Montreal Canadiens: What Does Nathan Legare Bring To The Habs?

The Montreal Canadiens acquired Nathan Legare in the three-team trade with the Sharks and Penguins, as he was the lone prospect involved in the blockbuster deal.

Following his other 2019 NHL Draft acquisitions, Kent Hughes opted for another player from the same class. Legare spent the 2021-22 campaign in the American Hockey League with the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins, and the native of Montreal, QC., managed eight goals, eleven assists and 19 points through 68 games during his second professional season.

Legare, was in part, a lesser asset in the trade that ultimately saw Jeff Petry head back to Montreal, and Erik Karlsson to the Penguins.
