The Montreal Canadiens have once more elected to move themselves out of the 2021 draft and defer to 2022. This time moving the 223rd overall pick to the Arizona Coyotes for a 2022 seventh-round pick.
The Coyotes trade a 7th-round pick in next year's draft to Montreal for the final pick in this draft and take Samuel Lipkin.https://t.co/4QbVWlayp8— Craig Morgan (@CraigSMorgan) July 24, 2021
Again, I like these moves. 2022 is a much deeper class, and it will be in Montreal. If there was nobody there for 223 that they really wanted to have in their prospect pool, it makes sense to punt again and
This move concludes the 2021 draft for the Canadiens, as they have no remaining selections today. We will have ongoing coverage coming up for those selections that the Habs have made.
