Montreal Canadiens: Kirby Dach makes a major statement and fans love it!

The more time passes, the more we realize that Kent Hughes' plan is simple and straightforward: to build a good team of young, dynamic players.

That's why he acquired Kirby Dach last summer and Alex Newhook this year, in addition to giving space to young veterans like Nick Suzuki and Cole Caufield.

Getting back to Kirby Dach, he's still blossoming in Montreal and we haven't seen anything yet. He's only 22 years old. Sounds promising!

In addition to his fine performances on the ice last year, we could see that the young man was having fun, and he made a big statement to that effect.

"It's incredible to be playing in Montreal. It's the first time since junior that I've had this much fun.

It's really nice to see such comments from a player who used to play alongside Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews, to name but two. You can see that the pleasure comes not only from the teammates you play with, but also from the organization as a whole.

The Habs are becoming a destination of choice for players from all corners of the league, and with over 20 million dollars in payroll expected for the 2024-25 season, that's very promising for the future.
