Canadian 2022-2023: looking to the future

Canadian 2022-2023: looking to the future


Cuvée 2022

Filip Mesar 

5 ft 9 in | 176 lbs

› 1er round (26th)

Right winger/center

Laval (AHL) or Kitchener (OHL)

In the shadow of the top of the class, Juraj Slafkovsky, Mesar had a great rookie camp and he continued his momentum at big camp. At 18, the Slovak will continue his apprenticeship in North America. He has two options for him: the Laval Rocket or the Kitchener Rangers of the Ontario Junior League.


Owen Beck 

6ft | 185 lbs

2e tower (33e)


Mississauga (OHL)

Clever. This quality comes up constantly when describing Beck. He caught the eye in his direction at camp. He's not just very good in the face-off circle, he generates several turnovers and he has a good offensive touch. He will be a dominant player in the Ontario Junior League.

Lane Hutson 

5 ft 9 in | 148 lbs

2e rook (62e)


Boston University (NCAA)

Small, but fast and very agile. Hutson, who many scouts were imagining as a pick at the end of the first round, will make his NCAA debut with the Terriers. He is also expected to represent the United States at the World Juniors. The little defender showed all his talent during the development camp, but he could not participate in the rookie tournament.

Cuvée 2021

Logan Mailloux 

6 ft 3 in | 208 lbs

1st turn (31e)


London (OHL)< /p>

Suspended for several months and victim of a shoulder injury, Mailloux hardly played last season. He wore the Knights uniform for only 12 games. He will need miles this season to make up for lost time. He remains in search of redemption after his conviction for a sex crime in Sweden.

Riley Kidney 

5 ft 11 in | 176 lbs

2e tower (63e)


Acadie-Bathurst (QMJHL)

Author of a season of 100 points (30 goals, 70 assists) in 66 games with the Titan in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, Kidney received an invitation to the World Junior Championship this summer in Edmonton. However, he played a secondary role with the Canadian team. He should receive another invitation this winter. 

Joshua Roy 

6ft | 193 lbs

5e turn (150e)

Left winger

Sherbrooke (LHJMQ)

The CH, under the era of Trevor Timmins, probably achieved a stroke of genius with Roy's distant selection at the 2021 auction He established himself as one of the best forwards in the country in the junior ranks with 119 points in 66 games. He will be a key player on the Canadian team at the World Juniors. 

William Trudeau 

6ft | 189 lbs

4e tower (113e)

› Defender

Charlottetown (QMJHL)

In the shadow of the other big hopes on the blue line, Trudeau conquered the leading heads of the team with a very good rookie tournament in Buffalo. He wore the CH uniform for a preparatory match. Aged 20, he could make the jump with the Laval Rocket.

Cuvée 2020

Sean Farrell 

5 ft 9 in | 175 lbs

4e round (124e)

Left winger

Harvard (NCAA)

Farrell gained experience last year with appearances at the Beijing Olympics and the World Championship in Helsinki. In addition to defending the colors of the United States, the dynamic attacker served as an offensive engine at Harvard with a harvest of 28 points in 24 games. He will play a second season for the Crimson. 

Jan Mysak 

5 ft 11 in | 182 lbs

2e turn (48e)

› Center

Laval (AHL)

Mysak is not the most spectacular center, but he remains a cerebral player. Captain of the Czech Republic at the World Juniors for the second year in a row, he amassed 64 points in 61 games with the Hamilton Bulldogs of the Ontario Junior League. He should logically act as the center of one of the last two lines with the Laval Rocket. 

Luke Tuch 

6 ft 2 in | 203 lbs

› 2th turn (47e)

› Winger

› Boston University (NCAA)< /strong>

Tuch belongs to the category of mysterious hopes of the Habs. Described as a power forward at 6'2″, 203 lbs, the younger brother of Alex (of the Buffalo Sabers) presented very modest statistics in his first two seasons in the NCAA. He will need to take a giant step forward this year. 

Jakub Dobes 

6 ft 5 in | 197 lbs

5e tower (136e)

› Guardian

› Ohio State (NCAA)

Strictly on the numbers, Dobes captures attention with a 21-12-2 record, 2.26 GAA and .936 save percentage. The Czech native goaltender received consideration for the Mike Richter Trophy, awarded to the NCAA's top goaltender of the year. At 21, the big guy will return to Ohio State for a second season.

Cuvée 2019

Jayden Struble

6 ft | 205 lbs

2e tower (46e)

› Defender

Northeastern (NCAA)

Like Jordan Harris last year, Struble chose to continue his academic journey with a fourth season with the Huskies . Injured more often than not in recent seasons, the robust defender will need to experience a good campaign in order to convince Jeff Gorton and Kent Hughes to offer him a contract.
