Now that the draft lottery is in the past, there are many questions about where Matvei Michkov will be selected.

The Russian prodigy is considered a generational talent, but his situation is very complex and could certainly give a break to many general managers.

Although the 18-year-old forward had confirmed that he would be present on June 28th, Michkov has just made a significant statement that could change many things for the upcoming draft.

Indeed, the Russian announced that he will probably not participate in the physical tests of the combine presented in Buffalo.


"I haven't heard anything about the combine. It is highly likely that I won't be there." - Matvei Michkov

The combine is often a crucial event in the decision-making process for NHL teams, and his absence could greatly diminish his chances of being drafted in the top 5.

We hope that this decision won't affect the plans of the Canadiens. There is no doubt that Matvei Michkov will become a superstar in the NHL, and we sincerely hope it will be in the Canadiens' uniform.
