Kent Hughes and the Canadiens could receive an unexpected gift from the Anaheim Ducks

At last, the wait for this highly promising draft is drawing to a close. While Connor Bedars is guaranteed to be drafted at the very top of the draft, it's a completely different story for the others.
So much so, that new information has just surfaced. According to Elliotte Friedman, the Ducks could spring a surprise and not select Adam Fantilli at #2.
That would leave Adam Fantilli, Leo Carlsson or Will Smith for the Habs. Knowing that Hughes has a solid fondness for Smith and that he's ranked lower than Fantilli and Carlsson, the Habs could be in for a treat.
Nevertheless, it's tonight that we'll finally know the fate of the Canadiens and the order in which the players will be drafted.
