    Struble won't be eligible sadly, he turns 20 next summer. Tuch is going to be in the mix for sure since he was in the USDP, he's already on the radar.

    Does that mean he's going to play in the AHL. Also, I expect Laval to not be one of the team since total confinement looks to be coming in Quebec

    Interesting to see. Because I think the only players that will be eligible to play in the AHL will have to be signed to an ELC. It doesn't mean Habs wouldn't sign Mysak to one. But I believe that the prospect will have to be on an NHL contract (ELC).

    Was Mysak drafted out of the CHL or was he loaned to the CHL? (Zadina situation)



    Could he play in the AHL before 20?


    Could Laval be an option if he could? (He's probably not ready yet)

    He was drafted out of the OHL. So the Habs own his rights until June 2022.

    As for the AHL, with the report that players from the OHL and WHL whose seasons won't start yet (and may not start), they can play in the AHL. But I believe the rule is that the player must be signed to an ELC. Mysak at this moment is not signed to an ELC yet.

    Joel Bouchard was on RDS with Bruno Gervais and Max Talbot the other night. I just watched the interview. And they asked him about Guhle and Mysak. Since this is the Mysak thread, I will focus on what he said about him. He mentioned how engaged Mysak is when they communicate. He's eager to learn and wants to adapt. After he was drafted, I remember reading that he was like that with the Hamilton coaching staff. That he was asking questions on what to do and where to go in certain situations.

    Bouchard says that in one of the practices, Mysak went to see him and said (and I'm paraphrasing) "Coach, I really need your help. In that last drill, I don't know how to tell you, but I'm not really good at it." :laugh:

    Bouchard said that he said it with such candor that it gives you an idea of how much he is honest and really wants to learn. Joel told him that it's not that you're not good at it. He's still young. If he was 30, he'd say he's not good enough. But at his age, it's part of the learning and that he will work with him on improving.

    i was impressed that Mysak was captain of the under 20 team at the age of 18.

    Hope his skills end up being as good as his attitude. But so far I'm liking all of our top 3 picks from this past draft - plus Farrell.

    Like this guy when we drafted him, still like him.

    What’s great is he’s going to benefit from not being rushed as he’s pretty far off the spotlight right now

    At the draft I would’ve been happy with the Habs taking him at 15th. I was ecstatic watching them call his name in the second round

    Mysak has played pro for 3 seasons in CR. But still a nice goal.

    Will be interesting to see just how much skill he has in him. He certainly will have the drive and attitude to maximize whatever potential he has.

    I already liked the pick on draft day but he's shaping up to be a really good second round gamble . There are some legit tools there to work with and he's already got a good enough two way game to where his floor has to be pretty high. Ditto for Tuch , that second round could end up really paying .

    Every report that I read on him on Mysak had him as playing as a winger in the future yet he's played center in both the WJC and in Laval. How does he look at center? Could he make a career at C or his skillset is that much more suited for wing?

    too early to say as he'll need some years to bulk up and add strength. I think it's good to keep him at center until he shows he can't. For now just let him do this thing in the OHL and WJC's next year, then the following in Laval and see how it goes.
