HABS PROSPECT LANE HUTSON INTERVIEWED WITH AN 'ORIGINAL 6' RIVAL MULTIPLE TIMES BEFORE DRAFT

DEC 5, 2022  (11H25)      COOPER GODIN
Montreal Canadiens prospect Lane Hutson is having one of the best draft+1 years we've seen for a defenceman in the NCAA in the last 25 years or so.

After a three assist night on Friday, Hutson now has 17 points (six goals , 11 assists) in 14 games and is doing so while playing on the second d-pairing as well as the second powerplay unit for Boston University

Because he's having such a strong season, Hutson's drawing comparison to a pair of former NCAA defencemen, Quinn Hughes and Adam Fox, not only for similar play style, but because Hutson's points-per-game in his draft+1 year is higher than Hughes and Fox.

If Hutson ends up being like Hughes or Fox at the NHL level, then the Canadiens can count their stars, because according to Lane's dad, Rob, one of Montreal's 'Original 6' rivals interviewed his son multiple times and he thought he was going to be drafted by them.


"To be honest, we thought it was going to be Toronto the first day," shared Mr. Hutson. "They had interviewed him multiple times before."

It's safe to say that Montreal Canadiens fans are happy that the Maple Leafs ended up trading their first round pick, rather than keeping it and selecting Hutson.

Canadiens fans won't have to wait long before seeing the 18-year-old play in Canada and on national TV, as it's widely expected he'll be named to the United States' roster for the 2023 World Junior Hockey Championship.
