This meant that Commissioner Gary Bettman had given his approval for Maillox to play in the NHL. It was a condition and the league confirmed, in a short emailed statement on Tuesday morning, that it had given its blessing to the Canadian defender.

“We have met with Logan Mylox several times over the past eight to 10 months. We see that he recognizes the seriousness of his past behavior and is serious in his desire to make better, more serious decisions in the future. He has the green light to play in the National League.

According to colleague Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports, Maillox had a discussion with NHL leaders about a month ago.

controversial

It must be remembered that the Canadian sparked controversy when he made the 31-year-old Mylox his first choiceH Overall in the 2021 draft.

You have to go back to the previous year to understand the situation. Mylox was then playing in the Swedish league. He distributed a very personal photo of a sexual partner to his teammates. He was charged and ordered to pay a fine.

For this reason, Maillox requested not to be drafted, but the Canadiens' management, led at the time by Marc Bergevin, ignored the request, causing severe protests.

Happy season

In his first professional season, Maillox performed very well for the Laval Rockets of the American Hockey League.

The 20-year-old Ontario native collected 47 points in 70 games. He ranks third in scoring among defenders in MLS, tied with Brad Hunt who is in second place because he has two other goals on his record. He is also fourth among all rookies in the AHL. It is the third indicator of the missile.

His play improved dramatically throughout the season and he was rewarded with an appearance in the AHL All-Star Game.

The Rockets are fighting for survival, but they will not play their next match until Friday evening. So it was a good time to offer a reward to Mailloux while he was being tested at the next level.
