  • According to McKeen’s, the Habs have one of the top prospect pools in the NHL.

  • Team Finland edged Denmark 3-2 at the 2024 World Hockey Championship. Unfortunately, Habs prospect Oliver Kapanen was kept off the board but is still tied for the tournament lead with six goals in six games. [IIHF Scoring Leaders]
  • Juraj Slafkovsky has earned six points in six games at the 2024 World Championship but is far from satisfied with his and Slovakia’s results.  [Juraj Slafkovsky Discusses Word Championship (Slovak)]

  • Of the 11 players drafted in front of him Anton Lundell, only four — including top pick Alexis Lafreniere and No. 3 Tim Stutzle — have played in more games than Lundell’s 216 in three seasons. Carolina’s Seth Jarvis picked No. 13, has played in 231. Lundell’s 43 goals and 116 points rank sixth among all first-round picks from 2020. [Florida Panthers]
  • Since the Boston Bruins were eliminated from the 2024 Stanley Cup Playoffs by the Florida Panthers this past Friday night, there has been speculation regarding head coach Jim Montgomery’s job security.[Boston Bruins]
  • Flames general manager Craig Conroy has a world of options this summer when it comes to improving his team. He can try to bring back Chris Tanev. Maybe bring in an agitating mentor for Martin Pospisil in the form of Tyler Bertuzzi. Jack Roslovic or Anthony Duclair would add some much-needed speed to the forward ranks. Or, Conroy could swing big on Martin Nečas. [Calgary Flames]
