The Canadiens will be among the teams picking first in the upcoming draft, possibly within the top 5. Kent Hughes dreams of getting the first overall pick and has praised Macklin Celebrini a lot.

We know that the Canadiens' GM strives to select good players who are also good people and leaders. Many of the young players on the team were former captains or had leadership roles.
When managing the Logan Mailloux situation, Hughes mentioned one thing: that he was going to see if Logan could be a person of quality. It's one thing to be a good player, but the GM doesn't want a locker room cancer.
Regarding the upcoming first overall pick, Kent Hughes had high praise. It's rare for a GM to comment in such a way about the first overall pick, but in this case, it's quite evident.
«He is really talented, but what I notice most is his character.

He is so competitive. And he is already a leader within the second-best team [in the NCAA].»

- Kent Hughes

The difference between a good player and a good player and leader is very different. A leader will care about the performance of his teammates, and that's exactly Hughes' point.
«He doesn't just focus on his own game, but also that of his entire team. We often see very talented players, but he is a future captain. Macklin Celebrini will change the culture of the team that drafts him.»

- Kent Hughes

Wow! Those are very flattering words about the 17-year-old. Now imagine if the Canadiens, by an incredible stroke of luck, won the lottery and picked first overall!
