Wow thats a huge over estimation. For forwards here's what I think is the general consensus:

Locks:
Nugent-Hopkins
Huberdeau
Scheifele
Strome
Jenner

Close to Locks:
Rattie
Wilson
Ritchie
McNeil
Mackinnon

That's 10 of 13 forwards right there. I think Hudon will be in tough. In my estimation you're looking at 3-4 spots open with alot of capable talent to fill in. With his size I'm not too sure if Hudon will be able to handle a checking role, and among skilled players, you've got quite a bit more flash available.

I'd say hes 50/50 at best.
