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

Montreal Canadiens News

  • Top 2024 prospect Zayne Parekh had nothing but great things to say about Montreal Canadiens prospect Owen Beck. Beck and Parekh were instrumental in earning Saginaw its first hockey championship in team history. Beck, in particular, was a dominant presence, which led to the 20-year-old centre securing Most Valuable Player honours at the Memorial Cup. Now that his CHL career is over, it’s time to take a look at how Beck can take the next step in his career, which will also be the most difficult challenge he’s faced to date.  [The Next Step For Top Montreal Canadiens Prospect Owen Beck]

  • The third part of our 2024 Montreal Hockey Now mock draft has been released, covering picks from the Calgary Flames, the New Jersey Devils, the Buffalo Sabres, and the Philadelphia Flyers. As a reminder, the Canadiens ended up drafting power forward Cayden Lindstrom at fifth overall.  [2024 NHL Mock Draft – Revealing Picks No.9 To No.12]
  • The NHL’s scouting combine is taking place in Buffalo this week, which means teams are interviewing players to put the last touches in place prior to the 2024 NHL Entry Draft in Vegas, on June 28. The Habs are well known to perform intense due diligence during this process, and they tend to speak to as many prospects as possible, which is encouraging, but some of their tactics are a little odd to say the least.

  • F1 star Valtteri Bottas, along with the rest of the F1 community, will be in Montreal on June 9 for the Canadian Grand Prix. Bottas always takes advantage of his visit to have a little fun with his favourite hockey team. Or perhaps it’s his second-favourite hockey team, with all due respect to the Pelicans.

  • It seemed like a neverending series of dramatic storylines, disappointments, and frustration. The Pittsburgh Penguins season had more plot twists than any evening drama series could imagine but with far more episodes. The NHL schedule makers packed the Penguins season tightly in the beginning and end, so a storyline never lasted too long. [Pittsburgh Penguins]
  • What is next for goaltender Juuse Saros?  Saros is eligible for an extension this summer as he enters his last season of a four-year, $20 million contract ($5M AAV) he signed with the Predators in August 2021.  As we approach July 1,  two notable goaltenders become eligible for extensions, Saros and New York Rangers goaltender Igor Shesterkin.

  • General Manager Tom Fitzgerald has been quite open about an impending New Jersey Devils trade, whether it be for the 10th overall selection at the 2024 NHL Draft or for a goaltender. Recently, we learned that Fitzgerald remains interested in two goaltenders he’s already attempted to pry from their respective teams before he went out and acquired former Hab Jake Allen and Kappo Kahkonen .[New Jersey Devils]
