It's buzzing in the NHL today, and also with the Montreal Canadiens.

Kent Hughes has just acquired Alex Newhook from the Colorado Avalanche.


In return, the Avalanche will receive the 31st and 37th picks from the Canadiens, as well as defenseman Gianni Fairbrother.


Newhook is a former first-round pick, 16th overall in 2019. He recorded 30 points in 82 games last season.

Similar to Kirby Dach, he is destined for a bright future, and he could thrive in Montreal under the guidance of Martin St. Louis.
