Just three days before the NHL Draft, speculation is rampant about the possible choice of the Montreal Canadiens with their 5th pick.

While we heard less and less about the possibility of the Habs setting their sights on Russian phenomenon Matvei Michkov with their high pick, a turn of events would have just occurred within the CH.

Indeed, according to the latest reports concerning the 2023 draft, a well-connected NHL scout revealed a scoop about the Montreal organization. He stated that the Canadiens are very interested in Michkov.

Great interview with an unnamed NHL scout.


- He heard that Montreal is really interested in Michkov


Wow! This would be absolutely major for the team's future, as he is possibly the greatest offensive talent in this draft, with many experts believing he is even equal or superior to Connor Bedard in the opponent's zone.

In short, it's still shaking up behind the scenes of the National League, and we strongly hope that Kent Hughes and the club management opt for the player with the greatest potential at the 5th tier, and if Michkov is still available at that rank, he must be the organization's choice.
