The Gazette’s Pat Hickey reports from Ottawa that the Canadiens were pleased with the players they selected at the entry draft, with Trevor Timmins, the team’s director of player personnel, being very optimistic.
"We had our list and we’re happy with the players that we drafted," he said. "We think we hit some home runs and now we have to see how the players develop."
On Danny Kristo, the team’s first pick, Timmins said: "He’s a strong skater with excellent speed," comparing Kristo with Ottawa’s Mike Fisher.
