102nd Overall - Jack Smith

Jack Smith hasn't shown much offensive upside since getting drafted in 2020, meaning the Habs may not end up signing him when the time comes. The Habs are limited with their contract slots, and a non-offensive forward wouldn't benefit them right now. Smith scored 16 points in 57 USHL games and 17 in 58 games with Minnesota-Duluth in the NCAA.

109th Overall - Blake Biondi

Blake Biondi looks like the better Minnesota-Duluth player from this round, playing with Smith for the last two seasons in the NCAA. Biondi had 58 points in 119 games at Minnesota-Duluth and hit the transfer portal this year to join Notre Dame for the 2024-25 season. Biondi is another player who will likely test free agency after his NCAA career ends.

124th Overall - Sean Farrell

Farrell is another player from the 2020 draft class who made his NHL debut. Farrell played six games with the Habs last season after leaving Harvard but didn't get called to the big club this season. He spent the entire year in Laval, tallying 28 points in 47 games. Farrell has been a valuable offensive performer at every level, and development to that at the NHL level would help solve the Habs' scoring concerns.
