Habs Daily: Canadiens Mock Draft, Most Wanted 2024 Prospects



Top prospects for the 2024 NHL draft Montreal Canadiens

Here are the Montreal Canadiens news items, highlights, and stories from Wednesday.

Montreal Canadiens News

  • The latest ‘Habs Fans Vote’ poll results are out, and the message could not be any clearer. Canadiens fans want the team to draft a forward with the fifth overall pick. Over 85 percent of the votes were cast for three prospects, who all happen to be forwards.  [Habs Fans Vote – Most Wanted Canadiens 2024 Draft Targets]
  • The Montreal Canadiens were looking to be active on the trade front this summer, and they now have even more reason to do so. The big issue at the moment is that, after signing free-agent goaltender Connor Hughes, the Habs already have 41 contracts on the books for next season, meaning they can only add nine more moving forward.

  • The Florida Panthers were at full strength Wednesday as the team held their second practice in preparation for the 2024 Stanley Cup Final against the Edmonton Oilers. Game 1 is not until Saturday night. On Wednesday, the Panthers had Sasha Barkov and Dmitry Kulikov back on the ice as the team did a little special teams work and got after it a little harder than Tuesday. Perhaps knowing they will have Thursday off was a nice little carrot. [Florida Panthers]
  • Florida Panthers star Matthew Tkachuk has quite the history with the Edmonton Oilers. Enough so that the agitating power forward made sure to mention them during his introductory press conference after he arrived in South Florida via a trade from the Calgary Flames. “I hate Edmonton,” Tkachuk said that fateful day in June 2022. “But I hate Tampa more now.” Two years later, Tkachuk is back into a pseudo-Battle of Alberta in the Stanley Cup Final, along with former Flames teammates Sam Bennett and Ryan Lomberg. [Florida Panthers]
  • New Jersey Devils General Manager Tom Fitzgerald has not backed off his wishlist for goaltenders in a Devils trade. The Devils’ GM remains interested in acquiring Calgary Flames goaltender, Jacob Markstrom, or Boston Bruins goaltender, Linus Ullmark. [New Jersey Devils]
