Cole Caufield Anticipated to Have a Big Season - Season Projection, Martin St. Louis and More

There is no doubt that Martin St. Louis is the picture-perfect head coach for Cole Caufield. The two have similar playing styles and physical attributes. Both players possessed a small frame yet were capable scorers and offensive weapons for their teams. Caufield and St. Louis had instant chemistry last season.

Truth be told, Cole Caufield was struggling during the first half of the past 2021-22 season, till the hiring of St. Louis occurred, magic hit. Prior to the St. Louis hiring Caufield lost the ability to put the puck into the back of the net. As a result, the youngster was demoted to the AHL by the Habs' management.


In a brief six-game stint with the Laval Rockets, Caufield was successful, recording five points in six games.

Rejoining the Habs and gaining key guidance from the newest Canadiens coach gave Caufield confidence. The winger ended the season back at the top of the Calder Trophy voting, while also putting up 43 points in 67 games.

At 5-foot-7-inches, Caufield is poised to have a terrific season under a head coach that knows how it feels to play as a shorter, less physically impactful player.


The breakout season is projected to have a breakout season, and it should not be out of question that Caufield reaches the 75-85 point mark, along with a career-high of 40+ goals.

Cole Caufield, a player that is anticipated to break-out and have a terrific 2022-23 season.

Trent Frederic Should NOT be a Bruins Regular this Season

Trent Frederic is an interesting piece in the Bruins organization. Frederic was a former first round pick of the B's during the 2016 NHL Draft. And some may argue that he has yet to live up to the high expectations placed on him when he was selected 29th overall. Frederic is a player that brings physicality into the Bruins lineup. But his physicality comes with other consequences. Penalties! Frederic is a player notorious for getting unnecessary penalties. Does his physical play outweigh his dumb penalties? Definitely not! Frederic was eighth on the team in hits and was fourth on the team in penalty minutes. This led to Frederic being benched and scratched in the midst of the season. One shift for Trent Frederic after the interference penalty. Benched. — Fluto Shinzawa (@FlutoShinzawa) May 5, 2022 Offensively, Frederic was not much better. In 60 games last season, he was only able to record eight goals and ten assists. For a former first-round pick, you'd definitely expect be

2022 NHL Draft Recap - Grading ALL First-Round Picks

The conclusion of the NHL Draft is the beginning of the journey for the top-ranked NHL prospects. Here is my grade of each NHL first-round draft pick: 1. Juraj Slafkovsky  - Montreal Canadiens (A) The Habs started off the NHL Entry Draft with a bold move. Montreal ended up drafting 6'4'' power-forward Juraj Slafkovsky rather than the predicted Shane Wright.   2. Simon Nemac  - New Jersey Devils (A-) Simon Nemac was ranked as the top defenceman coming into the 2022 NHL Entry Draft. The right-handed d-man is a mobile two-way defenceman. Nemac was ranked third among European skaters by NHL Central Scouting.   3. Logan Cooley  - Arizona Coyotes (A)  The University of Minnesota commit was second on his USHL team in points, with 27 goals and 48 assists. Due to his elusive skating and skill, Cooley has high-end offensive talent.   4. Shane Wright  - Seattle Kraken (A+) Shane Wright was the biggest fall on the NHL Draft board. Seattle picked up a capable first-line center

He would also suit up for three USHL playoff games, unfortunately without recording any points.  Moldenhauer would
