It is very likely that Kent Hughes will be a busy man in the coming weeks with the NHL draft fast approaching.

As we know, one of the objectives of the Montreal Canadiens' general manager will be to find a forward capable of playing in the top two lines of Martin St-Louis's lineup. However, to achieve this, the organization will have to sacrifice some assets.
On this subject, as reported by the site Marqueur.com, three young Canadiens' defensemen could potentially be offered on the trade market.
According to the well-known insider from The Fourth Period, David Pagnotta, the surplus of defensemen in the Canadiens' roster could be addressed via trade. He suggests that Justin Barron, Jayden Struble, and Jordan Harris might be part of a possible transaction during the offseason.

Three Canadiens' defensemen put on the market by Kent Hughes: Justin Barron, Jayden Struble, and Jordan Harris

Here are the details:
«The Canadiens could trade one of Justin Barron, Jayden Struble, or Jordan Harris to alleviate the congestion on the blue line.»

Let's say these three young defensemen are indeed likely to be sacrificed by Kent Hughes because if he were in the running for a player like Martin Necas or Trevor Zegras, something interesting must be given in return.
Furthermore, Pagnotta also mentioned in his text that it would be very surprising if Kaiden Guhle, Lane Hutson, Logan Mailloux, and David Reinbacher were offered by the Canadiens to acquire a top-6 forward.
