The possibility of Adin Hill with the Canadiens is real

BY MARCO    JUNE 15, 2023  (11:45)
Before lifting the Stanley Cup, goaltender Adin Hill was relatively unknown to the general public, especially in Montreal. However, he is very familiar with the Canadiens organization.

Indeed, when the Tricolore was in the process of looking for a number 2 goaltender, Adin Hill's name was in the discussions, but the Habs decided to go with Jake Allen.

Here's what Stéphane Waite had to say on the subject:

"I believe in this guy's potential, and we've been doing it for a long time. When we were looking for a good second goalie and he was with the Phoenix Coyotes, he was in the discussions in Montreal, Adin Hill.


In the end, we went with Jake Allen, but Hill was one of our three guys in the discussions, because I believed in his talent at the time, especially a 6'4" goalie, and I really liked that. We tried to interest him, but Arizona didn't go for it.

- Stéphane Waite



Considering that Jake Allen is increasingly injured, that Hill will be an uncompensated free agent on July 1 and that the Golden Knights have no wiggle room under the salary cap, it'll be surprising to see if the Habs are still interested in his services.

After all, he had an excellent season and better playoffs.
