2020 Fantasy Outlook
Primeau appears to be the Canadiens' goalie of the future, but for now, the 21-year-old is likely set to battle Charlie Lindgren for the taxi squad job in 2020-21. Primeau was solid in 33 games for AHL Laval last year, as he had a 17-11-3 record with a 2.45 GAA and a .908 save percentage. More than likely, Primeau will spend the upcoming season in the minors, as the organization will want him to get playing time. He's not expected to make a fantasy impact yet, and with Jake Allen under contract through the 2022-23 season, any dynasty managers rostering Primeau will have to wait quite some time for a return on investment.

Rises to top level

May 18, 2021
Primeau was recalled from AHL Laval to the Canadiens' active roster Tuesday as a Black Ace for the playoffs ahead of Game 1 against the Maple Leafs.
ANALYSIS
Primeau and eight other Rocket teammates were brought up as emergency postseason depth. As it stands, Primeau is the No. 5 netminder on the Habs' depth chart behind Carey Price, Jake Allen, Charlie Lindgren and Michael McNiven, so there's next to no chance he'll dress with the big club before next season.
