he do well at training camp, he was excellent when he joined the Rocket at the end of the year, with 7 goals and 9 points in 11 games.
Interviewed by TVA Sports' Anthony Martineau, Heineman had this to say:
The young man is brimming with confidence, and we love it! Of course, with the Canadiens' depth on offense, he'll need to have a masterful camp if he wants to carve out a spot with the Tricolore. He's ready and he believes in himself.
From what we saw at camp last year and in Laval, it's safe to say he'll definitely be playing in the NHL sooner rather than later. If not at the start of the season, then at most a year from now.
