The Montreal Canadiens are preparing for the 2019 NHL Draft and like last year they're expected to hold their own private European combine. 

Last year their private combine helped them identify draft day steals like Jesse Ylonen and Alexander Romanov.

Danslescoulisses.com reports today that Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin was spotted in Germany. 

It seems that the Canadiens could be holding their combine there or it's feasible that Bergevin is there to talk to one specific prospect. 

German defenseman Moritz Seider is expected to be drafted around the #15 range and could end up in the Habs' lap. 

The 18 year old stands 6'4" and weighs in at 207lbs and registered two goals in five games at the IIHF World Championships playing against NHLers. 

The German has the pedigree of a winner and loves to compete however is signed in Germany until the 2021 season. 

He's one of the few players that was interviewed by all 31 teams at this year's NHL Draft Combine.
