According to Marc Antoine Godin of The Athletic, at least three women are candidates for the open general manager position with the Montreal Canadiens.

From Godin's most recent column for The Athletic (translated from French):
''We are told that an exhaustive list of candidates has already been drawn up and that it will take a long time to interview everyone the Habs have in their sights. It won't be a quick process. Among this long list, we are also told that at least three women are approached for the position.
Molson has announced that he wants to improve diversity in hockey operations, and this is the first proof of his seriousness. Of course, interviewing women for the post of CEO does not necessarily mean that one of them will be hired for that specific post. But the mere fact that women are being considered shows that Molson's diversity initiative has teeth, and it is certainly a step in the right direction for hockey in general. In addition, even if a woman is not hired as GM, speaking to these candidates could make them valuable additions to other positions in the hockey management, which currently has only four people, i.e. Gorton, John Sedgwick, Martin Lapointe and Sean Burke.''

Unfortunately, Godin does not name names, but we do know that the team's next general manager must be bilingual, which narrows the field considerably.
Marie Philip Poulin, has been engaged in expanding the sport of women's hockey in her native Quebec.
Another option would be Manon Rheaume, employed as a Detroit Red Wings analyst on Bally Sports Detroit, is in the same boat.
