Now that the NHL's famous trade deadline is officially behind us, we can focus more on the next big date to circle on the calendar for Montreal Canadiens fans: the 2024 draft!

And in this regard, we must revisit a very interesting report by the excellent journalist Nicolas Cloutier, from TVA Sports, concerning the young Cayden Lindstrom.

He is THE player that many CH fans hope to see land in Montreal (aside from Macklin Celebrini, of course).

Cayden Lindstrom: an obvious target for Kent Hughes and the CH at the 2024 draft!




And the excitement is only growing.

«Excellent text by Nicolas Cloutier about the prospect Cayden Lindstrom. THE player I would target if I were the CH (apart from Macklin Celebrini, obviously). I leave you with this little quote...» - Marc-Olivier Beaudoin


Indeed, reading this text gives hope and the impression that he could be an NHL star player.

«I compare him to Eric Lindros.»

«He probably has the highest potential of the draft.»

Cayden Lindstrom tantalizes hockey men.

And he will become a serious candidate for the Canadiens if they continue to lose.

And the young man has indeed already done his homework (as have the CH):

«I spoke a little to the Canadiens' scouts,» mentions Lindstrom. «It was good. They are good people. I know you have some pretty crazy fans in Montreal. I like that, and the organization has a rich history. The market doesn't intimidate me.» - Cayden Lindstrom

We're talking about an extraordinary athlete, who has the physical form of an NFL star wide receiver and who is nicknamed «the Western Beef» by some.

The Montreal Canadiens are already interested in him, and rest assured that you will hear a lot about him by June.

Will he still be available at the Habs' 5-6-7th overall pick? That's the question, but if he is, don't be surprised if Kent Hughes runs up to the podium to call his name.

Cayden Lindstrom, 18 years old, is a 6 feet 3 inches and 215 pounds center who has an incredible 46 points (27 goals) in 32 games, this season, in the WHL. (66 minutes of penalty)

A text that we highly recommend:
