It's not that surprising, but as the 2022 National Hockey League draft approaches, there is starting to be some action in the NHL trade market.

Well, we just learned that the general manager of the Montreal Canadiens, Kent Hughes, would also be active on his phone.
According to what renowned journalist and insider Rick Dhaliwal of The Athletic is reporting, the Montreal Canadiens are currently in serious discussions with the Vancouver Canucks to complete a trade.
As reported by Marco Normandin, and according to Dhaliwal's sources, Montreal would target young goaltender Michael DiPietro here.
DiPietro, 23, has played 34 games in the AHL this season. He is more of a small goaltender (6 feet, 200 pounds) and has compiled a 15-13-4 record with a 2.95 goals-against average and .901 save percentage. (This season) In his career, he has played three games in the NHL.
Kent Hughes and Jeff Gorton are currently trying to acquire him.
Still according to Dhaliwal's sources, the price to pay would not be too high. We don't have all the details, but we know that he would be available on the trade market (the young goalie DiPietro).
Dhaliwal goes even further and says that Michael DiPietro will have been traded by July 7, possibly to the Habs (according to him).
It will be really interesting to watch and see what impact such an acquisition could have on the other goalies in the CH organization, especially on Samuel Montembeault, who is still without a contract for next season.
More details to come!
