As you know, Cole Caufield signed an eight-season contract extension a few weeks ago. This news made the rounds in the province in a matter of hours.

Now that it's settled, number 22 can concentrate on the coming season and his rehabilitation.
A new role
With an eight-year contract, comes responsibility. Caufield has agreed to be one of the Montreal Canadiens' dominant faces for nearly a decade with this deal.
With the recent departure of Joel Edmundson, who played a mentoring role and wore an A on his jersey, don't be surprised to see Cole with a letter next season.
According to journalist Eric Engels, Brendan Gallagher and David Savard are the logical choices for assistant captain. We could also add Michael Matheson. However, the Habs could well announce a rotation that would involve number 22 in this role.
"Bendan Gallagher will be one of the two assistants. Savard is an obvious candidate to be the other. However, it would be interesting to see Caufield rotate into that role. The 22-year-old has signed an eight-season contract and this team will belong to him and Suzuki for the foreseeable future."

It's certain that seeing Cole Caufield with an A next season would be quite news, and although he's of a young age, it would be richly deserved.
