The Montreal Canadiens will officially add Lane Hutson to their lineup, but that's not all.

Not only has the news we were all waiting for finally dropped, but we also learn that Hutson could be in uniform as soon as next Monday! Wow!

There is the confirmation we were all waiting for.

The Canadiens have agreed to terms on a three-year, entry-level contract (2023-24 to 2025-26) with defenseman Lane Hutson.

It's rare to see a reporter scoop such news before the official announcement from the organization regarding the signing of a prospect, but it shows just how huge the excitement around Hutson is.

Another young player for Martin St-Louis

So, indeed, another young talent is set to join the Montreal Canadiens' lineup, and another young talent that will give hope to the fans.

This will certainly spice things up at the end of the season, and it's not unlike the arrival of Cole Caufield a few years ago.

Hutson, 20 years old, the 62nd overall pick in 2022 (second round), has amassed 49 points in 38 games this season at Boston University, including 15 goals.

Last season, he had amassed 48 points in 39 games at Boston University, including 15 goals.

Lane Hutson easily surpasses Cale Makar's stats from their respective NCAA rookie seasons!
