2017 Top 30 Habs Prospects: #1 Ryan Poehling

A highlight reel often inflates the perception of a player’s ability. It makes sense, as a selection of highlights are the best players the player made that season, but lacking in nuance.

2017 Top 30 Habs Prospects: #4 Joni Ikonen

If one prospect in the Canadiens organization who exemplifies multidimensionality in attack, it’s Joni Ikonen. Not only does the 5’11” forward have a reputation as a sniper, he’s a legitimately talented playmaker who creates lanes like few prospects can. In any given year, glancing over the NHL’s top scorers is generally filled with multidimensional offensive […]
