Zone exit, season 5 | Episode 26: Nick Suzuki’s poise inspired his club

With nine points in seven games, Nick Suzuki was the big leader for the Habs during the long holiday trip. Beyond his offensive production, the captain seems animated by a rare confidence, which reinforces his status as a man of confidence in the eyes of his coach. Our journalists Guillaume Lefrançois and Simon-Olivier Lorange discuss it with Louis Jean and Antoine Roussel, from 98.5 FM. The surplus of defensive personnel among the Canadians, the beginnings of the Professional Women’s Hockey League as well as Canada’s discomfiture at the World Juniors are also among the topics addressed by our panelists.

Something that I find revealing about Nick Suzuki, the poise he shows, is when he scores goals. I feel less embarrassed about taking shots.

Simon-Olivier Lorange

A young player [Juraj Slafkovsky] who, at 19, is also involved defensively, without the puck, it’s really impressive.
