The 23-year-old forward is having a great season with the Laval Rocket of the American Hockey League. In 64 games, he hit the target 19 times and provided 32 assists for 51 points. He is also the best scorer for the Sainte-Flanelle school club so far in 2021-2022.
Harvey-Pinard has three games of experience in the National League, having had a short stay with the Canadiens between the end of December and the beginning of January. In his first career game in the big league, December 28 against the Tampa Bay Lightning, he scored his first goal in the Bettman circuit.
The Canadiens will return to action on Thursday night, when the Philadelphia Flyers will be at the Bell Centre.
