The Canadiens seem to be targeting a forward with their 5th pick, as Kent Hughes mentioned. But who? A recent article from TVA Sports might help us answer that question.

In a lengthy piece published across various Québecor platforms, Anthony Martineau has done a tremendous job by speaking with scouts, coaches, and players who have faced potential prospects for the Canadiens with the 5th pick.

Tij Iginla is a popular choice. A WHL coach drew a very interesting parallel about Jarome's son, and according to his description, the forward could fit very well into what the Canadiens are looking for:

"
Between the three, I would go with Tij Iginla. He's kind of like Matthew Tkachuk to me, and players like him are invaluable in the playoffs. The goals he scored this year while maintaining impeccable grit and work ethic were impressive. Tij has been acting like a professional for a long time already. He comes from a family led by a former NHL player [Jarome] who has had a lot of success. I'm not saying the other two aren't pros, but in my opinion, Tij is a future power forward who will contribute in many ways."
