Expansion Draft: Montreal Canadiens
Las Vegas was not too thrilled when seeing the available players list for the Habs, the list is lacking skill players to make an impact right away and only one hidden gem. That hidden gem Charles Hudon, NHL columnist Dan Rosen displayed the reasons why this is the obvious choice for Vegas when he described his current numbers, “. He has four assists in six NHL games, all with Montreal. He had 162 points (75 goals, 87 assists) in 207 AHL games, including 49 points (27 goals, 22 assists) in 56 games this season”. Given the next best option is a seasoned Tomas Plekanec who has one more year on his $5.0 million contract, Hudon has explosive upside before becoming an RFA after next season.
