September 2023 – Trudeau was the best player for the Canadiens at their prospect tournament this year. After a very successful season in Laval, on a second pair with Nicolas Beaudin, Trudeau has emerged as a possible NHL candidate very soon. His high-end defensive play often goes unnoticed, which is the best possible thing that can be said for a 20-year-old in the AHL. He will be elevated along with Beaudin to the first pair in Laval this season, and, injuries allowing, could see an NHL debut at the young age of 21. The Canadiens may have hit a slam dunk in 2021. Aaron Itovitch

July 2021 – Trudeau had a breakout season in the QMJHL with 31 points in 40 games, which tied him for 8th in the league in defence scoring. Trudeau was drafted in the fourth round at 113 overall by the Montreal Canadiens. Pablo Ruiz
