The wait until June 28 is endless. We can’t wait to find out which player the Canadiens will select with the fifth overall pick. The player selected could literally change the face of the franchise.

It’s quite surprising to see Michkov at the top of this ranking, especially considering all the controversy that has surrounded him over the past few months. Nonetheless, he would be a very interesting project for the CH, if his talent alone is anything to go by.
Leo Carlsson has an incredibly high 25.00 rating. Let’s face it, the Canadiens will certainly draft him if he’s still available in the fifth round, but that would be very surprising.
My colleague, Marc-Olivier Cook, made me realize that Zach Benson has very high odds. Yet he could very well be in the CH’s sights at No. 5 if all the big names leave during the first four picks and Matvei Michkov doesn’t interest Kent Hughes.
The choice is much more difficult than last year, when only three names were rumored for the Habs’ first pick: Juraj Slafkovsky, Shane Wright and Logan Cooley.
So, who will be the Habs’ next draft pick?
– That’s one proud dad.
