16th Overall - Kaiden Guhle

Guhle averaged nearly a point per game in the 2021-22 season in the WHL, showing some offensive upside. He won a silver medal with Canada at the World Juniors, kickstarting his rise to the Canadiens' lineup. Guhle went to his first training camp as a pro in 2022 with no expectations of making the Canadiens roster but made the team out of camp and spent the full season with the NHL squad.

Guhle has 40 points in 117 games with the Canadiens and is a valued piece of their defensive corps. Guhle's name appeared in some trade talks, with the Habs likely moving on from some of their defense to add more scoring. However, Guhle's success at his Men's World Championship debut in 2024 could add even more value for the Habs.

Round 2

47th Overall - Luke Tuch

Tuch finally signed his entry-level contract this year, committing to the Habs for the next two years. Tuch had a good career at Boston University, culminating in 30 points in 39 games in his Senior season. He won a Hockey East Championship with the Terriers in 2022-23.

48th Overall - Jan Mysak

Mysak didn't fully live up to the hype in 88 games with Laval since making his professional debut, recording only 29 points. The Canadiens felt like Mysak could use a change of scenery at this past season's trade deadline, moving him to the Anaheim Ducks for Jacob Perreault.
