It was once believed that Logan Mailloux would get a chance in the NHL but new reports show that nothing is set quite yet.

Mailloux's Future Remains Uncertain



Just under a week ago, journalist Renaud Lavoie reported that Logan Mailloux would be getting cleared to play in the NHL.




Hearing from multiple sources that Logan Mailloux received the green light from the NHL to play for the @CanadiensMTL when his time will come. So this is the end of all speculations regarding his future.

However, a recent report from Jonathan Bernier of the Journal de Montreal has refuted Lavoies reports saying that there is no official word yet from Gary Bettman and the NHL.

"The Canadiens have not yet received official confirmation from the NHL regarding the absolution that Gary Bettman offered to Logan Mailloux to allow him to play in the NHL." - Jonathan Bernier

Mailloux's NHL eligibility is currently still up in the air. He was originally drafted in the 1st round of the 2021 NHL draft after asking every NHL team not to select him.



However, Renaud Lavoie tweeted recently that Mailloux has been given the green light to play in the big league →

We will now await Gary Bettman's official verdict and an announcement.
