Major statement from the Blue Jackets that will impact the Canadiens at the draft

BY MARCO    JUNE 23, 2023  (8:00)
The Clumbus Blue Jackets have made no secret of the fact that they will be selecting a center in the upcoming draft.

With the 3rd overall pick, the options are pretty big, given that four of the top five prospects are centers.

The only winger is Matvei Michkov, so it's safe to say they won't be selecting him. In fact, the team has gone on record as saying who they like in the prospects.

Looking for a big, stable Swedish center? Well, Leo Carlsson is your man."

Still, there's a question. Did the Jackets do this to get the Ducks to reconsider their decision to go for Carlsson instead of Adam Fantilli?



In any case, the logical 3rd pick in the draft remains Leo Carlsson, and it wouldn't be surprising if he ended up realistically in Columbus.
