Eric Engels

Eric Engels
Juraj Slafkovsky had just completed a game that saw him extend his franchise record-breaking point streak to eight, but after not tying the game in the final 1:10 of play, he was anything but satisfied. Talk about holding yourself to a high standard.

Canadiens' Slafkovsky, Guhle part of group committed to accelerated development
Eric Engels
The Canadiens have created an environment that has at least partially influenced the players to take ownership of their own development. They have a number of players taking the same approach, and that’s the way it has to be for them to keep advancing in their build.
