It's Cayden Primeau's Time to Shine in Montreal

Cayden Primeau is regarded as the top goaltending prospect in the Montreal Canadiens organization. The American netminder spent most of the past season playing in the AHL for the Laval Rocket. But, due to the fact that Carey Price will not return this season, The Habs' net is destined for the young netminder Primeau. After making his NHL debut during the 2019-2020 season, Primeau was once regarded as the next netminder for the Montreal Canadiens. Although he has struggled at the NHL level ever since, Montreal management has been impressed by the youngster's development in the AHL.   Last season, Primeau spent the majority of the season playing in the AHL. He suited up for 33 AHL games, recording a 2.94 goals-against-average and a.909 save percentage. But, what caught most eyes was Primeau's stellar postseason performance.

Could a trade and a fresh start be warranted for the prospect? For sure. Last season, Studnicka spent most of his time with the Providence Bruins in the AHL. He suited up for 41 games and scored a pretty decent 35 points. Studnicka, ended up playing 15 NHL games with Boston and only scoring thr

Boston Give Lyle to Blues

Brady Lyle, a defenseman for the Boston Bruins, has been traded to the St. Louis Blues in exchange for future considerations. Lyle was previously signed by the Bruins from the Ontario Hockey League's North Bay Battalion. Lyle has spent the last two seasons in the American Hockey League with the Providence Bruins. Since he arrived at Bruins Prospect Camp, Bruins fans and scouts have been excited about their latest signee. Many praised his strength and offensive prowess. Last season, the defenseman scored 14 points in 25 games. Lyle has struggled both offensively and defensively this season. He has 9 points in 48 games and a -7. Lyle's statistics convinced Bruins GM Don Sweeney that he was not the right fit for the organization. Lyle's move to St. Louis should jolt him into action and help him improve his performance. Lyle would be unable to be called up by the Blues this season because he was traded after the trade deadline. The Blues assigned Lyle to the AHL's Springfie
