Round 5

138th Overall - Darren Dietz

After his three-year run with the organization ended, Montreal never offered Dietz an NHL contract. He appeared in 13 games for the Canadiens in 2015-16, earning his first career goal and four assists. He has been in the KHL since 2017-18.

Round 6

168th Overall - Daniel Pribyl

The Canadiens relinquished Pribyl's rights, as he continued his career with HC Sparta Praha. The Calgary Flames signed Pribyl to a two-year entry-level contract for the 2016-17 season, and he recorded 15 points in 33 games. Pribyl tore his ACL before the following year's training camp and returned home after his contract ended.

Round 7

198th Overall - Colin Sullivan

Sullivan stayed at Avon Old Farms Prep School after getting drafted by the Canadiens before attending Boston College in the 2012-13 season. He left Boston College to return to the USHL the following season, then attended Miami University for three more seasons. He played for a year in the ECHL with Atlanta before heading overseas for three seasons in France.
