Kent Hughes could be interested in Alex Killorn this summer

Alex Killorn will become an unrestricted free agent after the 2023 playoffs. While his file is Julien BriseBois’ priority, the GM doesn’t have a lot of money, so the chances of the player finding a new club from July 1 are high.

Killorn is at the end of a seven-year contract that paid him $4.45 million per season, and according to Jean-Charles Lajoie and Tony Marinaro, the Montrealer could possibly interest Kent Hughes. The winger is a player who fits perfectly into Martin St-Louis’ philosophy. He wouldn’t win Montreal a Cup, but with his experience, he’d be a great help to the youngsters and ease the transition from a rebuilding club to a competitive team. Killorn was born in Halifax, but grew up in Montreal. When he was younger, he was a big CH fan, hence the links. I’m sure he’ll do everything to stay in Tampa Bay, but if he had no choice but to leave, Montreal could be an interesting option for him, unless his goal is to win yet another Stanley Cup.

Normally, it won’t come here at a discount. But I think we have a good relationship with Kent Hughes.

Obviously, a guy like Killorn shouldn’t be overpaid. In addition to his loyal forward, BriseBois will have to work on Corey Perry, Pierre-Édourard Bellemare, Ian Cole and Brian Elliott, all of whom become unrestricted free agents. A guy like Ross Colton also becomes a free agent, but with restrictions. Killorn in the metropolis: is that a yes? He’s just had the best season of his career with 64 points, including 27 goals, in 82 games.


CH made too many excuses.

– Clearly.

– Bad news.

– Really?

– It feels like the end for him.
