Montreal Canadiens Draft position

Check out the latest Montreal Canadiens news, highlights, and stories you may have missed Thursday.

Habs News

  • The Montreal Canadiens started their trade period off early this year by moving Monahan, but securing a 1st-rounder is not the only benefit to their early move. With the 2024 NHL Draft shaping up to be one filled with stellar talent and depth throughout the top 12, the Montreal Canadiens firmly securing their place within that range is imperative to advance their rebuild.

  • The chemistry between Habs forwards Cole Caufield and Juraj Slafkovsky continues to grow, both on and off the ice.

  • Slafkovsky has scored three goals in his last two games, indicating the hard work he’s put into working on his shot is starting to pay off. As the adage goes, practice makes perfect.


  • Speaking of shots, Caufield is scoring much less often with his one-timer this season.

  • Former Hab Mikhail Sergachev suffered an unfortunate and serious injury against the New York Rangers.

  • Winnipeg defenseman Brenden Dillon has been suspended three games for an illegal hit to the head on Pittsburgh Penguins center Noel Acciari Tuesday night. That means Dillon will not play in the Penguins’ rematch with the Jets on Saturday night in Winnipeg. [Pittsburgh Penguins]

  • Now it’s officially official. And it’s only fitting that Connor Bedard makes that official call. Live at Wrigley Field in a Blackhawks jacket, Bedard was on hand with the TNT crew to make the official announcement for Chicago. “On behalf of the Chicago Blackhawks,” Bedard told the TNT crew.  “We’re very excited to announce we’ll be hosting the 2025 NHL Winter Classic vs the St. Louis Blues here at Wrigley Field–so we’re all pretty pumped.” [Chicago Blackhawks]
