Cole Caufield Is One Step Closer To His NHL Debut

via Sportsnet,

The Montreal Canadiens have recalled forward Cole Caufield from the Laval Rocket, their AHL affiliate, on Friday and assigned him to their taxi squad.

The team has not officially said when Caufield could make his NHL debut, but the earliest date would be Saturday night against the Ottawa Senators.

Caufield, who won the 2021 Hobey Baker Award as the best player in the NCAA, was one of the most prolific scorers in college hockey this year, scoring 30 goals and adding 22 assists in 31 games for the University of Wisconsin.

In two AHL games with the Rocket, Caufield scored three goals and added an assist.

Montreal also recalled goaltender Cayden Primeau on an emergency basis.
