Acquisition announced by the Montreal Canadiens in the next few minutes? Kent Hughes is the one to watch in the Lassi Thomson case

As we reported to you over the past few hours, we had a surprise at the NHL waiver wire yesterday, as the Ottawa Senators made their 2019 1st round pick Lassi Thomson available.

Let's recall that the Sens are strangled by the salary cap. They had no choice.

Thomson, the 19th overall pick in 2019, has accumulated 33 points in 56 games in the AHL and has recorded five assists in 18 career games in the NHL. He is already strong both offensively and defensively.

He still has great potential, and Kent Hughes loves the players from the 2019 Draft, will he seize the opportunity? There is new development.


It would be a real possibility!

See what the excellent Marco D'Amico just posted.

"I'm not confirming that it will happen, but don't rule out the Montreal Canadiens as a team to claim Lassi Thomson off waivers today, given the battle on the right side of their defense.

That being said, I think he will be claimed very quickly."

Interesting! Indeed, we are talking about a solid young defender here, and it's very rare to be able to acquire one like this for free.

Behind the scenes, many experts believe he will be claimed very quickly.

Will he go to the Canadiens? Will Kent Hughes and Jeff Gorton seize the opportunity?

The answer at 2 PM today. Stay tuned!
