Among the many players involved, there's Rem Pitlick, who left the Habs to join the ranks of the Pittsburgh Penguins.
It's no coincidence that he was involved in the trade, and honestly, hats off to Kent Hughes.
Journalist Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports has just dropped some important information that explains everything.
He has just revealed that Rem Pitlick had recently requested a trade from Kent Hughes.
The Canadiens' General Manager therefore fulfilled his wish, accommodated him, and allowed him to get a fresh new opportunity elsewhere.
We wish him the best of luck in Pittsburgh.
Pitlick, 26, has amassed:
- 22 points in 18 games with the Laval Rocket last season
- 15 points in 46 games with the Montreal Canadiens last season
- 26 points in 46 games with the Montreal Canadiens in 2022
He is signed through 2024 and earns $1.1 million per season.
