MONTREAL - Here's a quick look at the progress a few Canadiens prospects are making with their respective clubs so far this season.

Joel Teasdale

The Blainville-Boisbriand Armada forward is enjoying a solid run with four goals and five points in just two games.

Teasdale scored a natural hat trick and picked up an assist in his most recent game before the holiday break against the Sherbrooke Phoenix.

The Repentigny native kept the good times rolling in his first game back after Christmas by scoring this impressive shorthanded goal.

Teasdale has four shorthanded goals so far this season, which is a personal best and which also ranks him second in the QMJHL.

The forward has also scored five power play goals and leads his team with 19 goals and 19 assists for a total of 37 points in 34 games.

Teasdale was never drafted to the NHL. He signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Canadiens on September 21.

Cole Fonstad

The forward playing for the best Junior team in Canada currently continues to get his name all over the scoresheet.

Fonstad collected three points in each of his first two games back from the holiday break.

The centerman is currently riding a five-game points streak, totalling 13 points (2G, 11A) during the span.

The Estvan, SK native has scored three game-winners so far this season, one shy from his career high.

The Canadiens' fifth-round pick (128th overall) in 2018 has a plus-16 differential and currently sits third on his team with 36 points (12G, 24A) in 36 games.

Allan McShane

The centerman enjoyed a two-goal outing in his first game back from the holidays. The Collingwood, ON native scored a magnificent goal by stealing the puck from a Mississauga Steelheads defender and completed the play with a slick move to get the puck in the net.
