Now that the regular season is over, we know what possibilities lie ahead for the Montreal Canadiens in the upcoming draft.

Regarding the next draft class, where the CH has a golden opportunity to add a top talent to their organization, journalist Mathias Brunet made an important statement about the player that Kent Hughes would target should the club not win the lottery.

According to what he revealed on BPM Sports, the talented 6 foot 4 inch, 216-pound centerman, Cayden Lindstrom, would be the young player on whom the Canadiens have their eye.

« I feel that Cayden Lindstrom, at 6'4′ and 210 pounds, who is really a power forward, I think that if Lindstrom is available at the 5-6-7th pick, it will be him [...] He fits the profile that the Canadiens are looking for. » - Mathias Brunet



Ranked by most experts between the 3rd and 9th pick, this prospect has raised eyebrows among scouts, even though he missed a good part of the season.

Nevertheless, his tally of 27 goals and 46 points in 32 games has stirred enough talk to keep him among the top prospects of this draft.

He will certainly be a player coveted by many teams, especially since some compare him to Quinton Byfield of the Los Angeles Kings, who had a strong breakout this year.

It's true that a player of his size, with his offensive skills and very robust playing style, does not come around in every draft. He's the type of player who would fit quite well in the Canadiens' top-6 in a few years.

This draft promises to be very exciting for Tricolore fans.
