It's a big day! Kent Hughes meets the media on the sidelines of the Tyler Toffoli trade to Calgary.

However, one of the first questions he had to answer was about prospect Jordan Harris. We all know that he is a top prospect for the team and could end up on the free agency at the end of his season with Northeastern University in Boston.

The connections between Harris and the hockey men are numerous. Among others, Kent Hughes was his coach in the past and he currently plays with Hughes' and Martin St. Louis' sons.

So it's not as if the Huskies' captain is coming into an environment that is completely unknown to him.

In his media availability, the Canadiens' general manager confirmed that he started talking with the Harris clan a week ago. He stressed that it was essential to be able to present him with an overview of the plan for him. His place in the organization, the plan to develop him to his full potential and many other things.

Remember that with the potential departures of Ben Chiarot and Jeff Petry, the Canadiens can't afford to lose such an important defensive prospect and get nothing in return.
