Once again, several hopeful Montreal Canadiens have distinguished themselves in the various hockey leagues around the world.
Here is a report of these different notable performances.
Joshua Roy – Right winger – 19 years old
The Quebec winger had a breakout season last year, recording 119 points in 66 games.
Well, the 2022-2023 season has only just begun and Joshua Roy already looks set to dominate the QMJHL again.
Yesterday, No. 10 Sherbrooke Phoenix had four points, including a goal and three assists, in the Phoenix’s 8-5 win over the Moncton Wildcats.
Roy already has nine points (three goals and six assists) in four games.
Here are some highlights from his night at work yesterday.
We are in the juice!! 🤪

I decided to go back and watch this four-point effort to give people some highlights.
Here’s Joshua Roy’s first point, leading everyone to believe he’s going to shoot before giving it to David Spacek. pic.twitter.com/goZtaUuwr3

Since the start of the season, Roy has been paired with Justin Gill (19, undrafted) and Ethan Gauthier (17). Gill already has nine goals and four assists for a total of 13 points in six games, while Gauthier also has 13 points (four goals and nine assists) in six games.
The CH hope, therefore, must continue to produce at a hellish rate in the company of these two players.
Even though he had a fairly low-key training camp, Roy remains one of the strong hopefuls on the Habs org chart.
Riley Kidney – Center – 19
Always in the shadow of Joshua Roy, Riley Kidney also dominates the QMJHL.
Since returning to the Acadie-Bathurst Titan, Kidney has put in a string of strong performances.
Yesterday he scored a goal and two assists in the Titans’ 6-3 win over the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles.
The Titan number 12 already has three goals and six assists for a total of nine points in five games.
He could very well come close to his 100-point tally from last season this year, or even exceed it.
Here is his beautiful goal scored in the match.

Lane Hutson – Left-handed defender – 18 years old
Ahhhh the famous Lane Hutson. This mobile defender drafted late in the second round at level 62 by the Montreal Canadiens, who is seen as a great steal.
Well, it’s true that so far, Hutson is proving he’s stealing by completely dominating the NCAA.
It really seems too easy for him.
Sure, the two teams Hutson and his team have faced so far aren’t NCAA strong points, but still.
Hutson is a rookie on this track, and let’s just say it doesn’t really show.
He had two assists yesterday in Boston University’s 7-1 victory over the University of Waterloo.
He now has five assists in two games.
Here are your two passes from the day before.
As the second period progresses, here’s a look at Brownie’s goal that tied things up.

In this second step, Hutson is really impressive. He showed off all of his talent and vision before serving a perfect pass to his brother Quinn Hutson.
No cap, Quinn Hutson is very good at scoring goals.

It seems very easy for Lane.
Here’s another analyzed footage of Lane Hutson.
I understand that yesterday’s game was against a weak university, but you have to admit that the quality of Lane Hutson’s game is impressive. In this game, he was excellent defensively while producing a second pair of defenses and playing in the 2nd PP. pic.twitter.com/RyDLkFiTNB

In short, the CH potentially has a diamond in the rough on its hands, you just have to develop it right!
Other notable performances
- Jakub Dobes remained undefeated this season recording his fourth victory in as many games last night as Ohio State University won 4-3 against the University of Wisconsin. Dobes now has a 1.76 goals-against average and a .927 save percentage. For more details I leave here the article by my colleague Jérémie Lussier.
- Rhett Pitlick got an assist last night in the University of Minnesota’s 3-2 loss to Minnesota State University. He now has four points from four games.
- Owen Beck posted a 58% save percentage last night in the head-to-head circle in the Mississauga Steelheads’ 4-0 win over the Owen Sound Attack. Beck, however, has not scored a point in two games this season in the OHL.
