verdict possible acquisition Vitali Kravtsov Montreal Canadiens

THE VERDICT IS IN ON THE POSSIBLE ACQUISITION OF VITALI KRAVTSOV BY THE MONTREAL CANADIENS

JUN 22, 2022  (9H39)      MARCO
Since the hiring of Jeff Gorton by the Montreal Canadiens, and especially since the trade deadline, the name of Vitali Kravtsov has been frequently linked to the Montreal Canadiens.

We're talking about a forward drafted 9th overall in 2018, by the New York Rangers and by Jeff Gorton.

He also fits what Kent Hughes is looking for when he talks about acquiring promising youngsters who are "further along in their development" than a draft pick.

Kravtsov, 22, has 13 points (6 goals) in 19 KHL games this season and 10 points (7 goals) in his team's most recent playoffs.

He has 4 points and 2 goals in 20 career NHL games.

Several experts and observers have mentioned in recent weeks that Hughes and Gorton have been inquiring about acquiring him.

Finally, the verdict is in.

According to NHL Collection network sources, "Vitali Kravstov and GM Chris Drury (of the Rangers) had a good discussion and finally, Kravtsov will play in New York next season.

The trade rumors started at the beginning of this season, when the young forward was sent to the AHL, but refused to join the Rangers' club-school. As a result, he headed to the KHL and his relationship with the team that drafted him soured.

In the end, everything seems to be settled and Kravtsov will play in New York next season.
