The brother of a top Calgary Flames executive wouldn't be surprised to see Jakob Pelletier traded to Montreal

A few days ago, we reported that Calgary Flames prospect Jakob Pelletier would be of interest to the Habs right now.


When he heard the news, the main interested party was even convinced that he was part of the transaction that sent Tyler Toffoli to Calgary last month.

Pelletier is still a member of the Flames organization, but his name is becoming more and more associated with the Canadiens. As mentioned by Charles-Alexis Brisebois of Danslescoulisses.com, it was discussed on the Sick Podcast hosted by TSN 690 tipster Tony Marinaro.


The latter had Craig Button, who is very knowledgeable about NHL prospects, as a guest, and he said he wouldn't be surprised if Pelletier was traded to Montreal by March 21. However, now that Ben Chiarot is gone, it would be more like a Christian Dvorak (+ a pick) or an Artturi Lehkonen.

Button said that the Flames are serious Stanley Cup contenders and that GM Brad Treliving will likely want to add to his team. Please note here that Craig Button is the brother of Tod Button, the Calgary Flames' Director of Recruiting.

Well, well, well!

He also compared the Flames prospect to Jake Guentzel of the Pittsburgh Penguins and said that he could eventually play on the second line in the NHL.

It must be said that this season in the AHL, Pelletier is having quite a season with the Stockton Heat, where he is averaging one point per game with 48 points in as many games.

Would you like to see Jakob Pelletier arrive in Montreal at the trade deadline?
