After selecting Cedrick Guindon with the 127th selection and trading the 128th pick to the Vegas Golden Knights, the Montreal Canadiens selected Jared Davidson at 130th overall. The over-age, 6’0” centre spent last season with the Seattle Thunderbirds of the WHL, putting up 89 points in 64 games.

Elite Prospects

After only putting up 16 points in his first draft-eligible season, Davidson has shown strong improvement, tallying a near point-per-game pace in the COVID-19 pandemic-abbreviated 2020-21 season and surpassing that this year. The centre is also no stranger to having to work his way into the next level, as he originally joined the Thunderbirds through an open tryout after going undrafted in the 2017 WHL Bantam Draft.

The next Habs pick is scheduled for 162th overall, the first selection of the sixth round.
