The Canadiens are actively preparing for the final stretch leading up to the NHL Draft. They are currently meeting with a top prospect in Las Vegas.

Anton Silayev is a unique player in the upcoming draft. The towering defenseman has been compared to Zdeno Chara—a massive defenseman with strong skating ability and offensive flair.
Already in the United States, the Russian-born prospect is meeting with the 10 teams holding top 10 picks in the first round.
As you know, the Canadiens hold the 5th overall selection. Silayev presents an intriguing profile. Some experts view him as potentially underwhelming, while others believe he could develop into a top defenseman.
In the KHL, the Russian rearguard has performed well against adults and appears ready to make the jump to the NHL as soon as next season.
Anton Silayev could also draw strong interest from teams like the Ducks, who hold the 3rd pick, and even the Blackhawks with the 2nd selection.
This second meeting could potentially sway decisions leading up to Friday night when the first round kicks off in Las Vegas.
