    Pretty sure Vejdemo won't play in the A if he's sent down, or at least he has a clause of that kind in his contract.

    He hasnt decided yet.

    "It’s no problem for me to play in SHL or AHL. I think I’ll be able to develop very well in both places, but I’ll take that decision later when I know more."

    Didn't see that, really like the fact that he will think about it !

    Wonder if Bouchard talked with him about the incoming season.

    Vejdemo, like all kids, must follow social medias (he's on Twitter, so yeah), he probably saw how everyone was ecstatic about Bouchard hiring, must've thought about it then... (I guess)

    Vejdemo signed the contract way before Bouchard got hired.
    Those comments are from at the time he signed the contract too, so Bouchard didnt influence what he did/said.

    I think he will be fine with playing in the ahl. He knows that if he wants to make it to the nhl, then playing in the ahl gives him a much better chance than playing in Sweden.

    Well, thanks for all the clarifications, I don't know what I did read, but twas wrong for the most part on that matter.

    You're right about him playing in the A, he needs to figure the more physical NA style, smaller rinks, etc...

    Do we have a running count of all Bouchardian signings for the Rocket/ECHL teams so far?

    He's RFA. It's possible they don't give him a qualifying offer, but he seemed to be productive for Lehigh Valley, so I expect he'll get one. If they don't, he's UFA.

    He probably goes on waivers in the fall.

    Bouchard
    Étienne Marcoux at eliteprospects.com Goalie (good last year for Indy Fuel ECHL)
    T.J. Melancon at eliteprospects.com RH Defenceman (Very good offensively with Norfolk Admirals ECHL 1st scoring D, 4th skater overall on team, 8th scoring D in ECHL)
    Morgan Adams-Moisan at eliteprospects.com (prob also Ducharme since he played for both) RW (Quintupled his production from last year)
    Alexandre Alain at eliteprospects.com C/RW (good progression every year, was very good in PO last year and awesome this year)

    Bouchard/Ducharme/Audette?
    Phélix Martineau at eliteprospects.com C (steady progression, but unimpressive in QMJHL. 3pts 3 games in reg season with Komets ECHL and impressive with 8pts/10 games in the PO 4th ppg on team, played only 10/18 games so tied 6th overall points. 3rd U21 in points in PO for all ECHL)

    So, 5 so far? Bet you there will be a few more before the summer is over.

    That's before we sign free agents. I believe the Rocket will make the playoffs this season. They will add a Terry or an Holloway type veteran for sure.

    A few months ago I would've said this is bad news, but with Bouchard there now I am looking forward to seeing Vejdemo in Laval.

    I'm starting to believe the 2018 summer will be all about Habs beautiful men.

    same here, did not want him in Laval with Lefebvre, but with Bouchard I'm much more interested.

    Korostelev won't be coming back.


    Nothing yet on David Broll, Éric Gélinas, Jordan Boucher, Niki Petti, Anthony Beauregard, Yannick Veilleux, Thomas Ebbing and Stefan Leblanc.

    I could see David Broll being brought back to be the vet tough guy (to go with rookie tough guy Pezzeta). I could see Boucher come back since he had a decent year.

    We have plenty of centers at the AHL level now with Evans, Vejdemo, Audette, Alain, Verbeek and Pezetta, so I don't see Petti, Beauregard and Ebbing brought back unless they want some ECHL depth.

    We can do better than Gélinas and Leblanc on D. Plenty of UDFA to sign (Galipeau, Holwell etc.) and pretty sure some vets will be available July 1st if we want more.

    Not a huge loss although he was serviceable
