Georgetown native Lucas Condotta finally got to live out the dream of many young hockey players.

Condotta, 25, scored a goal on his first shot in his first game with the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday, April 13, the team’s final game of the year.

It was a fairytale start to Condotta’s NHL career after being undrafted but Montreal ended up losing the game to the Boston Bruins, 5-4.

Condotta managed five shots on goal as well as three hits in 11:02 of action.

The Halton Hills native spent four years at UMass-Lowell before signing with Montreal near the end of the 2021-22 season. He got seven games with Montreal’s minor league affiliate Laval last season.

This year, Condotta had 16 goals and 30 points in 71 AHL games before his one-game, emergency recall.
