A defensively responsible forward with strong and gritty puck handling skills that only enhance his ability of driving the play to the net.

May 2022 – Teasdale has been plagued with injuries ever since signing his first professional contract. He only played in 44 games with the Rocket this season, but he played his role very well. While the missed time has certainly hampered his development and limited his ceiling as a player, Teasdale, when healthy, is immensely valuable to the Rocket. His high-end work ethic, physicality, and nose for the net make him a seamless fit for a checking role, which is likely where he’d slot in if he eventually makes the NHL. His coaches will never be disappointed with him, as he doesn’t cut corners in his play. However, the offensive vision, understanding and processing of multiple-scenario offensive situations, and dynamism don’t project to reach the level necessary to fit into an NHL top-6. He is more likely to move up to a third line to plug a hole than to be a fixture on one, but a fourth-line role as a fan-favourite is a reasonable projection for the Repentigny native. Sebastian High
July 2021 – After missing the entirety of the 2019-2020 season, Teasdale bounced back and had a successful first-year pro in the AHL. He has 18 points in 26 games and was briefly called up to Montreal’s taxi squad but saw no action. Teasdale is likely to start next season in the AHL, but don’t be surprised if his two-way ability earns him a call-up during the season when injuries occur. Pablo Ruiz
March 2020 – Teasdale tore both his ACL and MCL in an on-ice practice session back in August. He has missed the whole season. Pablo Ruiz
May 2019 – Teasdale continues to elevate his game and captures MVP honors as he led his
team, the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies, to beat the Halifax Mooseheads in the Memorial Cup. The Huskies acquired him in early January where his point-per-game average increased by 0.45. This offensive momentum continued steadily in the QMJHL playoffs where Teasdale finished first in scoring with 14 goals and 34 points in 20 games. Teasdale made a splash as an invitee to the Canadiens’ training camp last fall which earned him an entry level contract. Expect him to join the AHL’s Laval Rocket after camp again in September. With improved skating and added size, a top-six role is a definite possibility down the road for the young skater. Jesse Sherman
