Surprising Flyers player has been linked to the Canadiens

Here is a very interesting development involving the Montreal Canadiens (Kent Hughes) and the Philadelphia Flyers (Daniel Brière).

According to reports, the door could open for the Canadiens to acquire young forward Joel Farabee.

And ironically, it would be thanks to none other than Matvei Michkov!

It should be noted that, according to recent developments, Michkov could surprise everyone and join the NHL as early as next season.

The Flyers would therefore have to make room for him in the offense:

According to journalist Marc-Antoine Godin from Radio-Canada, the arrival of Michkov could make forward Joel Farabee available in Philly.

"Joel Farabee is a guy who, in my opinion, has the tools to interest the Canadiens if the Canadiens want to proceed with a trade." - Marc Antoine Godin


Matvei Michkov arrives in Philadelphia; Joel Farabee joins the Montreal Canadiens?

It's a possibility to keep in mind anyway.

Farabee absolutely fits the description of what Kent Hughes is looking for in his next Kirby Dach/Alex Newhook, and additionally, the Flyers want to add reinforcement on defense.

This makes Kent Hughes and Daniel Brière intriguing trading partners.

Would you trade young defenders, like Jayden Struble or Justin Barron, in addition to the Winnipeg Jets' first-round pick, to acquire a forward like Joel Farabee?

Farabee, 24 years old, 14th overall pick (1st round) in 2018, has amassed 182 points in 334 career NHL games, including 82 goals.

The 6-foot, 190-pound winger notably collected 50 points in 82 games in 2024, including 22 goals.

At his draft year, experts compared him to Jake Guentzel.
