Official announcement from the Canadiens: Kent Hughes brings in reinforcements for the end of the season

BY MARCO    MARCH 20, 2023  (10:40)
The news has just been confirmed by the Montreal Canadiens organization, Swedish forward Emil Heineman is coming to North America to finish the season.

He will be coming to help the Laval Rocket as the team is in the midst of a playoff race.

"The Canadiens have assigned forward Emil Heineman to the Laval Rocket. He will participate in practice this morning." - Montreal Canadiens

Heineman, 21, was acquired last season from the Calgary Flames in the Tyler Toffoli trade. The latter is a former 2nd round pick (43rd overall) in 2020. He has 8 goals and 7 assists for a total of 15 points in 35 games this season in Sweden.


This is a timely addition for Jean-François Houle's team, who will also benefit from the addition of defenseman Jayden Struble shortly.
