Given that the Montreal Canadiens are no longer in the running for a playoff spot, the attention of fans turns to the potential arrival of Lane Hutson.

Indeed, the Tricolore's prospect has, once again this season, turned heads with his simply sensational performances. The young American defender notably leads all defensemen in scoring with an impressive haul of 15 goals and 34 assists (49 points) in 37 games.

These performances have earned him a spot among the top 10 finalists for the Hobey Baker Award, given to the top player in the NCAA. Of course, the fact that a defenseman is considered for such an honor shows how talented Lane Hutson is and that he has a hugely promising potential.

Moreover, many fans are currently closely watching the performances of the Boston University Terriers, as when season number 20 ends, he will officially be able to sign an entry-level contract with the Montreal Canadiens and join the team for the remainder of the 2023-2024 season.


However, in recent days, numerous rumors have circulated regarding the 62nd overall pick in 2022. Indeed, according to information leaked by Danny Dubé on 98.5, Lane Hutson's entourage might be putting pressure on him to stay in university to eventually sign with the team of his choice when the Bleu-Blanc-Rouge no longer holds his NHL rights.

Lane Huston's Arrival with the Montreal Canadiens: New Information Emerges



On the other hand, in the last few hours, new information has emerged through Mathias Brunet on BPM Sports.

Indeed, the host shared excellent news with Montreal fans, who were starting to worry about the young 20-year-old defender. According to his information, there is no concern about Lane Hutson's arrival. The organization's plan is clear: Kent Hughes will offer him a contract at the end of his season to bring him to the CH for a few games.

« What I know is that at the Canadiens, we will be shocked if we don't sign [Lane Hutson] at the end of the season. We can reassure some, there was never any question of not offering him a contract or not bringing him to the National League this year. » - Mathias Brunet

This is excellent news!

Currently in the NCAA Frozen Four, Lane Hutson and Macklin Celebrini will face the University of Denver in the semifinal, while Jacob Fowler will go up against the University of Michigan. If both teams from Boston win, we will have a match involving two of the organization's top prospects in the grand final.

This match would be played on April 13, which means Lane Hutson could join the Montreal Canadiens for the last two games of the campaign against the Detroit Red Wings.

But fear not, we will have the opportunity to see the Tricolore's prospect in action very soon. One thing is for sure, we are all eager to see him hit the ice at the Bell Centre dressed in blue, white, and red.
