Forward Jonathan Huberdeau (Jonathan Huberdeau) still has the dream of wearing the Montreal Canadiens uniform.
When asked if he hopes to develop in the big hockey market one day, the 27-year-old athlete lets himself-a few seconds-imagine himself wearing a blue, white and red vest.
“Of course, you want to know if you will be able to play for Montreal. This is a beautiful city and that is where I came from. The people of St. Jerome said that this has always been what Montreal dreams of.
However, Huberdor quickly returned to reality.
“But now, I’m trying not to think about it. I’m in Florida and have fun there. I really want to participate in the Florida Championships and then go to Montreal.”
To be sure, many Sainte-Flanelle fans now want to see the Panthers win the Stanley Cup as soon as possible.
Indeed, the 2020-2021 season of the Florida club is currently progressing smoothly. The team competed with the Carolina Hurricanes and the Tampa Bay Lightning for the highest rating in the Central District. Barring a disaster, the Panthers will enter the playoffs for the second time because Huberdeau wears his own color.
Quebecers believe that the recent training success is due to several changes made by the new general manager Bill Zito during the last offseason.
“I think Bill Zito did a great job. When we arrived at the training camp, there were eight to nine new players. “It makes a difference,” Huberdo said.
“When you win, it will definitely be more fun in the locker room. Our chemistry is different this year and we have a better time. We want to win. Every night, we all know that we have a chance to win.”
In the 2011 draft, Huberdo was selected as the third overall pick, and his success in the national league has been consistent. However, in the past three seasons, he has become an elite player on the Bateman Tour, scoring more than 1 point per game.
