2022 NHL Entry Draft: Montreal Canadiens trade pick 128 to Vegas Golden Knights
With back-to-back picks and three in a span of four, Kent Hughes offloaded one for a future asset.
The Montreal Canadiens had back-to-backs near the end of the fourth round of the 2022 NHL Entry Draft at 127 and 128, then another at 130. After selecting Cedrick Guindon at 127th, the management team made the decision to trade 128 to the Vegas Golden Knights to acquire Vegas’s fourth-rounder in 2023.
