The Canadiens made a move today, and even though it's an AHL-level transaction, it makes a lot of sense. Nothing is done by chance.

Stanley25, JT Utah, and Max Truman discussed during a recent podcast episode how Kent Hughes prefers to acquire Quebec players in certain transactions.

«Source: At equal contracts, the Canadiens prefer to pick up a Hometown player.
