NHL Draft: A total of 14 picks for the CH< /p> UPDATE DAY

Holding the first pick of the National Hockey League draft, the Montreal Canadiens have 13 other selections for this annual session.

In the Thursday evening, after the question burning on everyone's lips as to whether Shane Wright or Juraj Slafkovsky will be the lucky one, the CH must normally call a second player with the 26th choice in total.

The day of Friday, during which rounds 2 to 7 will be in the spotlight, could see the Canadian select a dozen hopefuls, including eight during the second, third and fourth rounds (33rd, 62nd, 66th, 75th, 92nd, 98th , 127th and 128th).

Obviously, transactions remain likely, either for players from another team or to come forward and draft a few ranks earlier.

The Habs harvest could end with a fifth-round pick (130th), a sixth-round pick (162nd) and two seventh-round picks (194th and 216th).
