Kent Hughes prepares another major transaction

BY MARCO    JUNE 28, 2023  (11:30)
Kent Hughes is quite a poker player, to say the least. He hides his game very well, and nobody knows his true intentions.

After acquiring Alex Newhook yesterday, the Habs GM could well make another major move today, with his 5th overall pick up for grabs.

Elliotte Friedman reports.

"No one believes the Habs are done making moves. There are a lot of teams in the league that believe Montreal is willing to trade its #5 pick to move back."


- Elliotte Friedman

We know that the Detroit Red Wings are very aggressive in the matter and would be willing to trade their 9th and 17th picks, as well as a promising defenseman.

The Capitals, Flyers and Predators are also very interested in this pick, which will certainly raise the stakes.

The chance of drafting a player like Matvei Michkov, for example, is hard to come by. However, if Hughes receives an offer that's impossible to refuse, expect the 5th pick to no longer be for Montreal.
