2. Laval Rocket
The Laval Rocket will play once again; it has been 337 days since the team last played, but they play tonight against the Belleville Senators. I don’t normally watch more than 10 Rocket games a year but I have a feeling that won’t be the case this year. I don’t know how good the team will be, but they should be a whole lot of fun to watch.
Habs fans will be able to watch Jan Mysak, Kaiden Guhle, Raphael Harvey-Pinard, Joel Teasdale, Arsen Khisamutdinov, Jesse Ylonen, Gianni Fairbrother, Jacob Leguerrier, Cam Hillis and Vasily Demchenko play their first North-American professional games this season, along with returning players who could really breakout such as Cayden Primeau, Josh Brook, Cale Fleury and Ryan Poehling. Excited yet? Wait until you learn that Jordan Weal could even play some games this season, the Joel Bouchard powerplay will be invincible!
This roster infused with young, drafted talent will undoubtedly hit some, if not many, bumps – not that it matters too much this season as there will not be any AHL playoffs – but they will be fun to watch and Habs fans really should catch at least a few of their games to see just what it is they have in these young prospects, I sure will. If you are interested in tuning into some games, RDS and TSN 690 Radio will broadcast every Rocket home game and all eight games scheduled this month will be home games!
