NHL Updates: Steeves Tears up AHL, Janmark Promotion, Gauthier Update, Dach Resurges (TOR, EDM, PHI, MTL)

Updates and rumors are flying around the NHL as it enters the thick of a long season. For instance, Alex Steeves, a prospect for the Leafs, has created an outstanding season in the American Hockey League. Will he soon be worthy of a call-up? Connor McDavid seems to have a new linemate up in Edmonton. The Oilers have announced the promotion of Mattias Janmark to the first-line. In addition, Cutter Gauthier, the top prospect for the Flyers, is off to a great start playing for Boston College. And lastly, was a trade all that Kirby Dach needed? The Montreal forward has seen a resurgence in offensive production. Steeves Tearing up the AHL Remember the name Alex Steeves (at least if you're a Leafs fan). After turning up to training camp in impressive shape, the underrated forward turned heads throughout the preseason. Although he will eventually be sent down to the minors, Steeves has yet to take his foot off the gas pedal.   Steeves has by far been the most impressive prospect playing

Players Likely to Breakout this Season - Dach, Merkley, Samsonov, Swayman, Zadina

The NHL season is just around the corner, with training camp starting up in a few weeks and preseason games scheduled for mid-September. Here are five NHL players that are likely to break out during the upcoming season: #5 Kirby Dach - Montreal Canadiens Dach was playing in a horrible situation with the Chicago Blackhawks. The team was basically tanking in the hopes of a high draft pick. With the Canadiens, it is likely that Dach will have a role on the top offensive lines of a stacked Habs offense.   For the Blackhawks last season, Dach played in 70 games, recording just nine goals and 17 assists for a total of 26 points. The former third-overall pick during the 2019 NHL Entry Draft struggled to produce offense throughout the season.   Dach is a player that plays with solid size, standing at 6-foot-4-inches. He plays a well-rounded game and uses his speed to beat defenders. He is a playmaker who protects the puck well.   Dach was acquired through a trade from Chicago to Montreal

The Depthed Forward Group of the Montreal Canadiens

Although the Montreal Canadiens came in last place last season and were awarded the first-overall pick, you shouldn't count them out of contending in the stacked Atlantic Division. Ever since the firing of Mark Bergevin, new Habs GM Kent Hughes has been at the helm, making bold moves. Forward Depth : The Montreal Canadiens will enter the 2022–23 season as a very deep team. Hughes had a big offseason, bringing in Kirby Dach, Sean Monahan, Evgeni Dadonov, and even Juraj Slafkovsk√Ĺ! Montreal is extremely deep up-the middle with the likes of Nick Suzuki, Christian Dvorak, Jonathan Drouin, Sean Monahan, and potentially even Kirby Dach. Currently Montreal's forward group consists of: Brendan Gallagher ($6,500,000)  Josh Anderson ($5,500,000)  Evgeni Dadonov ($5,000,000) Joel Armia ($3,400,000) Nick Suzuki ($7,875,000) Christian Dvorak ($4,450,000)  Jake Evans ($1,700,000) Kirby Dach ($3,000,000) Mike Hoffman ($4,500,000)  Paul Byron ($3,400,000)  Rem Pitlick ($1,100,000)  Juraj Slafk
