HF: Being a Montreal Canadiens draft pick, it must feel pretty good having such a storied franchise holding your NHL rights.

DK: Definitely. They're a great organization and I couldn't be happier having been drafted by Montreal. I have a pretty good relationship with them and they have such great fan support too. It's nice being a kid from Minnesota, where everyone loves hockey and knowing that if I do play in Montreal some day that it'll be the same, if not better because they (Montreal) probably have the craziest fans in the NHL. I know that, so it's a pretty good feeling.
That's awesome to hear and I'm pretty sure Kristo reads HF. I think it's been mentioned in the past too.

nice article.

Kristo seems like he is on the right path. Also he is good buddy's with Leblanc and both may play in Hamilton at the same time and make the Habs in the same time frame.

Hope he keeps developing cause he is very fast and could develop into a pretty good top 6 winger.

Impressive interview! Sounds like Kristo knows he can't rely on his offense alone to get him to the NHL.

I'm guessing players aren't getting QMJHL-like numbers in NCAA hockey. It's all relative to the league I suppose.

Defensive small fast top 6 forward. Looks like a good fit for the team. Martin is staying for a long time. The team is built for his defensive style. I don't mind. I think we have a brighter future than with the other team-roster from the 2000s.

True, it's a tougher league to score in, but a bunch of Kristo's teammates are well ahead of him. That's part of why I find his focus on even strength play and defensive responsibility in the interview to be positive. If he can become a useful player in the NHL, it likely won't be as a top six scorer or power play presence.

Exactly, let's hope he becomes that two-way threat

Well college players avering near a ppg is considered a success and he did have an awful start think he went 20 plus games without a goal.

Yes but he was also 3rd in scoring last season on UND, this year the upper-classmen got hot while he struggled so he tended to play with less ice time and fewer responsibilites until he turned it on in the 2nd half of the season.

I think Kristo's skill set would say he should be developed as a Top-6 player.

There is more to the game of hockey then scoring goals and picking up points. If he is trying to improve his all around game and does while still posting close to a point per game then his season can indeed be terrific.

Can someone tack on the "Prospect Info" tag on the thread title?

Good stuff, but I think people overhyped him. An all-around better (except possibly slower acceleration) Pyatt is where I see him.

Done


Nice to hear, I really hope he becomes an NHLer, from the past WJC that I saw him play he looked pretty good and a type of player the Habs love. Hope to see him him one day with the CH on

Good post... I tend to aggree. Somewhat begrudgingly. I like a different style of play but I love the Habs and I love winning more.

I would also point out that this is Habs hockey. It always bugged me when people site the Devils/LouLam as the origin for this style of play. The Habs brought this to the NHL in the 80's. It was our staple. Scored us a couple of Cups, and a trip to the finals that no one [outside of Mtl] thought we were good enough to win.

So, needless to say I support the direction

He reads HF? Don't worry Kristo I never put you in a single trade proposal when you were slumping

Seriously though I have but I've always thought he could potentially be a great player for us regardless. Problem with our team, aside from Weber, Leblanc, Tinordi, Kristo, there isn't much non-NHL trade bait.
