The Canadiens hold the No. 9 overall pick in the first round of the NHL Entry Draft slated for Friday night in Buffalo.
Will Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin try to make a deal to move up? If he does, Pierre-Luc Dubois could be the player the GM has his sights on. In 62 games this season with the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles of the QMJHL, the 6-foot-2, 201-pound left-winger posted 42-57-99 totals. He is the top-rated North American prospect by NHL Central Scouting heading into the draft.
