Montreal Canadiens fans don’t get a lot of breaking news in the month of August, so here at A Winning Habit, we’ll be counting down our picks for the top 31 prospects currently in the Habs organization. Each player was carefully deliberated by our writers and ranked accordingly. Today, we’re onto the 17th-ranked player, Jared Davidson.
Selected as an over-ager in the 2022 NHL Draft, Davidson was a late bloomer in junior, which led to him being passed over in consecutive drafts. He didn’t show what he was fully capable of until his fourth season with the WHL’s Seattle Thunderbirds, exploding for 42-47-89 point totals through 64 games, before scoring 29 points in 25 playoff games during the 2021-22 campaign.
