For hockey fans, it's always intriguing and enjoyable to revisit certain NHL draft years. Obviously, some drafts are much more prolific than others. The 2019 NHL draft is one that's quite interesting to revisit.

Even though it's only four years ago, one can see that several young players have already become established stars in the NHL, and an internet user has taken a keen interest in this draft class.

On their Twitter account, user JFresh collected a total of 89,565 votes in a head-to-head format to redo the 2019 draft, and let's just say it's promising news for Canadiens fans.

Among the top 10 players, three Canadiens players made the cut: Cole Caufield in third place, Kirby Dach in eighth, and the newly acquired Alex Newhook at number 10.


But at the 25th spot, there's the presence of a certain Rafaël Harvey-Pinard, the Canadiens' revelation in the 2022-2023 season.

So, he would be a first-round pick! Wow!


Indeed, quite impressive for a player chosen in the seventh round!

Well, it's important not to get carried away with this ranking proposed by an internet user, as we never know what the future holds. Nevertheless, it's still worth noting that the Canadiens are well-represented on this list, which bodes very well for the future.
