It was a really tough year for Montreal Canadiens' prospect Charles Hudon.

Hudon was basically an afterthought last season and only cracked the lineup for 32 NHL games where he registered just five points which included three goals.
When the season was done, many expected it to be the last Hudon will have played in Montreal, but here we are halfway through August and Hudon has a new contract and is still a member of the Canadiens.
While hosting his annual golf tournament in Chicoutimi, Hudon spoke to TVA Sports and made some pretty interesting revelations.
"I have not spoken to Marc (Bergevin) since the beginning of the summer," said Hudon. "It was my agent who was in communication with him. I concentrate on doing the right things. We will see for the future. I just want to play hockey. "
Last year was tough for Hudon especially since he watched from the press box.
"When you sit in the press box for 25 games, you ask yourself questions about your future. My goal was to stay and to have a new contract in my pocket for the good of my family. Now that it's done, I can think of something else and focus on my training for the camp. We'll see what happens next. "
