This offseason things changed in Montreal, no longer was Montreal an undesirable location for free agents as general manager Marc Bergevin was able to make some significant moves.
Bergevin was able to trade for and sign Josh Anderson, Joel Edmundson and Jake Allen to extensions.
He was also able to lure Tyler Toffoli to Montreal along with Alexander Romanov.
It seems things have changed and now homegrown talent might even be wanting to come play for the Canadiens.
While speaking to Louis Jean, Florida Panthers forward Jonathan Huberdeau openly stated that he'd love to play for the Canadiens.
“Of course you're wondering if you're going to be able to play for Montreal. It's a beautiful city and that's where I come from. It has always been a dream to play for Montreal, ”
He admits he'd like to try and accomplish some goals in Florida before moving on.
“But for now, I'm trying not to think about it. I'm in Florida and having fun there. I would really like to participate in a championship in Florida before maybe going to Montreal. ”
Huberdeau is signed through the 2022-23 season with a $5.9million AAV on a contract that carries a full no movement clause.
