Bad news for Canadiens goaltenders

Published August 4, 2023 at 12:02

As there are 32 teams in the NHL, there will be 64 goalkeepers starting the season throughout the league.

JFreshHockey has released its long-awaited NHL goalie rankings from 1 to 64, and the Habs are fairly poorly represented. Here are positions 40 to 50.

40- Pavel Francouz

41- Jake Allen (HABS)

42- Anton Forsberg

43- Laurent Brossoit

44- Alex Nedeljkovic

45- Kaapo Kahkonen

46- Alex Lyon

47- Samuel Montembeault (HABS)

48- Jonathan Quick

49- Yaroslav Askarov

50- Casey DeSmith

With both goalies ranked 41st and 47th, the CH is clearly the League's worst team in this regard.

Andrei Vasilevskiy, Igor Shesterkin and Ilya Sorokin make up the top 3.

However, if Samuel continues to progress as we know he can, he should move up the rankings fairly quickly.
