The NHL draft will take place in just over a month, and the Canadiens will have the 5th overall pick.

Just ahead of them are the Blue Jackets and Trevor Timmins. It's worth noting that Marc Bergevin is being considered for the vacant general manager position.
He could therefore reunite with Timmins, with whom he worked for over 10 years in Montreal.
Regarding the Canadiens' upcoming 5th overall pick, a surprise might be in store, as Tij Iginla is reportedly being targeted.
We know that Kent Hughes and his scouting team have met with him several times.
Iginla is projected as a potential 10th overall pick, but be careful. He is quite a scorer, like his father.
He tallied 84 points, including 47 goals in 64 games this season in the WHL. That's solid enough to be in the top 10, plus he has an interesting frame at 6' and 186 lbs.
The Canadiens are very interested in him, but it appears that the Blue Jackets also have him in their sights.
"Corey Pronman states in his Athletic Hockey Podcast depending on who you talk to around the league there are those who think Tij Iginla is in consideration as high as #4 in the draft." - The Columbus Blue Jackets Center

While Cayden Lindstrom is on everyone's lips for the 4th or 5th overall pick, we shouldn't underestimate the young Iginla. He could be selected much earlier because he is an outstanding scorer and has a lot of drive.
