A 7th for a goalie, sure.
High upside goalie. Has the tools, needs to put it together.
Some people had him 80ish overall. Nice pick up for a 7th round pick.
father is Keith Primeau
Hasek was selected 199th too
Whose career was ended by a Canadien.
6'3 17 year old going into the NCAA. Certainly the type of goalie prospect I would draft.
funny that the pick was from Philly and they took Primeau.
Mckenzie had him ranked 84th!!
How did we get this pick?
Keith Primeau's son. USHL product.
Lefty, 6'2, 186 lbs., 17 years old. NHL Central Scouting ranked him 7h best goalie. NHL Network had him as no. 54 prospect.
2016-17, 3.16 GAA, .895 save %.
Habs are well-stocked in goalie prospects, probably sets up a trade.
What did they trade for that pick????
Next years pick
A 2018 7th rounder.
And they'll keep doing it next year too.
A 2018 7th round pick.
This is exactly what happened last year. Habs traded their 2017 7th rounder to Winnipeg for their 2016 7th rounder to select Henrik Arvidsson. This year, they got their 2017 7th rounder back from Philly for the Habs' 2018 7th rounder. And if the trend continues this way, Habs will get their 2018 7th rounder back from someone for their 2019 7th rounder.
First goalie drafted since Hayden Hawkey in 2014
Here are a few thoughts from a write-up I did on Primeau who is one of my favourite prospects in this draft:
The main issue of course is consistency. A year in the USHL being the starter and then into the NCAA the next year would really allow him to flourish.
Habs are hilarious. They just keep trading next year's 7th for this year.
I have no problems with this. By the time he even gets to the AHL, it's probably 3 years.
By then Fucale is gone, Lindgren may or not still be in the organization. Ditto McNiven. Timing is good.
Always keep good goalie depth.
We also have Hayden Hawkey who had a solid year, nice to have lots of depth at the position spread out in different leagues.
sounds good to me
He was in le journal de Montreal in 2012 (!)
