Montreal Canadiens prospect Jordan Harris has seen his college hockey season, and perhaps career, come to an end tonight.

The Northestern Huskies faced a tough test in their first playoff game and they fell 4-1 to the University of Massachusetts. The Hockey East playoffs are single game elimination this year, so that loss was the end of the road for the Huskies.

Harris, a third round pick of the Canadiens in 2018, was a huge part of the Huskies team.

He played on the top defence pairing all year, was the quarterback of the first power play unit and a huge part of the team’s penalty kill as well. It was his third season of college hockey and he progressed well each season. Now, it appears the next step for the Habs prospect is to sign an entry-level contract and turn pro.

Harris scored 19 points in 19 games this season for the Huskies, while playing an impressive defensive game as well. He makes shutting down the opposition look easy on a nightly basis and is more than ready for a bigger challenge.

Harris might have been ready a year ago after scoring 21 points in 33 games, but after a third season of college hockey, we are almost certain to see him sign with the Canadiens organization in the near future.

The Laval Rocket roster is already large, but adding Harris to play a depth role in the next couple weeks would be a nice boost.

The 20 year old looks to have a lot of potential and has proven at the World Juniors in the past that he is versatile enough to play the right side if needed. That should come in handy with Otto Leskinen, Xavier Ouellet and Gustav Olofsson on the left side already for the Rocket.

Whatever side of the ice he plays, the next time we see Harris playing hockey it should be with the Laval Rocket and it should be as soon as he can possibly finish a quarantine period.
