Kent Hughes could have an unexpected stroke of luck ahead of the upcoming NHL draft.

As they say, one person's misfortune is another's gain, and that's certainly the case here. The Canadiens will have the chance to pick among the top 7 on May 7th, but there's more to it.
Indeed, two players projected to go in the top 5 are injured, which could cause them to drop. We're talking about two very talented forwards, interestingly enough.
Firstly, the sturdy Cayden Lindstrom is injured and will miss the Under-18 World Championship. Additionally, the player projected to go 2nd overall, Ivan Demidov, has suffered a serious injury.
With 60 points in 30 games for St. Petersburg this season, Demidov has sustained a serious leg injury. He's currently in a cast and on crutches, missing valuable time both on and off the ice.
We're talking about a player like Matvei Michkov, without the concerns that come with it. A highly talented player with the potential to transform a team.
He's currently nursing a knee injury, and it seems it's not the first time. It's worrying, but if he's available when the Canadiens pick, Kent Hughes will have no choice but to consider him.
