In an interview with the Montreal GazetteThe young midfielder explained why he believes CH can thwart predictions.
“I am passionate about getting people to lie,” he said. I think people don’t sell our skin dearly. I was talking to Sean Monahan about our training. We have a very deep team, and I think it’s not underestimated too much. This is actually not a bad thing. I think we will surprise people.”
#14 also talked about, among other things, the possibility of forming a trio with Cole Caufield and Juraj Slavkowski’s new “little”.
“Slavkovsky and I have been training together for a few weeks, skiing together. It’s nice to get to know him, it’s fun to be around. On the ice, he’s bigger than I thought. He’s working hard, he’ll be ready for camp and we’ll see how the lines are put together.”
“One thing I have noticed about him is that he loves passing the puck. He will not just take a chance at the slightest chance. He wants to play and put the puck in the net. I think we will complement each other well in that sense.”
