A few days ago, the Montreal Canadiens announced the signing of Lias Andersson, an enigmatic forward who was drafted 7th overall in the 2017 Draft.

He had been the choice of the New York Rangers, and it was even two current members of the Canadiens organization who made this selection, namely Jeff Gorton who was acting as general manager, and Nick Bobrov as the director of amateur scouting.

Normally, due to this connection between the new leadership of the Canadiens and the 24-year-old player, we could have expected that both men were the main architects behind this signing.

However, according to what we learn in an article by excellent journalist Guillaume Lefrançois of La Presse, neither of the two have spoken with the Swedish player since his acquisition, which dates back nearly two weeks.


It is quite a surprising observation, it must be admitted. He revealed that he had had "no contact" with them since he agreed with the Habs.

However, it should be noted that Andersson seems very excited and motivated by this new challenge, even stating that he wants to do everything to earn a spot with the main team.
