Kent Hughes has a plan, and it's working out pretty well for him so far. The Habs GM likes to give young players a second chance to prove themselves, and Kirby Dach is the first to answer the call.

Nolan Patrick is currently as free as a bird and would be a very cheap signing. The 2017 second overall pick has been injured more often than not, but if he's finally healthy, he could help a formation, especially at minimum wage.
His name has been linked to the CH to start in Laval. After that, his play and condition would dictate his future with the organization.
We're talking about a talented player who has been greatly slowed by injuries, particularly concussions. Signing him carries its share of risks, but at minimum salary for one year, it could pay off.
Remember that Patrice Bergeron suffered a major concussion early in his career, which caused him to miss almost a full season. Since then, he has played over 1,000 games and added nearly 1,000 points to his record.
