To everyone's surprise, the Montreal Canadiens suddenly announced a last-minute press conference scheduled for Thursday, with Jeff Gorton set to address the media in Las Vegas.

Is this announcement a prelude to a significant change before the draft on Friday and Saturday?

Canadiens announce press conferences for Jeff Gorton and Kent Hughes

Gorton is not known for enjoying the limelight without substance. He prefers to let his actions speak for themselves.
"Habs pre-draft media availability tomorrow (Thursday) in Las Vegas will be with VP of Hockey Operations Jeff Gorton. GM Kent Hughes will speak Friday night after the conclusion of the 1st Round of the 2024 #NHLDraft." - Priyanta Emrith

We have few details on what will be announced, but the mere fact that the Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations is willing to speak to the media says a lot.
Will the Canadiens announce a trade? It's highly unlikely!
Will Jeff Gorton reveal his strategy for the draft? Impossible! Revealing his plans would give ammunition to other clubs targeting a specific player in the top-5.
Could it be that Jeff Gorton is stepping down from his role as Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations? It's not impossible, but it seems unlikely after the end-of-season press conference, although opportunities can arise quickly. We know he dreams of a General Manager position in the Bettman circuit!
We could speculate all day, but let's wait to see the announcement scheduled for tomorrow. One thing is certain, he will be supported by the great Chantal Machabée.
