Canadiens' Jake Allen, right, chats with fellow netminder Sam Montembeault, during a practice at the Bell Sports Complex in Brossard on Jan. 10, 2022.

Cayden Primeau can vouch for that.

The last couple of seasons have been difficult for the 22-year-old Primeau. Last season, he was limited to 16 games with the Laval Rocket because the AHL season was cut short due to COVID-19, posting an 11-4 record with a 2.10 goals-against average and a .909 save percentage. He also played four games with the Canadiens, going 1-2-1 with a 4.16 GAA and a .849 save percentage.

This season, Primeau played 33 games with the Rocket and was 16-12-3 with a 2.94 GAA and a .909 save percentage. He really struggled during 12 games with the Canadiens, going 1-7-1 with a 4.62 GAA and a .868 save percentage.

During Primeau’s time in Montreal, Allen pulled him aside to have a couple of goalie-to-goalie chats.
