With Montreal Canadiens prospect Miguël Tourigny making his debut for Ducla Trencin in the Tipos Extraliga, it was time to get one of our longstanding friends Matej Deraj, scout for McKeens Hockey, on the podcast to give us his first impressions on the young Canadian’s first two games as a professional.
His speed was the key take away from Deraj, who also gives us an idea of what to expect from Tourigny in this season, and what to expect from Trencin in the rest of the season.
