Acquisition by the Canadiens: Kent Hughes may Have Made a Big Move and Pulled Off a Steal by Adding the Young Defenseman Adam Engstrom
BY ELLIOT BEN JACOB AUGUST 31, 2023 (8:28 PM)
Kent Hughes and his team drafted the young left-handed Swedish defenseman Adam Engstrom.
Let's add him to the list of Kaiden Guhle, Jordan Harris, Arber Xhekaj, David Reinbacher, Logan Mailloux, Lane Hutson, and Justin Barron. The future looks bright on the blue line for our Habs.
Engstrom really impressed last July during the Montreal Canadiens' development camp, being a machine at creating scoring opportunities, and it continued.
He was probably the second-best defenseman in this camp, obviously behind Lane Hutson.
The comments are very complimentary:
He is likely to go back and dominate in Sweden this season before possibly trying to make the Montreal Canadiens' roster in 2024-25.
Engstrom, 19 years old, stands 6 feet tall and has amassed a solid 16 points in 43 games in the top league of Sweden, one of the best leagues in the world. For an 18-year-old defenseman (at the start of the 2022-23 season), that's very strong.
A name to watch!
