CH's projected line-up for 2023-24: a major disappointment

Published August 2, 2023 at 9:25

It's the best time of year for hockey speculation and proposals. It leads to a lot of discussion, and fans love it!

The Canadiens didn't make many personnel moves this summer. Kent Hughes was very active, but more on the Laval Rocket side. However, there were so many injuries last year that the changes could be significant, especially in terms of the composition of the trios.

The website has made its predictions for the CH's projected line-up, and there's one big disappointment. It has to do with the 13th forward.

Caufield - Suzuki - Dach
Newhook - Monahan - Anderson
Slafkovsky - Dvorak - Gallagher
Hoffman - Evans - Armia

Extra: Pezzetta - Harvey-Pinard

Guhle - Savard
Matheson - Barron
Xhekaj - Harris

Extra: Kovacevic - Wideman

Rafaël Harvey-Pinard is the kind of player head coaches love, so it's surprising to see him as the 13th forward. However, with 14 healthy forwards, we can expect some surprises.

Rem Pitlick is also under contract for the coming season.
