Montreal Canadiens: Emil Heineman is brimming with confidence and makes a huge statement

BY MARCO    AUGUST 28, 2023  (7:39 PM)
We were treated to two very nice surprises at the Canadiens' camp last summer. Of course, all eyes are on Owen Beck, who was even recalled from junior during the season.

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:

"Do you think you have what it takes to carve out a full-time position with the CH this year?"


- Anthony Martineau

"Yes. You'll see in October."

- Emil Heineman

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.

"I've never played an official NHL game, but based on the three prep games I was used in last year, I'm convinced I have what it takes to not only earn a regular spot with Montreal, but to help the team."

- Emil Heineman

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.
