The Montreal Canadiens have traded up in the 2024 NHL Enrry Draft, acquiring the 21st overall pick from the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for the 26th overall pick, along with a second round pick (57th) and a seventh round pick (198th)

Montreal, who already had the 5th selection in the draft, now move up five more spots later in the first round.
According to TSN's Darren Dreger, Montreal may not be done on the trade block, potentially looking to move up further into the first round, potentially adding another top ten pick if possible, but moving down from five is still possible.
Montreal appears poised to still be fielding calls ahead of tonight's draft, with multiple swirling options around their existing picks. Montreal has been linked to Russian superstar Ivan Demidov, who alleviated fears over the 'Russian Factor' with a good private showing for teams.
The Canadiens had the fifth overall selection in last year's draft, selecting right handed Austrian defenseman David Reinbacher out of Swiss club Kloten.
Round one of tonight's NHL draft starts at 7p.m. EST. The San Jose Sharks have the first overall selection, widely expected by most to take Boston University Center Macklin Celebrini to kick off the draft.
