Canadiens draft rumor confirmed

BY MARCO    JUNE 17, 2023  (9:58)
This year's NHL draft will be held in Nashville on June 28 and 29. The Canadiens have 11 picks, including two in the 1st round, but that could change.

There's a lot of talk that Kent Hughes is actively looking to improve his lot and move up into the top 4. This rumor has been confirmed and even more, we now know that the reason behind this craze is Will Smith.

"[This rumor is] confirmed by a source gravitating in the upper echelons of an NHL team."

"The Habs are very aggressive about climbing into the top four. They're willing to pay dearly," said the source. There's no hiding it. The player the Habs want is Will Smith."


- Jonathan Bernier



It's certain that Kent Hughes has a price party for this player, and he doesn't even seem to be hiding it. We'll know in the next few days whether the Habs' GM is in a position to materialize a deal with the Sharks or the Ducks.
