Rise up this mornin’, smiled with the risin’ sun. Four little Slovaks pitch by my doorstep. Singin’ sweet songs of melodies pure and true, sayin’ “This is my message to you-ou-ou:” Slovakia has had four players in total drafted over the last three years, none of them going in the first two rounds. This year, they will not only get their first prospects drafted in the opening round since Marko Dano in 2013.

All the right tools are there — skating, puck-handling, decent size — and a really late birthday makes him even more intriguing. He is a very raw prospect, needing time to mature, and Skellefteå and coach Robert Ohlsson, one of the best coaches currently in SHL, might be able to do just that.

Having already made the opening selection of the 2022 NHL Entry Draft, the Montreal Canadiens are back on the clock at 26th overall. This pick was part of a package from the Calgary Flames that included a 2023 fifth-round selection, prospect Emil Heineman, and NHL forward Tyler Pitlick, all for the services of Tyler Toffoli for Calgary’s playoff run. It’s the first time the Habs go into the draft with two first-rounders since 2007., and the third time we’ve made a pick for
