Just like last year, Kent Hughes' Canadiens will be selecting fifth in the upcoming draft, which will take place next June in Las Vegas.

While last year Kent Hughes kept his pick to select David Reinbacher, it could be different this year as the Canadiens' GM might move up to select the player he truly desires.
If the selection of Macklin Celebrini by the Sharks with the first pick is a foregone conclusion, the same cannot be said for the second pick held by the Chicago Blackhawks, as expert projections vary greatly on which player the organization will choose.
Some say Ivan Demidov, while others mention defenseman Artyom Levshunov, but logic would suggest that the Hawks will choose the Russian forward who would fit perfectly with Connor Bedard.
As we know, the vast majority of Canadiens fans hope that the organization will focus on a forward this year.
And what if Kent Hughes wanted to move up to the second pick to secure the services of Ivan Demidov?

The price to pay for the 2nd pick of the Chicago Blackhawks if Kent Hughes and the Montreal Canadiens want to move up via trade

This is an interesting option, but as reported by the site Info LNH, the price will be very high.
At least, that's what journalist Bill Scott has stated. According to him, Kent Hughes will have to give up his two first-round picks this year (5th and 26th), as well as prospect Owen Beck.

Let's say it's a pretty steep price to acquire a young prospect who hasn't yet played a game in the big league.
But with Kent Hughes, one is never safe from a surprise, especially since he has been active in the trade market during his first two drafts.
