Suzuki has 13 goals, 28 assists and is minus-15 while averaging 15:59 of ice time per game over 71 games in 2019-20.
Suzuki, who hasn't missed a game, showed the typical signs of rookie fatigue prior to the NHL suspending the season, posting just one point over the final nine contests. He currently ranks sixth in rookie scoring. Immediately prior to the scoring drop, Suzuki won the team's player of the month award for February, when the 20-year-old forward led the Habs in power-play goals and points (two and five), tied for second in points (10), tied for third in goals (four) and shots (35), and ranked fourth in assists (six). He received ample time on the power play (2:10 per game) and is tied with Tomas Tatar on the team with 14 power-play points. Suzuki impressed head coach Claude Julien with his hockey IQ, and he'll return in a top-six role and as a member of the power-play unit in 2020-21.
Suzuki had an assist, three shots on net and two hits in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Predators.
The assist snapped Suzuki's eight-game pointless streak, the longest such stretch of futility for the 20-year-old. With it being March, talk of the rookie hitting the wall has started. "Last year was a big year for him," head coach Claude Julien told Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette. "World juniors, the Memorial Cup, everything. So a lot of extra games that he's played. Finished in May. By the end of June, he's back on the ice here in development camp, rookie camp. Big season, first season, so eventually those things catch up. That, to me, is just a normal thing." Suzuki is one of four Canadiens to play every game this season.
Suzuki had three shots on net in Thursday's 4-0 loss to the Lightning.
Suzuki has gone seven consecutive games without a point, easily his longest stretch of futility during his rookie season. It may be cliche, but hockey coaches often talk about rookies hitting a wall during the second half of a season, and that may be happening here. The 20-year-old Suzuki is in uncharted territory in terms of games played. Thursday's game was his 69th, surpassing his previous high of 65.
Suzuki picked up a pair of power-play points Tuesday, scoring a goal and tallying an assist in a 4-3 loss to Detroit.
The rookie now has 40 points in 62 games, making Suzuki one of the most prized youngsters in fantasy this season. The 20-year-old was also useful in the faceoff circle, finishing the game at 55 percent. Playing mostly in a top-six role for the Canadiens, Suzuki's fantasy value is as high as it's been all season. Thursday in Washington, he'll look to push his point streak to five games.
Suzuki had a power-play assist and two shots on net in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Penguins.
For the second straight game, Suzuki had a hand in Montreal's lone goal. He scored in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to Boston and assisted on Tomas Tatar's power-play goal against the Pens. The Canadiens' offense has gone to sleep over the last five games, scoring just nine goals during that stretch, but Suzuki has participated in four of the scores. The rookie is tied for third on the team with 37 points and second in power-play points with 17.
Suzuki scored a goal in Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Bruins.
Suzuki was part of the traffic in front of Boston goalie Tuukka Rask and changed the direction of Marco Scandella's shot with his hip. The rookie has shown great promise and hockey IQ during his inaugural season while centering Montreal's second line and occupying a spot on the power play. It was his 12th goal of the season and his ninth point in the last nine games. The 20-year-old center is third in scoring among NHL rookies with 36 points.
Suzuki had an assist, one shot, four hits and two blocked shots in Saturday's 2-1 overtime win over the Maple Leafs.
Suzuki's overtime bid rebounded to Ilya Kovalchuk, who buried his second OT winner. The 20-year-old rookie has been smoking since Montreal returned from its bye week, registering eight points (two goals, seven assists) in seven games. He's fourth on the team in assists (24) and tied for fifth in points (35).
Suzuki scored a power-play goal in Thursday's 3-2 overtime win over the Ducks. He added two shots and a hit over 16:00 of ice time.
Suzuki potted his fifth power-play goal late in the first period, giving him seven points over the last six games. He is second on the team with 11 of his 34 points coming on the power play. The 20-year-old forward, who was sheltered by coach Claude Julien early in the season, has averaged 17:38 of ice time since the beginning of January. There may be reckoning later in the season for the rookie, but for now, Suzuki will be a top-six forward getting ample TOI.
Suzuki generated an assist, two shots on goal and two hits in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Blue Jackets.
Suzuki helped out on Tomas Tatar's second-period tally. The 20-year-old Suzuki is having an excellent rookie campaign, with 33 points, 95 shots, 44 hits and a minus-4 rating in 54 games. That puts him pretty close to a 50-point pace -- the center appears to be living up to his first-round (2017) draft-pick pedigree.
Suzuki scored an even-strength goal and a power-play assist in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Panthers.
His first-period goal ended up being the game-winner as Carey Price locked things down in the Habs' crease. Suzuki is heating up, scoring five points (one goal, four helpers) in the last three games, and on the season the rookie has 10 goals and 32 points through 53 contests.
Suzuki had two assists, three shots and two blocked shots in Thursday's 3-1 win over Buffalo.
The 20-year-old Suzuki registered his 20th and 21st assists, helping his more senior teammates. His first was a bang-bang play in front of the net that set up the 37-year-old Ilya Kovalchuk, then later he passed up a potential empty-netter, instead deferring to the 29-year-old Tomas Tatar who iced the game. To accommodate the return of Brendan Gallagher from a concussion, head coach Claude Julien tweaked his lines. In a sign of the coach's confidence in the rookie, Suzuki (17:50 TOI) remained at second-line center while Max Domi (15:53) was dropped to the third line.
Suzuki scored a power-play goal on one shot and added two hits in Saturday's 2-1 overtime win over the Senators.
Suzuki gave Montreal a first-period lead when he scored his fourth power-play goal, the team's first in its last 20 opportunities. He ranks third on the Canadiens with nine power-play points. There's always the possibility that Suzuki hits a wall over the final quarter of the season, but he's rewarded head coach Claude Julien, who decided to roll with the 20-year-old forward out of training camp and has stuck with him as a top-six forward. Suzuki ranks fourth among NHL rookies with 27 points.
Suzuki scored a power-play goal on two shots and had an assist along with one hit in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Red Wings.
Suzuki scored his third power-play goal of the season and found the back of the net for just the second time in the last 21 games. There have been some rookie mistakes along the way, but head coach Claude Julien is putting up with those and giving Suzuki ample playing time. The 20-year-old forward is averaging nearly 19 minutes of ice time since the Habs returned from their holiday break, and Suzuki continues to hold down a spot on the power play.

Suzuki was given ice time on both special-team units and has played more than 20 minutes in each of the last three games. The 20-year-old forward has just one goal over the last 20 games, but during that same stretch, Suzuki has assisted on 13 goals.
Suzuki blocked two shots and had a forward-high 20:26 of ice time in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Hurricanes.
Suzuki, whose five-game point streak was snapped in the loss, had to take some extra shifts after Brendan Gallagher left the game with an upper-body injury. The 20-year-old forward has earned the confidence of head coach Claude Julien. Suzuki is averaging 15:05 of ice time for the season, but the coach has doled out an average of 17:50 to the rookie over the last six games. Pending how Julien wants to cover for Gallagher, Suzuki could continue to receive elevated ice time.
Suzuki had three assists and one shot with a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 6-5 loss to the Panthers.
Suzuki is now riding a career-best five-game point streak, having amassed one goal and seven assists during that stretch. The 20-year-old was in on each of Montreal's first three goals Sunday, helping the Canadiens erase an early 2-0 deficit.

Suzuki lined up at center on the third line and had an assist in Friday's 2-1 win over the Rangers.
Suzuki was moved from second-line wing to third-line center as the replacement for the injured Jesperi Kotkaniemi (concussion). The Canadiens see Suzuki as a center long term, but the rookie has experienced growing pains in the faceoff circle. He was good Friday, winning five of eight draws while assisting on Nate Thompson's game-winning goal with 1:07 to play. The offensively gifted Suzuki hasn't scored a goal in eight games but has five assists during that span.
