Stu Cowan: Spotlight shines on Ryan Poehling at Canadiens' rookie camp When the locker room was opened to the media after the first practice of Canadiens’ rookie camp Thursday in Brossard, Ryan Poehling was already showered, dressed and standing in his stall waiting.

Ryan Poehling and Nick Suzuki, the Canadiens’ top two prospects, didn’t play Tuesday in the final game of rookie camp in Brossard.

Poehling and Suzuki, along with fellow forward Jake Evans and defenceman Cale Fleury, were all held out of the game, while Cayden Primeau filled the backup-goalie role behind Alexis Shank of the QMJHL’s Chicoutimi Saguenéens, who was invited to rookie camp on a tryout.

The Canadiens got two goals from Dylan Plouffe and Joe Cox, while Allan McShane, Alexandre Alain and Cameron Hillis added singles in a 7-3 win over the Quebec University All-Stars.

- Ryan Poehling : He's big and he can use that frame to protect the puck and he's quite the playmaker. While he showed us in his first NHL game last season that he could score goals, the player we saw this weekend was more intent on finding his teammates on the ice and setting them up to score.

After the game, the Canadiens announced that 57 players will take part in training camp, which starts Thursday in Brossard with physical and medical testing. The first on-ice session will be at 10 a.m. Friday.

“We have guys that will play a lot of hockey — let’s not kid ourselves — in the next few weeks,” Laval Rocket head coach Joël Bouchard, who ran the rookie camp, said when asked about the players who were scratched from Tuesday’s game. “We wanted to give some of the younger guys that are still junior age to have a chance to be in some opportunity. It was planned that way from the beginning, so there was no surprise. We want to give mileage and we want to get a chance to see everybody and today was the day. But don’t kid yourselves. The guys that didn’t play, this morning they went hard in practice because we really pushed them to make sure they’re ready for the Montreal camp.”

Poehling was selected by Montreal in the first round (25th overall) at the 2017 NHL Draft, but will be attending his first Canadiens training camp. The 6-foot-2, 204-pound centre played the last three seasons at St. Cloud State University and NCAA eligibility rules prohibit players from attending NHL rookie camps and training camps.

Poehling signed an NHL entry-level contract with the Canadiens at the end of March after St. Cloud State was upset in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The 20-year-old played his first NHL game in the Canadiens’ regular-season finale, scoring three goals and adding another in a shootout in a 6-5 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Bell Centre.

Can rookies Ryan Poehling and Nick Suzuki crack the Canadiens' lineup?

Can rookies Ryan Poehling and Nick Suzuki crack the Canadiens' lineup? Can Ryan Poehling and Nick Suzuki follow Jesperi Kotkaniemi’s path and make the NHL out of rookie camp? And how long will it take for defenceman Josh Brook and goaltender Cayden Primeau to be NHL ready? Those are the key questions as 27 prospects hit the ice Thursday for the start of the Canadiens’ rookie camp in Brossard. While the Canadiens have 23 players signed to one-way NHL contracts and two entry-level players (Kotkaniemi and Victor Mete) all but assured of spots with the big club, head coach Claude Julien said there could be room for some newcomers. “Every year, we say we want to see what these players do when they get to training camp,” Julien said last week.

“He’s a smart guy, he’s mature, he’s been in the big-stage games,” Bouchard said when asked what advice he had for Poehling entering his first NHL training camp. “Claude (Julien) and you have Kirk Muller, Dominique Ducharme behind the bench, that will help him. What we did with (Poehling) is just make sure that structure-wise, the next few days he knows where he’s headed at camp because Claude is demanding. He’s going to ask that the guys are sharp right away.

“There’s a lot of returning players, so we use the same structure as the Montreal Canadiens for him to be comfortable and understand and get his feet wet,” Bouchard added. “We can’t forget that he’s never been to a pro camp. Those NCAA players, they don’t come to rookie camp, they don’t come to NHL camp. So Suzuki (who played junior hockey) already has two rookie camps and two NHL camps vs. Poehling, that’s starting. So just to get his feet wet and keep going.”

Bouchard didn’t want to single out or analyze the performance of any of the players at rookie camp in front of the media, saying that was the job of general manager Marc Bergevin, assistant GM Trevor Timmins and their development team.

“I think everybody’s getting a great experience,” Bouchard said about the rookie camp. “Now, we’re going to see what’s next for them. But like I told them time and time again this weekend, this is just the beginning. They’re young hockey players that want to be pros. It’s going to be tough and there’s going to be time where they got to go back to their junior team and there’s going to be time where they need to go somewhere else and find their own game within the pro hockey. I think those are good eye-openers.

“There’s no university of hockey,” Bouchard added. “I’ve said it, I’ll repeat it again, there’s none. You cannot go sit on a bench and pretend you will learn hockey. You need to be out there in those kind of tournaments. So for all the guys that were on invites, some of them did really good, some of them maybe didn’t do as well as they would hope. But it’s still good mileage. There’s nothing wrong with failing. We want everybody to succeed. In life you have to fail to succeed. So I thought they did well because they tried their best and we’ll see what they do after. Like I told the guys, what we like as hockey guys is to see players that find solutions when the stakes get a little higher, when the pressure gets a little higher, when the caliber gets a little higher. You’re right, some of them showed more than others but, hey, that’s the jungle of hockey.”
