It's a tune that has been echoed a lot among journalists covering the Montreal Canadiens for a while now, a tune that we have also shared, but Kent Hughes has just confirmed it.

Yes, upon the reopening of the NHL trade market, he will seriously attempt to acquire another Kirby Dach. (he's aiming for a 3 in 3)

Another big move for Kent Hughes in June?



The question was asked.


«I suppose we have been buyers to a certain extent at the drafts and sellers at the trade deadline. If the opportunity presents itself again at the draft, we will look to continue on this path and acquire young players.» - Kent Hughes

The General Manager of the Montreal Canadiens added that he would absolutely love to conclude another trade like the Kirby Dach/Alex Newhook one.


So, it will be very interesting to follow in June, and among the names that could fit this description, we find names like Trevor Zegras (obviously), but also Martin Necas, Kaapo Kakko, Peyton Krebs, and a few others.

In a way, the Canadiens will be «buyers» at the draft, and we love to hear that.

More and more, the goal will really be to make it back to the playoffs and acquire players ready to contribute immediately.
