The General Manager of the Montreal Canadiens, Kent Hughes, has already announced his intentions regarding his 5th overall pick.

In a press conference immediately after the NHL lottery, where he received the 5th overall pick, Hughes announced that they are likely to draft a forward. Wow!

Kent Hughes announces that the plan is to draft a forward!



Do you like Kent Hughes' transparency? Do you believe it could harm him to reveal his plans like this?


"Kent Hughes mentions that the plan for now is to draft a forward with the 5th overall pick." - Marc-Olivier Beaudoin

"GM Kent Hughes: 'listen, I think what I said [in the past] is that, all things being equal, we draft a forward, and I think that remains the case...'

It will certainly be interesting to watch, but it's clear that the names Cayden Lindstrom, Berkly Catton, Tij Iginla, and possibly also Ivan Demidov and Cole Eiserman will be on everyone's lips in Montreal in the coming weeks.

It's known that Kent Hughes has a liking for Demidov, but it will take a little miracle to get him. The answer in June!

Demidov has amassed 23 goals and 37 assists (60 points) in only 30 games in his native country, while Nikita Kucherov had recorded 58, but in 41 games.

Case to follow!
