We are so excited! Let's obviously recall that the Canadiens officially hold:

- 8.5% chance of winning the 1st overall pick and Macklin Celebrini

- 17% chance of a top-2 pick (8.6% chance of winning the 2nd overall pick)

- 0.3% chance of winning the 3rd overall pick

- 24.5% chance of getting the 5th overall pick

- 44% chance of getting the 6th overall pick

- And finally, a 14.2% chance of getting the 7th overall pick

Celebrini had a historic season in the NCAA, with a tally of 32 goals and 32 assists (64 points) in just 38 games.

Among the names to watch are forwards Ivan Demidov, Cayden Lindstrom, Tij Iginla, Berkly Catton, and Cole Eiserman, and on defense, there are Artyom Levshunov and Zayne Parekh.

It's promising! Go Habs Go!

This could literally change EVERYTHING for Kent Hughes and the Habs with a favorable outcome. Details will follow.
