Canadiens Will Have a Chance to Draft Another Arturri Lehkonen in 2023

CANADIENS WILL HAVE A CHANCE TO DRAFT ANOTHER ARTURRI LEHKONEN IN 2023

BY AARON
Many Canadiens fans are still bittersweet about the Arturri Lehkonen trade.

While Justin Barron is a great prospect, and the 2024 2nd-round pick could very well become something special, Lehkonen has been truly outstanding in Colorado.

However, the Canadiens could redeem themselves, by drafting a player who is incredibly similar to Lehkonen in 2023.

Sebastian High, the Director of North American Scouting at DobberProspects first Tweeted about the comparison with the intriguing Oscar Fisker-Mølgaard:


I'm seeing a lot of Habs fans lamenting the Lehkonen trade, and all I'm thinking is that there's a 2023 draft eligible who consistently reminds me of Lehkonen and who could very well be available in the mid-second round.

Oscar Fisker-Mølgaard.




Then, on the Puck and Roll podcast, McKeen's scout Sam McGilligan, and DobberProspects Canadiens scout Aaron Itovitch discussed the matter. The consensus was clear, Fisker-Mølgaard could be the next Arturri Lehkonen.



OFM is a line elevator. He may not be the best player on a line, but he makes everybody else look better.


Sound eerily similar, right?

With Mølgaard likely to slip out of the first-round, should the Canadiens target this Lehky replacement?
