Observations

February 2018 – The Canadiens have recalled Noah Juulsen from Laval in wake of Shea Weber being shut down for the season and Jakub Jerabek being traded to the Washington Capitals over the last few games. Juulsen has rebounded nicely from an early-season injury, but he isn’t a big offensive producer so don’t expect many returns just yet. With the aforementioned news and Montreal jockeying for prime draft position, Juulsen’s recall was no surprise. Management will take a closer look at a prime candidate to occupy a regular spot on defense in 2018-19 as this season winds down. Mike Barrett

October 2016 – Noah Juulsen was named captain of the Everett Silvertips in what will likely be his final junior season. The two-way defenseman will look to bring his scoring back to the level it was in his draft year, while combining the work-ethic and leadership he developed a season ago. Juulsen looks primed for a big season, and should be among the top defenseman in the WHL. The Canadiens will be watching closely, as will Team Canada reps as the WJC’s inch closer and closer. Mike Barrett

June 2015 – The Montreal Canadiens selected smart defenseman Noah Juulsen with the 26th overall pick of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. Brendan Ross

 

June 2015 – One of the draft’s potential quiet star defensemen, Noah Juulsen is a highly intelligent, low-maintenance and efficient defender capable of playing a strong two-way game. First and foremost, Juulsen is an extremely mobile blue liner who executes precise outlet passes and shows a good ability to keep plays alive at the offensive line. Despite not being an ideal sized defender, Juulsen chips in on the physical end and makes some dazzling open ice hits. He’s very poised in possession and his calming demeanour radiates throughout the lineup. Overall, Juulsen’s competitive and hard-working approach will make him a potential opening round selection. Brendan Ross
