Caufield and the Badgers lost to Bemidji State in the first round of the 2021 NCAA Men’s Hockey Tournament. Caufield then left Wisconsin and joined the Montreal Canadiens, the team that drafted him in the first round in 2019 with the 15th overall pick.

"That was a great experience getting my first taste in the NHL, something I want to build on this (next) season. I wish we could’ve gone further in the NCAA Tournament, however, I was happy to get to Montreal and I’m anxious to see where my professional career will take me," Caufield added.

In just 10 games with the Canadiens, Caufield scored four goals.
