NHL Mock Draft 2021: Montreal Canadiens select Xavier Bourgault with 30th overall pick

With pick number 31 — the 30th overall selection with the Arizona Coyotes forfeiting pick number 11 — in the 2021 SB Nation NHL Mock Draft, Eyes On The Prize selects Xavier Bourgault from the Shawinigan Cataractes of the QMJHL.

This is the latest the Montreal Canadiens have ever selected in the first round in their history, and the latest they will make their first pick in a draft since 2008 when they didn’t have a first-rounder.

All of SB Nation’s NHL sites participate in this exercise annually, making the first-round pick of their respective team (this year with a few trades along the way).
