Rather quiet so far, Kent Hughes is not looking to sign contracts that might be regrettable in three or four years.

Passive since July 1st, he might be tempted to add another depth player. At least, that's what analyst Marc-Olivier Beaudoin thinks. He recently mentioned an unexpected name as a possible acquisition for Kent Hughes and the Montreal Canadiens.
Rather unexpectedly, Kent Hughes wouldn't go for a flashy move, but rather sign a big forward known for his physical play and toughness. The idea is not uninteresting when you consider that this player caused havoc alongside Cal Clutterbuck and Casey Cizikas with the New York Islanders.

Matt Martin signed by the Montreal Canadiens and Kent Hughes?

See his exact post.
«Matt Martin still doesn't have a contract for the next season.
I would take him please to replace Michael Pezzetta on the 4th line. You?»

- Marc-Olivier Beaudoin

Even though Pezzetta is well-liked by his teammates and fans of the Canadiens, he doesn't bring the same dimension as Matt Martin. Pezzetta has done a very good job within his abilities and role, but many agree that adding Martin would improve the team.
At 35 years old, Matt Martin is a 6-foot-3, 215-pound forward who has always been praised as an extremely useful player for the New York Islanders for many years. He skates fast and knows how to make his presence felt every night. This dimension can be very important in the playoffs.
Is he the ideal 4th line player?
In the last season on Long Island, he scored 8 points in 57 games. The previous season, he recorded 19 points in 81 games.
He has always been solid in the playoffs, is really tough to play against (according to his opponents), and has accumulated 1,158 penalty minutes in his NHL career. He can be categorized as a tough guy.
A name to watch.
For a season at less than 1 million dollars, would you like Kent Hughes and Jeff Gorton to sign Matt Martin to help and protect the young players?
