There you go! Kent Hughes just completed his 2023 trade with Kirby Dach by acquiring the highly promising Alex Newhook.

Newhook is a center player with incredible skating ability, great intelligence on both sides of the ice, promising potential, and high offensive capabilities.

Solid transaction! Here's the official announcement:

"The Canadiens acquire the rights to forward Alex Newhook from the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for Montreal's 31st (acquired from Florida) and 37th overall picks in the 2023 draft, along with defenseman Gianni Fairbrother.»


- Montreal Canadiens

Ironically, he's exactly the kind of player the Winnipeg Jets would have wanted in exchange for Pierre-Luc Dubois.

More details to follow.

"Alex Newhook is a 22-year-old center who was drafted 16th overall in 2019. He just recorded 30 points in 82 games while playing less than 14 minutes per game. In a more favorable context for him, he could certainly flourish. A very good bet!" - Marc-Olivier Beaudoin with a solid summary
