This week in Buffalo, the annual NHL "Combine" took place, where Kent Hughes and Jeff Gorton met with prospects in anticipation of the draft.

During this event, 100 prospects ahead of the upcoming draft will try to impress the management of the 32 NHL teams through physical tests and individual meetings. However, one of these young hockey players started his campaign to impress the Montreal Canadiens on the wrong foot.

Winger Konsta Helenius ignored the Montreal Canadiens, but he made amends before the draft

As reported by Anthony Martineau, the young Konsta Helenius, who could very well be a top-10 pick at the end of the month, inadvertently ignored the Canadiens. He simply forgot to fill out the questionnaire that the organization had sent him during the season.
Fortunately for him, the Canadiens were still willing to meet with him despite his oversight. It seems the organization didn't take his mistake too badly. Even better, according to Helenius himself, the club's management seemed to like him quite a bit.
«The Canadiens sent a questionnaire to Konsta Helenius this season.

The young man just told me, laughing out loud, that he forgot to respond to it.

He met with the Canadiens recently in Buffalo.

‘Honestly, I think they like me!'» - Anthony Martineau

As my colleague Nicolas Desrosiers reports, it would be surprising if Kent Hughes used his 5th overall pick on Helenius. However, he could consider the young Finnish forward if he managed to acquire another pick in the top 12.
Helenius is a 5-foot-11, 181-pound forward. He performed very well this season in the Liiga, Finland's top professional league, amassing 36 points, including 14 goals, in 51 games.
