Canadiens general manager Kent Hughes said it wasn't an easy decision to trade hard-working Arturri Lehkonen.

For perhaps the first time since Marc Bergevin nabbed Thomas Vanek ahead of the 2014 playoffs, the Habs had a deadline day that wasn’t universally panned. The work Hughes did in peddling Ben Chiarot well ahead of the deadline and then moving Brett Kulak, Artturi Lehkonen and Andrew Hammond for picks and prospects drew almost unanimous praise.

On the ice, the Canadiens kept battling despite the nightly losses to the Toronto War Room. Saturday night, Jake Allen stopped 49 shots to steal one from the hated Maple Leafs as he strengthened the case he can be a true No. 1 goalie should Hughes find a destination for Carey Price that satisfies all parties.

The high point for Hughes, however, may have been the signing of defenceman Jordan Harris now that his career as the men’s hockey captain at Northeastern is over. It’s conceivable Jeff Gorton even had that in mind when he hired Hughes, whose family connection and all-around approach made signing Harris much more likely.
