The 2021 draft started with some controversy, but Marc Bergevin managed to find some diamonds in the rough in his last draft as general manager of the Canadiens.

Xavier Simoneau

191st Overall - Xavier Simoneau

Simoneau has been a good player for the Rocket over the last two seasons, with 75 points in 115 games. The Habs' center depth is an area of concern, and Simoneau could force his way onto the team in the 2024-25 season at some point.

214th Overall - Joe Vrbetic

The only goalie on this list, Joe Vrbetic has a ways to go before he makes his NHL debut. Vrbetic spent the 2023-24 season in Trois-Rivieres, owning a 3.52 goals-against average and a .891 save percentage. He will need to work his way up the depth chart soon, as the Habs' tandem of Sam Montembeault and Cayden Primeau likely isn't going anywhere until Jacob Fowler makes the pro move.
