According to a recent report by the excellent TVA Sports journalist Anthony Martineau, Kent Hughes seems on the verge of making a significant announcement.

It concerns the new acquisition Alex Newhook.

"An announcement regarding Alex Newhook's contract is expected to be made early next week.

Only a few details remain to be ironed out."



A great scoop obtained by Martineau here!

This is indeed excellent news and we are eager for the verdict. According to some rumors, Newhook would sign a contract similar to that signed by Kirby Dach last summer. (3 or 4 million for 3 or four seasons)

A case to follow in the next few hours!

Reminder of the trade:

"The Canadiens acquire the rights to forward Alex Newhook from the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for the 31st (obtained from Florida) and 37th overall picks in Montreal in 2023 and defender Gianni Fairbrother."

- Montreal Canadiens

Newhook, a 22-year-old center who was drafted 16th overall in 2019, just collected 30 points in 82 games playing less than 14 minutes/game in Colorado.
