The least that can be said is that Kent Hughes likes to go after former first-round picks who are restricted free agents, like Kirby Dach and Alex Newhook.

The GM has mentioned it several times: a player's value is better when he doesn't have a contract, as it allows his new boss to choose his contract.
He signed Dach and Newhook after acquiring them, on quite advantageous terms for the Canadiens.
According to David Pagnotta, on the eve of the playoffs, another player in the same position is Cole Perfetti, in Winnipeg.
«I have mentioned Cole Perfetti several times recently, and his name continues to come up in discussions with various NHL people. Teams are curious about Winnipeg's plans for him and will inquire about his availability after his minimal use in the playoffs. He can become a restricted free agent in July.»

The match seems very possible, as Perfetti fits exactly what Kent Hughes is looking for, and his relationship with Winnipeg's GM, Kevin Cheveldayoff, is very good.
Moreover, the Jets have a good pool of young forwards, along with good veterans like Mark Scheifele and Kyle Connor.
Adding to the rumors, Perfetti played only one playoff game this year, leading to questions about whether he is still in the team's plans.
With two seasons of 30 points in 51 games and 38 points in 71 games, the 22-year-old center, who can also play wing, is ready for the next level.
Will Kent Hughes be tempted to offer the Jets their 26th overall pick, along with another pick or a prospect? That could very well be his next move.
