The excellence of Nick Suzuki

Photo by David Kirouac/Icon Sportswire via It was a great night for the rookie against the Islanders. Nick Suzuki is very good at hockey, that everyone knew the moment he joined the Montreal Canadiens organization. Since graduating to the professional ranks over the summer and battling his way to an NHL job, he has only gotten better with each passing game. There were glimpses of skill, and another gear, but Suzuki played quietly but effectively to start the year. Against the New York Islanders on Tuesday night, he brought his game up to another level, showing that there is still so...

In today’s links, conversations begin concerning the Devils’ star forward, Nick Suzuki is confident the Habs’ fortunes are changing, a look at the best lines in hockey, and more on the Bill Peters situation. Montreal Canadiens news and notes Trade speculation is heating up regarding Taylor Hall, and Montreal is in the mix. [Sportsnet | TSN] Playing deeper in his net is the reason for Price’s struggles, and he’s playing deeper to have less distance to travel on all the cross-ice passes that are connecting. Both goaltender and defence need to work together to fix those issues....

Getting a power play for a chance to get the game back on even terms, a perfect no-look seam pass from Nick Suzuki fooled every Flyer on the ice, and Tomas Tatar just had to hit the open net to score his second of the game.

Nick Suzuki’s Unforeseen Offensive Impact and Where it May Take Him

Nick Suzuki has been the Montreal Canadiens best player over the past six games and the sky certainly seems to be the limit for his development.

Micro Analysis: Max Domi and Nick Suzuki are developing chemistry

Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports Two players who seem most comfortable at centre are now working well on the same line. Saturday night will be hard to forget. The only hope is that this awful performance becomes a wakeup call for a Montreal Canadiens squad that decides to play to the level of their opponent, or worse, expect easy games and slow down the pace of their play. Their identity is one of a hard-working group. They score goals off turnovers because they out-work opponents and close off space. That didn’t happen versus the New York Rangers. And not just for half of the game;...

With several players, including Craig Anderson, looking for the puck in the crease, it actually spilled several feet out in front of the net.

Montreal Canadiens: Trading Ryan Poehling, Nick Suzuki or Jesperi Kotkaniemi Is Inevitable

The Montreal Canadiens have gone from no center depth to plenty of it pretty much overnight. There is no way to find ice time for everyone, so trading one of their young centers is inevitable.
