The Devils would be interested in acquiring Cayden Primeau


Before the Laval Rocket playoff run started, there were serious doubts about Cayden Primeau’s future. The young CH goalkeeper had some good times in AHL but had problems dominate. And in the NHL, it was far from very convincing.

However, Primeau lived up to his reputation as a player of great opportunity in the last series, he who was the best player in the Rockets and who led the club to a game in the Calder Cup final. We felt confident and is paid off big time. Much great.

Primeau has thus brought back his name as a long-term option in front of Habs’ network, but not only: it has also attracted the attention of the other teams of the Bettman circuit.

Jimmy Murphy reports it from Montreal Hockey nowwho also notes that the Devils are among the teams that would be interested in his services.

An unnamed executive Murphy spoke with notes that Primeau proved he had to intestines and who has a mental toughness that was a little shy in previous years. The talent has always been there for Primeau, the rest has been demonstrated in the last few weeks.

It’s a funny coincidence to see Primeau being tied to the Devils, who just grew up in New Jersey. He is not Born there (he was born in Michigan), but his family moved to New Jersey a few months after Cayden was born.

Of course, Primeau’s value hasn’t risen to the point where the Devils are willing to give the second pick in the draft for his services, but if ever CH were interested in that pick, perhaps Primeau could be a part of it. package understand it. It will take a lot longer, but it could be one of them (although I doubt the scenario will materialize).

Murphy notes, however, that Kent Hughes would like to wait to find out more about Carey Price’s health before thinking about a transaction involving a guard from his organization. Therefore, as with many issues to be resolved in CH this summer, Price’s knee condition will be a determining factor.

In short, a dossier to keep an eye on, but (probably) not in the short term. If another goalkeeper from the organization shines next season, though, maybe Primeau will be available then, but I think it will take a more than interesting offer to get him out of Montreal.
