The Montreal Canadiens acquired forward Alex Newhook from the Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday in exchange for a first- and second-round pick in the 2023 NHL draft and defenseman Gianni Fairbrother.

The Avalanche picked up the 31st and 37th picks in the draft, which begins Wednesday in Nashville, Tennessee. Colorado already had the 27th selection in the first round.

Newhook, 22, recorded 30 points (14 goals, 16 assists) while playing in all 82 games last season with Colorado. The Newfoundland native has totaled 66 points (27 goals, 39 assists) in 159 career games since being selected by the Avalanche with the 16th overall pick of the 2019 NHL draft.

Fairbrother, 22, sat out all of last season with a knee injury. The Vancouver, British Columbia, native has yet to make his NHL debut since being selected by the Canadiens in the third round (77th overall) of the 2019 NHL draft.
