Logan Mailloux at the top of the American League (or at some point?) among defensemen

While the Montreal Canadiens gave us a great show last night in their loss to the Washington Capitals, the Laval Rocket played a second game in two days.

In fact, Jean-François Houle’s team was in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton to take on the Pittsburgh Penguins farm club.

As I explained yesterday, the Laval Rocket is involved in a very hot fight for the playoffs in the North division and, therefore, every point is fundamental.

Unfortunately, the Rocket were unable to pick up a point last night against the Penguins as they lost 6-3.

Quickly note that with his two goals, Jan Mysak joined Joshua Roy and Lias Andersson as the Rocket’s top scorers this season with 13 goals.

In short, the Rocket missed important points last night, which now places it in three points behind the Toronto Marlies and the fifth and final place that gives access to the playoffs.

Regardless, there is a nice positive for the Laval Rocket this morning, as Logan Mailloux sits atop the American League in points among defensemen thanks to his two assists last night.

On the other hand, a small detail, as my title indicates, one of the two passes obtained by Mailloux could be withdrawn according to Anthony Marcotte, which would place Mailloux with 34 points and, therefore, second in this ranking instead of in the top .

However, being at the top of the American League as a rookie defenseman is truly a great achievement for Mailloux.

Not any defenseman is capable of accumulating 11 goals and 24 (or 23?) assists for a total of 35 (or 34?) points in 47 games.

He is having a very good first season among the professionals and really shows why the CH management had selected him at the time in 31st place in 2021 despite his history that we all know.

In short, congratulations to Mailloux for reaching this point.

Now we’re wondering if he’ll get an NHL audition at the end of the season.

Kent Hughes could well decide to allow Mailloux to play a few games for CH to see what he is capable of next season.

On the other hand, while the Rocket is in the center of the great race for the playoffs, Mailloux will have to continue helping Jean-François Houle’s troops.

In short, everything remains to be followed.

A lot

– The Rocket concludes their crazy trip (three games in three days) this afternoon against the Bridgeport Islanders.

– Wow, quel but.

– An away game to watch today between the Islanders and the Rangers.
