July 2022 – The Montreal Canadiens have selected Guindon in the fourth round of the 2022 NHL Draft. Nick Richard

June 2022 – Guindon had a good season for Owen Sound, tying for the team lead with 30 goals and finishing second in scoring on the club with 59 points in 68 games. He is a crafty forward who creates deception on his shots with a quality release and some decent goal-scoring instincts. Guindon sees the ice well and utilizes changes of pace and quick shifts to find open space, both in transition and when his team has possession in the offensive zone. He uses his teammates efficiently to spread out opposing defenses and sustain offensive zone possessions but he isn’t the most creative playmaker. Despite his small stature, he competes well off the puck – providing pressure on the forecheck to force turnovers and supporting play intelligently in the defensive zone. He will have to continue to add strength and to have his game translate to the pros but he has enough hockey sense to make it as a two-way forward who can chip in on the scoreboard. Nick Richard
