Charles Simard-Hudon (born June 23, 1994) is a Canadian professional ice hockey Left Wing currently playing with the Montreal Canadiens of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was drafted 122nd overall by the Canadiens in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing career

Hudon played his amateur midget hockey within his native Quebec with the Saint-Eustache Vikings of the QMAAA. He was drafted to the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, 6th overall by the Chicoutimi Saguenéens. Following two prolific seasons in the QMJHL he was selected in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft by the Montreal Canadiens.

On May 5, 2013, Hudon was signed to a three-year entry-level contract with the Montreal Canadiens.[1] During his last junior season in 2013–14, continuing as the Saguenéens captain, Hudon lead the offense with 41 points in 33 games before he was traded to Baie-Comeau Drakkar. He helped Drakkar to the President Cup Finals, co-leading the team in goals with 10 and finishing third amongst points with 21.

In his first full professional season in 2014–15, Hudon was assigned to the Canadiens AHL affiliate, the Hamilton Bulldogs. Hudon quickly assumed a top-line scoring role and recorded a spectacular rookie season with 57 points in 75 games. Finishing second amongst the Bulldogs in scoring and second amongst rookie's league-wide, Hudon was selected to the AHL All-Rookie Team.[2] Hudon was also selected to the AHL All-Star Game, posting 3 goals and an assist to earn co-MVP honors.[3]

In the following 2015–16 season, Hudon was initially re-assigned to new AHL affiliate, the St. John's IceCaps. On December 8, 2015, he received his first NHL recall by the Montreal Canadiens. He made his NHL debut and recorded his first NHL point with an assist in a 3–2 defeat to the Detroit Red Wings on December 10, 2015.[4] He posted another assist in his second game before he was returned to the IceCaps on December 18, 2015.

During the 2017–18 season, Hudon recorded his first two career NHL goals in an 8–3 win over the Ottawa Senators on October 30.[5] In his first season of regular NHL action, he ultimately generated 23 primary points (10 goals and 13 primary assists) on a team that struggled for offensive consistency.[6]
