New development emerges on a possible acquisition of Martin Necas

Published April 17, 2024 at 12:41

Is Martin Necas the new Kirby Dach for Kent Hughes and the Montreal Canadiens? Renaud Lavoie makes an intriguing statement.

As the Canadiens have concluded a third consecutive season without playoffs in Montreal, many hockey fans in Quebec would like Kent Hughes to step on the accelerator so that his team becomes competitive as soon as possible.

To do this, there is a good chance that the general manager of the CH will use the same strategy as in the last two years, namely to acquire via trade a young player capable of playing among the team's top six!

After Kirby Dach and Alex Newhook, now a player from the Carolina Hurricanes could be in Kent Hughes' sights during the offseason.

As reported by Habsolumentfan.com, Renaud Lavoie stated on TVA Sports that Martin Necas could very well be available because the Hurricanes will have many tough choices to make for the 2024-2025 season.

"Martin Necas is a restricted free agent at the end of the season. In the league, what is circulating is that he is a player who would like to find himself with another team.

Could he be the next player to join the Canadiens?"

This has been proposed by journalists and these are not far-fetched rumors because Don Waddell will have several contracts to renegotiate this summer and there is also the possibility that they could offer a contract to Jake Guentzel, acquired from the Pittsburgh Penguins at the trade deadline.

Will Kent Hughes be tempted to acquire Martin Necas this summer?

There is a history between these two teams as we very well remember the offer sheet made by Marc Bergevin in the summer of 2019 to Sebastian Aho, and two years later, Don Waddell returned the favor to his counterpart by also making an offer to a certain Jesperi Kotkaniemi.

Necas, 25 years old, is a 6-foot-2-inch and 189-pound center who can also excel on the wing.
