Kaiden Guhle (born January 18, 2002) is a Canadian junior ice hockey defenceman currently playing for the Prince Albert Raiders of the Western Hockey League (WHL) as a prospect to the Montreal Canadiens of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was drafted 16th overall by the Montreal Canadiens in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft.

Early life

Guhle was born on January 18, 2002, in Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada[1] to parents Carrianne and Mark.[2] He was born into an athletic family; his mother was a figure skater, his father played basketball, and his older brother Brendan Guhle is a professional ice hockey player. As a result, the Guhle brothers began power skating at a young age.[3]

Playing career

Guhle was selected with the first overall pick in the 2017 WHL draft by the Prince Albert Raiders. During the 2019-20 season, he had 40 points in 64 games.[1]

On October 6, 2020, Guhle was selected by the Montreal Canadiens in the first round, 16th overall, at the 2020 NHL Entry Draft. He was later signed to a three-year, entry-level contract with the Canadiens on October 21, 2020, which included bonuses to a maximum of $420,000 in each season.[4] However, in November he was loaned to the Brooks Bandits of the Alberta Junior Hockey League until December 20.[5]
