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

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
