Grading The 2020 Draft Class

Normally, one of our traditions on the day after the draft is our draft grades.  However, with free agency coming so quickly after, I wanted to let the dust settle a bit before diving in.  With that in mind, having had some time to ponder each pick, here is the report card.

Day 2 of the 2020 Draft

The Habs were busy on the second day of the 2020 NHL Entry Draft, making seven more selections as well as three trades. As always, here are the details, stats, and scouting reports for each one.

Draft Options: Lukas Reichel

If the Canadiens are looking to shore up their wing position with the sixteenth pick in the draft, then Lukas Reichel is just the type of player they should target. Although he is a junior-aged player, he completed in the top German league against men last season and fared very well. His skating and hockey sense are both excellent and his versatility helps make him a safe choice.
