Kent Hughes and the Montreal Canadiens have just received some very bad news

The Montreal Canadiens are currently in a good position to make some very big moves in the upcoming draft. With his own pick, as well as the Florida Panthers' pick, which was obtained in the Ben Chiarot trade last year, Kent Hughes currently has the 7th and 10th best picks.

To everyone's surprise, Florida isn't really seeing the results they were hoping for this season, as the teams record is less than .500 right now.

Canadiens fans and most likely the club's management are currently dreaming that this pick will continue to significantly improve the Tricolore's chances of winning the lottery, or at least selecting in the top ten.

However, Hughes and the Habs will be disappointed to learn that their opponents tonight will have a high quality backup for their game, as Aleksander Barkov, Aaron Ekblad and Radko Gudas will all be returning to the lineup after being sidelined by injury.


Let's just say that this is a very high quality reinforcement to get their team back on track after three consecutive losses to the Panthers. Of course, this could also greatly affect the draft rankings related to their first pick, which belongs to the Habs.

Needless to say, this game is very important for Martin St-Louis' team, as it could extend the Panthers' losing streak to four.

The Panthers' performances will be scrutinized by us Habs Fans until the end of the season!
