Canadiens Prospect Watch: Sean Farrell Dominant In NCAA



Montreal Canadiens prospect Sean FArrell Habs News

Sean Farrell

We’ve discussed Farrell’s impressive scoring rate at length this season, and with good reason.

The 21-year-old forward hasn’t just improved his overall production, he’s become one of the best players from an offensive standpoint.

Farrell earned just one point in Harvard’s 5-4 win over Colgate on Friday night, which actually lowered his points per game pace.

He followed it up with an impressive four-point game against Cornell, setting up four consecutive goals for the Crimson, the first three of which were primary assists. With four assists, he also set a career-high for production in a single game.

With the four points in the bank, Farrell pushed his points-per-game ratio to 1.62, which is the second-highest number among all players in the NCAA. He trails only 2023 top prospect Adam Fantilli, who has 1.77 points per game for Michigan this season.

In all likelihood, Farrell will sign his entry-level contract at the end of the season, and consequently, make his NHL debut for the Canadiens.

He’s far and away the Habs’ most NHL-ready prospect, and not just due to his offensive awareness. Yes, he’s scored 12 goals and 18 assists in just 20 games, but more importantly, he’s playing well in all three zones and is being used in almost every situation.

The competition is stiff, but considering he’s a fourth-round pick, no other Canadiens prospect has improved their stock as much as Farrell this season.


Other Canadiens prospect news and notes

  • Oliver Kapanen scored his eighth goal of the season for Kalpa.

  • Riley Kidney continues to produce at a ridiculous rate for the Gatineau Olympiques. He scored twice and added two assists in the Olympiques’ 11-6 win over Val D’Or. In just eight games with his new team, Kidney has hit the scoresheet 22 times.

  • Lane Hutson was held off the scoresheet during….haha, okay, no one was buying that. The defensive phenom earned four assists in two games his week in Boston University’s back-to-back games against Boston College.
  • Emil Heineman scored a fantastic breakaway goal for Leksand, his fifth goal of the season.
