He had a pretty good season so who knows. He might be a solid keeper for Laval

Perhaps another benefit to having Reinbacher in Switzerland last season. Habs had probably more eyes there than any other team and snagged the Swiss leagues best goalie. Will be interesting to see how he does in Laval.

No relation to my knowledge. Just had a elite level year in Switzerland, so worth the gamble. The reason Laval didn't make the playoffs last year was the goalies were a tire fire, so it doesn't hurt to get someone like this.

Must be a 1way contract then.
They make more money in Switzerland 🇨🇭 compared to AHL I'm sure.

2 way contract.
No family ties to KH.
Veteran to support Dobes in the AHL and hopefully do the goddam playoffs finally.

It's an NHL contract, and at this point he's the 3rd string goalie (No point in bringing up Dobes). So if a goalie gets injured, He'll get a taste in the NHL. He's Canadian so it's very likely his dream to play in the NHL. Well worth taking a minor salary loss to achieve that dream.

Jealous that the Habs got him as my Avs were in need of exactly this type of netminder after losing Prosvetov/Holm back to Europe.

Nice pipeline in net and age progression for the Habs and pro tandems setup for next year

NHL: Montembeault (27) - Primeau (24)
AHL: Hughes (27) - Dobes (23)
NCAA: Fowler (19) - Croteau (20) (for sure a longshot but you never know)

This gets me very excited about him. Worked his way from the 2nd tier in Switzerland to the best goalie in the top league.

6’4”. .940% in 19 games and .933% in 18 playoff games in NL this season. Looks like he could be a solid add for the habs organization

this is so pathetic... a Leafs fan, immature Hab hater, just trying to spread his hate.

We love you kiddo.

Try not to hate that much; it gives cancer

It's always good to see someone get an ELC, especially when they are undrafted...

Why does this make me like the Habs pool even more? Too many likeable players

There's just too many likeable players tbh... Off the top of my head; Slaf, Evans, Dach, Newhook, Suzuki, RHP, Pezz, Guhele, Hutson, Xhekaj x2 with Reinbacher, Beck, Mesar and now Hughes in the pipeline...
