Adam Nicholas firmly believes that Sean Farrell is the best talent


As everyone knows, the Montreal Canadiens have several young hopefuls in their organization. With the very recent repechage, CH has been able to add several names to its already well-stocked hope bank.

Among his prospects that were already seen as the best prospects on the Habs roster is American striker Sean Farrell.

Farrell was drafted by CH in the fourth round (124th overall) in 2020. At the time, several analysts and supporters (including Cole Caufield) already saw this choice as a potential theft given Farrell’s abilities.

Well, two years later, Farrell, now 20, continues to develop very well and is considered to be one of the Habs’ best prospects.

While many CH fans are enthusiastic about Farrell, so are CH hockey development director, Adam Nicholas.

Indeed, for Nicholas, the Canadian has a leading talent in Farrell.

And if there is anyone who knows Farrell well in the Habs org chart, it’s Nicholas. The latter previously worked with Farrell when he was part of Chicago Steel’s skill development and players group in the USHL.

Nicholas was then able to work with Farrell again during the CH training camp in Brossard.

“It’s phenomenal. She can read ice. She is playing chess while everyone else is playing checkers. This guy is going to be very, very special. He thinks about the game and has elite tools; his shot is really very underrated. He has a blister stroke. And he is an elite passerby. “

For Nicholas, the development context that Farrell needs is very specific.

“The best development context is to give him more experience against men. That’s why he went to the Junior World Cup; to gain experience. He was very good at the Olympics. Everyone has seen how good he is. You just have to continually give him experience because he is smaller than the others. “

We remember well how much Farrell had impressed during the Olympic Games with the American team. He was then playing against men, which is exactly what Farrell needs to continue his development well, according to Nicholas.

In short, Nicholas sees no doubts, Farrell will be an impact player for CH, and that, soon. For now, Farrell will return to play in the NCAA with Harvard University this season.
