Nick Suzuki is ready to be a captain according to Matthew Perrault

Mathieu Perrault believes that even if he is still very young, striker Nick Suzuki should be the next captain of the Montreal Canadiens.

The 34-year-old Quebec, who announced his retirement in the past few days, had a friction with Ontario in the locker room last season. He was soon charmed by the 23-year-old’s personality.

In a Friday morning interview with Jean-Claude Lagoy on BBM Sports, Perrault indicated that Suzuki is ready to accept more responsibilities.

“You can give Nick the letter C,” he said, “he’s willing to wear.” It can be supervised by Joel [Edmundson] At the same time. I think it would be a great transition, to give it to him now, so he can follow in some men’s footsteps in the locker room. Personally, I liked Nick and thought he would be ready for that.”

The midfielder led the Canadians with 61 points in 82 games in 2021-2022. He has three seasons behind a tie, having collected 143 points in 209 games with confinement.

Remember that the title of captain is vacant in Montreal. Shea Webber, who had the “C” logo on his shirt from 2018 to 2022, was out last season due to injury and has since moved to the Vegas Golden Knights.
