2021 NHL Draft: The Montreal Canadiens select Dmitri Kostenko with 87th pick

The Canadiens have added a well-rounded Russian defender to their prospect pool in the third round.

With their second choice in round three originally acquired from the Washington Capitals for Ilya Kovalchuk, the Canadiens selected Dmitri Kostenko from Spartak Moskva of the KHL.

Elite Prospects

In 40 games for Lada Togliatti in the VHL Kostenko scored one goal and added ten assists, while in 10 MHL games he added a goal and eight assists. His rights belong to Spartak Moskova for the upcoming season, though it is unclear if he’ll crack their KHL lineup

Montreal is now off the clock for a bit, but will have three picks in the upcoming fourth round.
