Kent Hughes about to trade Michael Pezzetta? The expected return would be surprising, and this proposal makes a lot of sense

The Montreal Canadiens are not making the playoffs again this year, and Kent Hughes could very well be in selling mode by the end of the season. The only problem is that the players with the most value are not necessarily available.

Indeed, Kent Hughes has already mentioned that he is not looking to trade David Savard and Michael Matheson. As for the young players, it's not even worth thinking about.

One player who clearly doesn't fit into the plans is Michael Pezzetta. The robust and spirited forward has accumulated 10 points this season, which is very respectable for a 4th-line player.

Pezz is also capable of delivering solid hits and dropping the gloves, which could interest some teams, especially with the playoffs approaching.


According to the Canucks Army website, the Canadiens' forward could be interesting for the Canucks, and they would trade a 4th-round pick for him.

It's an interesting return for a player drafted in the 6th round. However, it makes a lot of sense since the Canucks are not built for the playoffs.

Although they are one of the best teams in the NHL this season, they seriously lack grit, and they will need to address this situation. Hence, the idea of giving a good price for a player like Pezzetta.
