It's rare that we get news of this kind, but with the surplus of defensemen and limited spots, it was foreseeable.

An unhappy young defender of the Canadiens asks for a trade?

See what the very reliable Anthony Marcotte just published about Nicolas Beaudin, a defender in the Montreal Canadiens organization.
«Nicolas Beaudin would like to have a chance to play more, whether it's in Laval or elsewhere. He has entrusted the matter to his agent. For now, the Rocket prefer to use Mailloux, Xhekaj, and Trudeau in offensive roles. Story developing.» - Anthony Marcotte

So, don't be surprised if Kent Hughes announces his trade in the coming days.
He wants to play, and that's understandable.
Beaudin, 24, is a first-round pick (27th overall) of the Chicago Blackhawks in 2018. He has accumulated 6 points in 22 career NHL games, and 6 points in 13 games with the Laval Rocket this season. (25 in 39 last season)
He does not explicitly say he's requesting a trade, but they are not playing him currently, and his message sounds like «play me or trade me», at least from what we understand.
Case to follow!
With the arrival of a player like Arber Xhekaj in Laval, it's certain that other defensemen were going to suffer and play less.
