Top prospects for the 2024 NHL draft Montreal Canadiens

Here are the Montreal Canadiens news, highlights, and stories you may have missed on Friday.

Montreal Canadiens News

  • After Macklin Celebrini, there is perhaps no pure goal-scorer who could fill the Montreal Canadiens’ need for goals quite like Cole Eiserman. Although he may not be the favourite of the public scouting community, many NHL scouts remain intrigued by how good a player he could become down the line, as he seeks to diversify his game at the college level. To dive deeper into Eiserman’s game and his mindset moving forward, Montreal Hockey Now sat down with the prolific goalscorer earlier this week.

  • Forward Cole Caufield got off the schneid at the 2024 World Championship. He scored two goals as the United States beat Poland 4-1.


  • Consequently, he was named the Player of the Game.

  • Apparently, Juraj Slafkovsky is not a fan of captive animals.

  • Finland lost to Austria on Thursday, but not before Canadiens prospect Oliver Kapanen scored his sixth goal of the tournament in just his fourth game. He continues to lead all players in goal-scoring at the World Championship.

  • The New York Rangers rallied from a two-goal third-period deficit to defeat the Carolina Hurricanes 5-3 at PNC Arena Thursday. Chris Kreider had a third-period hat trick, and the Rangers advanced to the Eastern Conference Final, in the process denying the Pittsburgh Penguins a first-round pick. New York beat Carolina 5-3. The Penguins’ draft order is now set. By virtue of the Jake Guentzel trade, the Penguins would have received Carolina’s first-round pick if the Hurricanes advanced to the Stanley Cup Final. They would also have received a fifth-rounder if the Hurricanes won the Cup. Both are now void. [Pittsburgh Penguins]
  • As it turns out, the New Jersey Devils drafting defenseman Simon Nemec second overall in the 2022 NHL Draft was bang on. The Slovak defenseman has only become better and better each season since he was drafted and continues to prove why he was the right choice as a future top-pairing defenseman. [New Jersey Devils]
  • Boston Bruins captain Brad Marchand has finally addressed the sucker punch he took from Florida Panthers center Sam Bennett that injured him in Game 3. The upper-body injury forced him to miss Games 4 and 5 of the second-round playoff series between the Atlantic Division rivals but he could return to play in Game 6 at TD Garden on Friday night.
