Every morning I wake up and my brain tells me: "It's the end of April, you don't need a winter jacket." And like an idiot, I walk out of my apartment without checking the weather and I get hit in the face with -4°C temperatures.
I was willing to put up with it so far. But this morning I had enough, something has to be wrong. And would't you know it, I walked into the office this morning and was greeted with a nice weather alert.
It turns out there is cold air mass over Quebec and it's going to be sticking around for the next week. Temperatures are going to be well below the average and will even be below freezing at night ... F#@%!
To give you an idea of how bad things are, we should be enjoying a 15°C day at this time of the year. But instead we're sitting here hoping it doesn't snow in the next few days. Fingers crossed.
The Montreal Canadiens administration has been busy. In the span few days, it has had to pick players to protect from the Seattle Kraken expansion draft and take stock of all the team's long-term injuries. Now, the team must decide on 11 potential new players that could join them, as the National Hockey League (NHL) prepares for its 2021 draft on July 23.
With 11 possible picks in the upcoming NHL Draft, as well as the option to traed, the Habs have some big decisions to make about their future.
In the first round, the Habs have the 31st pick. While there are plenty of players to choose from, Sportsnet has predicted that the Habs will take Wyatt Johnston, a centre who plays junior hockey with the Windsor Spitfires.
TSN, meanwhile, believes that the Habs will go with Sasha Pastujov, a left-winger out of the U.S. National Team Development Program.
If you want to feel old, both of these players were born in 2003.
The first round of the NHL Draft airs at 8 p.m. EST on Sportsnet, Sportsnet NOW, and TVA Sports in French.
