Latest on the Senators, Canadiens, Maple Leafs and Jets.

OTTAWA CITIZEN: Senators GM Bryan Murray is willing to move up or down in the first round of next weekend’s NHL entry draft. He currently holds the fifteenth overall selection. Murray also suggested he’d consider moving that pick for an established player.

OTTAWA SUN: Murray acknowledged contract talks have begun with defenseman Erik Karlsson but there’s no rush to get a deal done. Karlsson is a restricted free agent and eligible to receive an offer sheet from a rival team, but it’s believed the Senators would match any offer for the talented young blueliner.

RDS.CA: The Montreal Canadiens are expected to announce the hiring of Saint John Sea Dogs coach Gerard Gallant as an assistant coach. Gallant coached the Sea Dogs to the Memorial Cup last season, and is a former head coach of the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Kovalev pines for Canadiens.

MONTREAL GAZETTE: Former Hab Alex Kovalev said he’d love to return to the Canadiens.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: The Gallant hire is a good one for the Canadiens. As for Kovalev, he’d be better off wishing for a unicorn, as that is more likely to be granted than returning to the Habs as a player.

TORONTO SUN: The Maple Leafs are expected to be among the front-runners for the services of Anaheim Ducks prospect defenseman Justin Schultz, who could become a UFA in a couple of weeks.

WINNIPEG SUN: The Jets have hired former Montreal Canadiens assistant coach Perry Pearn as their new assistant coach. Pearn was also an assistant coach 17 years ago with the original version of the Jets.

    I think the unicorn is going to happen before any team takes a change on Kovalev. Your days are over bud, you’ve made your money, now go retire with some style.

    Spezza or Turris feeding him the puck would be sick.
