Montreal Canadiens prospect Logan Mailloux fired home his first goal in the OHL this season with a bomb from the circle.
Mailloux, who was playing in just his third game of the season, was able to fire home his first goal of the season and immediately get the monkey off his back. The 6’3, 217lbs rearguard has come close a few times so far this season, but made no mistake when he was fed a beautiful dish on a 2-on-1 which expanded the London Knight’s lead to 3-1.
With Logan Mailloux
having been given an ELC and returned to the London Knights earlier this month, the expectations for him in London will be quite high, as he will want to pick up right where he left off last season prior to his shoulder injury.
“The expectation for him in London this year is that he’s going to come in and push to be the top guy in London,” said agent Dylan Liptrap on the expectations for Mailloux upon his return to the London Knights
. “They’ve got a lot of good depth on the backend that’s going to push him to get better and become of of the OHL’s go-to guys.”
WIth Mailloux making his season debut with the Knights this past Wednesday, London has seemingly taken a step up in their game, as Mailloux has greatly helped their transition game. He was able to notch his first point of the season on Friday night after his heavy point shot created a juicy rebound that Diaco tapped in.
The Montreal Canadiens prospect has been tasked with jumping into the Knights’ top defensive pairing and is being given some tough defensive missions right off the bat. He’s slowly begun to shake off the rush in his game and seems to be settling with the puck with each passing game.
It’s looking like Mailloux is for a very productive season.
