Montreal Canadiens add size and toughness with 1st rounder Mike McCarron

NEWARK, N.J. - The Montreal Canadiens picked hulking winger Mike McCarron 25th overall in the first round of the NHL draft.

McCarron is listed at six-foot-five, 228 pounds and would provide the Canadiens with much-needed size up front.

The Michigan native played with the U.S. National Team Development Program, with whom he scored 11 goals and had 18 assists in 49 games last season.

The Canadiens have another three choices in the second round and hold six picks among the first 86 selections.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.

— Bryan Trottier on making his return to coaching as an assistant with the Sabres
