The Montreal Canadiens are busy on Day 2 of the 2020 NHL Entry Draft.

The team began their day by drafting Luke Tuch and Jan Mysak in the second round of the NHL Entry Draft. Tuch scored eight goals and 14 points in 19 games played for the United States Under-18 team this past season. Mysak scored 15 goals and 25 points in 22 games with the Hamilton Bulldogs of the Ontario Hockey League in 2019-20.

The Canadiens had a third second-rounder, but they traded it away to the Tampa Bay Lightning for a fourth-round choice in this year’s draft and a second-rounder in 2021.

Montreal didn’t pick in the third round after they traded that pick with Max Domi to Columbus for Josh Anderson Tuesday. Instead, they entered the fourth round with four picks. The team took Jack Smith, Blake Biondi and Sean Farrell, while trading away their 98th overall draft choice to San Jose for a third-rounder in 2021.

The Canadiens ended their day by drafting goalie Jakub Dobes in the fifth round and Russian forward Alexander Gordin in Round 6. Montreal traded their seventh-round pick to Chicago for a seventh-rounder in 2021.

General manager Marc Bergevin and his staff used their first-round draft choice on Kaiden Guhle, a physical defenceman from the Prince Albert Raiders of the Western Hockey League, yesterday.
