MONTREAL - Here's a quick look at how a few of the Canadiens' prospects performed during the last week.

Cam Hillis

The Ontario Hockey League (OHL)'s Guelph Storm forward leads his team in a whole bunch of statistical categories. First off, Hillis is killing it in the faceoff dot, having won 56.3% of his draws so far.

The 19-year-old is also leading the 2018-19 OHL champions with a plus-11 differential.

The Habs' third-round pick (66th overall) in 2018 picked up seven points in his last three games, largely thanks to a one-goal, three-assist performance on October 25 in a 9-3 win over the North Bay Battalion.

The Storm captain has five goals for 17 points in 13 games this season.

Samuel Houde

The Chicoutimi Sagueneens forward is enjoying the best start of his career in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL).

The Habs hopeful has been held off the scoresheet just once in 15 games in 2019-20. Houde is currently riding a 13-game points streak.

Tweet from @SagueneensLHJMQ: Hey @CanadiensMTL 👋4 points pour Harvey-Pinard et 3 pour Houde aujourd'hui! Sans oublier ce magnifique but!������On s'est dit que vous seriez probablement content de le savoir... 😉#FierDetreSags

Montreal's fifth-round pick (133rd overall) in 2018 has scored two or more points in eight games this season. He's leading Yanick Jean's squad with 10 goals, 13 assists, and 23 points in 15 games.

Houde is just six goals away from matching his career high of 16 goals, set two seasons ago.

Rafaël Harvey-Pinard

The Sagueneens captain seems to have also found his mojo. The 5-foot-9, 173-pound forward has picked up at least a point in his club's last four games.

Harvey-Pinard has three goals and six assists during the stretch.

Tweet from @SagueneensLHJMQ: ET LE BUUUT!!!🚨🚨🚨Le capitaine en rajoute! Rafael HARVEY-PINAAAARD! Le #11 marque d'un tir sur r��ception foudroyant en avantage num��rique et donne une priorit�� de cinq buts aux #Sags! C'est 6-1 #Sags! #FierDetreSags

The Canadiens' seventh-round pick (201st overall) in 2019 has four goals and 16 points in 15 games so far this season.
