Dennis Pajot

A statistical review of the Montreal Canadiens prospects and their performance for the past week.

The Three Stars

1. Brady Vail

With the regular season in the OHL closed out, Brady Vail finished his regular season campaign in style with the Windsor Spitfires, being a factor on every goal they would score during his two games this week.. Vail would mark a pair of assists in his first game of the week, a 3-2 loss to the Erie Otters. He would collect another two points in the following game, scoring a goal and assist in a 3-2 shootout win over the Kitchener Rangers. Vail finished the season with 32 goals and 51 assists in 67 games, which has him at 19th overall in league scoring for the year. Brady Vail was drafted in the 4th round, 94th overall by the Montreal Canadiens in the 2012 NHL Draft.

2. Charles Hudon

As the regular season concludes across the junior hockey ranks, Charles Hudon finished his week off in style with the Baie-Comeau Drakkar. After going without a point in a 4-0 victory over his former team, the Chicoutimi Saguenéens, he would ring off a hat trick in his following game, a rematch with Chicoutimi in a 9-2 victory for Baie-Comeau. Hudon finished the season 14th overall in league scoring in the QMJHL and was also the scoring leader on Baie-Comeau in points and had the highest points-per-game average at 1.33. Charles Hudon was drafted in the 5th round, 122nd overall by the Montreal Canadiens in the 2012 NHL Draft.

3. Connor Crisp

With the regular season ending for Connor Crisp in the OHL, he decided to end the season on a scoring pace heading into the playoffs. Crisp scored a goal in what would be a 5-3 loss to the North Bay Battalion to start his week. He would collect another goal in a 7-4 loss to the Belleville Bulls in his next outing. Crisp would finish off his regular season helping lead Sudbury to a win, scoring  a goal and assist in a 2-1 win over the Oshawa Generals.
