Jonathan Ferland could become a 4th line agitator, but is in danger of
quickly dropping on the depth chart because of the surplus of quality
prospect forwards in the Habs’ organization.
Ferland saw his first NHL action last season with the Montreal Canadiens
where he played 7 games and scored his first NHL goal. He has 4 goals, 1
assist, and 38PIM in 17 games with the Hamilton Bulldogs this season.
