Canada's Shane Wright (15) battles Austria's Tobias Sablattnig during a World Junior Hockey Championship game in December.

Scouts have ranked the Kingston Frontenacs centre as the top prospect for the past year, but general manager Kent Hughes said Tuesday there’s a lot of work to be done before the Canadiens finalize their decision.

The Canadiens will abide by the tried-and-true rule that says a team will select the best player available.

“You always go with your evaluation first and if there’s a player we feel is the best player available in the draft, then that’s the player we’re going to with. If there are different shades of the same colour in our opinion, could we value one because of a positional need, yeah certainly. But we’re not at that point yet so I can’t really tell you that’s the case where we can see multiple players in the same ballpark.”
