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

When somebody goes out and is there to score goals, but is also there to make some big hits, fight, do all of those things, and he has a great mustache, it was great to see him get that hit and get everybody going.
