Round 5

125th Overall - Nikolas Koberstein

Koberstein didn't sign with the Canadiens after his college career ended. He went to the USHL for a season post-draft, then played four with Alaska-Fairbanks in the NCAA. Koberstein played nine games in the ECHL at the end of his senior season, and the following season a 22-game stint in HockeyEttan in Sweden.

147th Overall - Daniel Audette

Audette had a lot of promise to be a late-blooming player after his draft year, but it never really worked out for the son of Donald Audette. He spent four seasons in the Montreal Canadiens farm system, then played a year in Springfield. He then went on a tour of Europe, playing in Liiga, the KHL, the SHL, and now found a home in the National League in Switzerland. He will play with Kloten in 2024-25.
