Nick Suzuki’s Breakout Season: A Silver Lining for the Montreal Canadiens

Montreal Canadiens' Nick Suzuki achieves a remarkable milestone, becoming the youngest player on the team to score 25 goals and 40 assists in a single season since 1989-90.

In a challenging season for the Montreal Canadiens, there is at least one bright spot: Nick Suzuki has become the youngest player on the team to achieve 25 goals and 40 assists in a single season since Stephane Richer in 1989-90. The 23-year-old captain has made significant strides in his development since being drafted 13th overall by the Vegas Golden Knights in the 2017 draft, before being traded to the Canadiens.

This season, Suzuki tallied 25 goals and 40 assists for a total of 65 points in 81 games played. This performance surpasses his previous career-high of 61 points in 82 games during the last season as he continues to build his point totals every year. Although the Canadiens have faced a difficult season, sitting second to last in the Eastern Conference ahead of only the Columbus Blue Jackets, Suzuki’s growth is a positive sign for the team’s future.

The Canadiens are in the process of building up their young core, focusing on nurturing and developing their players as they work towards a brighter future. Suzuki’s development is still looking bright, as he continues to develop into a leader and a great NHL player.

As the NHL draft approaches, the Canadiens will look to acquire another high draft pick to bolster their roster and complement their existing young talents. With Suzuki’s impressive performance as a foundation, the organization has reason to be optimistic about the potential for growth and success in the coming years.
