It’s been a tough sophomore season for Montreal Canadiens forward Charles Hudon. After bursting onto the scene in 2017-18 with 10 goals and 30 points in his rookie campaign, Hudon has just three goals and five points in 30 games this season. Yikes.
Hudon has struggled to find a regular spot in the lineup under head coach Claude Julien and… to be frank, it’s time for a fresh start.
According to a report from Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman, Habs general manager Marc Bergevin has been seeking a trade partner for Hudon and is reportedly seeking a mid-round pick in exchange.

Another player who could get a fresh start is Montreal’s Charles Hudon. The Canadiens have been looking for a mid-round pick in exchange. GM Marc Bergevin is re-shaping his fourth line, which has drawn coach Claude Julien’s ire.
There’s reason to believe that the 24 year old Hudon can kickstart his offence with a new opportunity, but who out there is willing to take a chance on him? With his lack of production this season it’s tough to see a team picking him up for a top six role and he’s not exactly the fourth line grinding type either. Having said that, a Stanley Cup contender like the Washington Capitals, Pittsburgh Penguins, Nashville Predators and Calgary Flames could certainly use some depth on the wing, as could a team in a playoff push like the Minnesota Wild or Philadelphia Flyers.
