Suzuki was the prized prospect that the Canadiens received in the Max Pacioretty trade but was unable to crack the opening night roster. The 2017 No.13 overall pick returns to Owen Sound, where he has scored 87 goals with 109 assists (196 points) in 129 games over the last two seasons.
The Canadiens have acquired Nick Suzuki, Tomas Tatar and a 2019 2nd Round Pick from the Golden Knights for Max Pacioretty.
The Golden Knights signed Nick Suzuki to a three-year, entry-level contract.
The Golden Knights select Nick Suzuki with the No.13 overall pick.
Suzuki excels as a playmaker, but he also showed off some goal scoring ability in 2016-17, scoring 45 goals to go along with 51 assists (96 points) in 65 games with the Owen Sound Attack. Suzuki is a smart centre who makes those around him play better.
