The Montreal Canadiens need more depth in their forward lines, and Kent Hughes is ready to take the necessary steps to address this.

Before looking elsewhere, he must first ensure that he retains his prospects, and one of them is currently turning heads at the World Championship.
Oliver Kapanen is dominant, with 6 goals. Alongside Connor Bedard, he is undoubtedly the best player in the tournament. It's quite extraordinary.
Here's what Kent Hughes had to say:
"We are very pleased with Oliver's progress this season!" - Kent Hughes via RDS journalist Luc Gélinas

Additionally, the GM has met with Kapanen's agent, and it seems likely that he will sign his entry-level contract after the tournament.
This should be confirmed in the coming days, and the Canadiens will have a remarkable hockey player in their ranks.
With 14 points in 13 playoff games in Liiga, Kapanen is a player who knows how to elevate his game. He is particularly effective in front of the opposing net, recovering loose pucks and scoring.
Such a gem cannot be allowed to slip away, and Hughes intends to sign him right now, even though Kapanen has signed a two-year contract in Liiga.
"The young Oliver Kapanen, who is having a fantastic tournament, would like to reach an agreement with the Canadiens, but he is focused on the World Championship. Kent Hughes met with his agent in Helsinki, at the World Juniors, and they agreed to talk again after this tournament." - Luc Gélinas
