The last few days have been eventful for the Canadiens and all NHL teams, and they will continue to be so for a few more weeks.

Following the draft, we had press conferences with key figures who work behind the scenes, like Nick Bobrov, Jeff Gorton, and Martin Lapointe. Yesterday, it was Kent Hughes' turn after the opening of the free agent market.
The biggest move made by the general manager on that day was signing Juraj Slafkovsky for 8 years, which is excellent news. Hughes didn't wait for Slafkovsky to become a star; he signed him immediately, and this could pay off in the future.
Following this signing, it will be Juraj Slafkovsky's turn to address the media in the next few minutes.
"Fresh off inking his new 8-year deal, #Habs Juraj Slafkovskż will speak with the media [via Zoom] tomorrow (July 2nd) about his contract extension."

"Update on the timing for #Habs Juraj Slafkovskż's [virtual] media availability today -- it'll now be at 11am ET." - Priyanta Emrith

The Slovak will be able to answer journalists' questions, of which they surely have many.
We remind you that Slafkovsky signed an 8-year deal worth 7.6 million per year, which will take effect in the 2025-26 season. Nick Suzuki remains, after Carey Price, the highest-paid player on the team.
Exciting times ahead!
