The Montreal Canadiens have built up a great group of prospects in the past few years. We haven’t looked back at the most recent draft because it is a little too early to make any grand proclamations about 19 or 20 year old hockey players.
So, we have been looking back at the drafts a little earlier than that. We started with the 2017 NHL Draft and have been working our way backwards. Today, we take a look at the 2011 NHL Draft.
The Canadiens were a little thin on early picks in 2011. They had a solid regular season, finishing sixth in the Eastern Conference with 96 points.
