It's safe to say David Reinbacher was impressed by fellow defensive prospect Lane Hutson after the pair skated together at the Montreal Canadiens' development camp.

"You get the puck, skate it out a little bit, then you give it to him and just start watching," Reinbacher told The Canadian Press. "He's probably the next Cale Makar."

Reinbacher was the fifth overall pick at last week's draft, joining Hutson near the top of Montreal's prospect pool. Hutson was a second-round pick in 2022, and he's coming off an impressive season in which he posted 48 points in 39 games with Boston University. He also represented the United States at the world juniors and World Championship.
