Here is an unexpected development for the 4th overall pick of the Columbus Blue Jackets, the pick right before Kent Hughes and the Montreal Canadiens.

According to some observers, none other than Tij Iginla could be picked 4th overall!
This would be quite a dramatic twist, considering his ranking a few weeks ago and even his current ranking (9th-10th overall), but it's a possibility that is gaining a lot of traction.

Tij Iginla drafted ahead of the Montreal Canadiens, by the Columbus Blue Jackets at 4th overall?

Will Trevor Timmins and his colleagues pull off this move? We are really eager to see, but be aware that expert Corey Pronman believes that some teams see Iginla as a potential 4th overall pick in the 2024 draft.
«Corey Pronman states in his Athletic Hockey podcast that depending on who you talk to in the league, there are teams that think Tij Iginla is in consideration for the 4th overall pick in the draft.» - The Columbus Blue Jackets Center

And Pronman indeed adds that the Columbus Blue Jackets are among the teams that might consider Iginla (as well as the Montreal Canadiens, by the way).
This will be a fascinating story to follow.
Iginla, 17, has accumulated 84 points, including a solid 47 goals, in 64 games this season in the WHL. He added 15 points in 11 playoff games, including nine goals.
