Kent Hughes has a great opportunity to acquire a friend of Juraj Slafkovsky in this year's draft.

Indeed, Servac Petrovsky, who was selected in the 6th round in 2022 by the Minnesota Wild, did not receive an offer from them and is eligible for the draft again.
"As previously reported, the #mnwild don't plan to sign Servac Petrovsky by today's deadline. Eligible to re-enter the draft."

- Michael Russo

Players from the CHL remain the property of the team that drafted them for two years, after which they can be re-drafted. They are the only ones with this possibility.
Therefore, the Wild no longer have rights to Slaf's compatriot, and Kent Hughes could draft him.
Honestly, this is a difficult decision to understand from the Wild. Petrovsky is a 5'11", 177-pound center who is hardworking and has nearly a point per game in the OHL, with 55 points in 57 games this year.
Since the selection of Juraj Slafkovsky and Filip Mesar, the entire country of Slovakia is behind the Montreal Canadiens, and adding another Slovak to the group could be significant for the organization, especially since he is worth it.
This is definitely a name not to forget for this year's draft, and if he isn't selected, the Canadiens can still sign him as a free agent.
Imagine a line formed by Slaf, Mesar, and Petrovsky in the future; how exciting would that be!
