Forward Charles Hudon flew to Switzerland where he plans to play next season with Lausanne HC.
According to information from the Swiss daily “Le Matin” revealed on Monday, Hudon left Montreal on Saturday afternoon, being greeted by several members of the club’s organization in Switzerland. However, no agreement has been finalized for the moment.
Fifth-round pick (122nd overall) in 2012, Hudon delivered his best performances in 2017-2018, the only season in which he was regularly part of the training. In 72 games, he had registered 10 goals and 20 assists for 30 points.
Last season, the Quebecer collected a goal and an assist in the National League, spending the majority of his time in the American Hockey League with the Laval Rocket.
In fact, at the time of the shutdown, he shared fifth place in the AHL with 27 goals in just 46 games.
In Lausanne, Hudon will join alumni of the Montreal Canadiens organization Mark Barberio and Tim Bozon. Swiss Toronto Maple Leafs forward Denis Malgin will also start the season with Lausanne. The team is led by Craig MacTavish.
