Top Charles Hudon News

  • Avalanche's Charles Hudon: Earns promotion

    Hudon was recalled from AHL Colorado on Sunday.

    The 28-year-old was likely promoted as insurance in case Arturri Lehkonen (upper body) is forced to miss any time. Hudon has 16 points in 20 AHL games this season and last appeared in an NHL contest during the 2019-20 campaign.

  • Avalanche's Charles Hudon: Lights lamp twice

    Hudon scored two goals on three shots for AHL Colorado in Friday's win over Calgary.

    Hudon has four goals and seven points through four games for the Eagles. The 28-year-old forward has logged NHL experience in the Canadiens organization and could be a plug-and-play option for the Avalanche, who have lacked scoring depth thus far.

  • Avalanche's Charles Hudon: Signs one-year deal

    Hudon signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Avalanche on Wednesday.

    Hudon hasn't appeared in an NHL contest since 2019-20, so look for him to spend the entirety of the 2022-23 campaign with AHL Colorado. He racked up 30 goals and 57 points through 66 appearances with AHL Syracuse last season.

  • Lightning's Charles Hudon: Back to minors

    Hudon was demoted from the taxi squad to AHL Syracuse on Sunday, Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports.

    Hudon has tallied 11 goals and 22 points at the AHL level this season. He hasn't played in an NHL game since the 2019-20 campaign.

  • Lightning's Charles Hudon: Recalled to taxi squad

    Hudon was elevated from AHL Syracuse to the taxi squad Tuesday, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.

    Hudon was claimed off waivers by Tampa Bay on Oct. 4. The 27-year-old has tallied 22 points over 26 appearances with AHL Syracuse this season, finishing five games with multiple points. The Quebec native has yet to make his Lightning debut.

  • Lightning's Charles Hudon: Clears waivers and off to AHL

    Hudon cleared waivers Monday and will report to AHL Syracuse, reports Joe Smith of The Athletic.

    Hudon is a 27-year-old journeyman winger with 125 NHL games on his resume. He spent last season with Lausanne HC in the top Swiss league and delivered 32 points in 33 games but was pushed to the minors this season by some emerging younger players. Hudon will be near the top of the call-up list for the Bolts this season if there's ever a hole in the bottom six, but that doesn't mean he's fantasy-worthy.

  • Lightning's Charles Hudon: Waived Sunday

    Hudon was placed on waivers Sunday, CBS Sports reports.

    Hudon racked up 15 goals and 32 points in Switzerland last season. He last appeared in the NHL during the 2019-20 campaign, tallying two points in 15 games with Montreal. He could be recalled in case of injury but should spend most of the year in the minors.

  • Lightning's Charles Hudon: Returning to North America

    Hudon signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Lightning on Wednesday.

    Hudon failed to reach an agreement on a contract with the Canadiens last year, so he spent the season with Lausanne of the Swiss National League. There, he produced 32 points in 33 contests, which was enough to interest the Lightning in signing him as organizational forward depth.

  • Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Won't attend training camp

    Hudon's contract with Lausanne HC of the Swiss National League doesn't have an out clause, so he won't be able to attend Montreal's training camp, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Hudon, a restricted free agent, remains without an NHL contract for the 2020-21 campaign, but the Canadiens still have until Feb. 11 to sign him to a new deal, although nothing is imminent at this time. Either way, the 26-year-old winger has only picked up seven points in 47 games with the Habs over the past two seasons, so fantasy managers don't need to monitor his situation.

  • Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Loaned to Swiss club

    Hudon has been loaned to Lausanne HC of the Swiss National League.

    Hudon spent most of his time in the AHL last season, racking up 27 goals and eight helpers in 46 contests, but he also appeared in 15 games with the Canadiens, picking up two points over that span. He'll be recalled ahead of training camp, but don't expect him to make any waves in the NHL next season.

  • Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Scores first of season

    Hudon scored a goal on two shots and added three hits in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Islanders.

    Hudon, who's spent most of the year at AHL Laval, pocketed his first NHL goal of the season. He was called up recently after Montreal jettisoned players at the trade deadline and could have a home on the roster, albeit on the fourth line, as injuries pile up at forward. The injured Jonathan Drouin (ankle) was joined by Tomas Tatar, who left Tuesday's game after just 2:45 of ice time with an upper-body injury.

  • Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Skates on fourth line

    Hudon had four hits over 11:42 of ice time in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Rangers.

    Hudon was called up earlier in the day as a replacement for Jonathan Drouin (ankle) and skated on the fourth line. He has one assist, 14 shots and 19 hits in 10 games this season while with the parent club. It's unclear how long Drouin will be sidelined.

  • Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Recalled from minors

    Hudon was promoted from AHL Laval on Thursday.

    After logging 72 games for the Habs in 2017-18, Hudon has appeared in just 41 contests over the last two seasons. In his nine outings this year, the winger has registered one helper, 14 shots and 15 hits while averaging just 9:44 of ice time. Given the team used an emergency recall, it could be dealing with an injury among the forward group, which would force Hudon into action versus the Rangers on Thursday.

  • Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Not coming back to NHL now

    Hudon will remain at AHL Laval after the Canadiens called up Riley Barbour over the weekend, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports.

    Barbour will slot in on the fourth line with Nate Thompson and Matthew Peca on Tuesday against the Penguins. Hudon is Laval's leading goal scorer with nine, but his latest attempt to nail down a full-time job in the NHL ends after nine games and one point.

  • Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Sent down in likely paper move

    Hudon was demoted to AHL Laval on Saturday, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports.

    The Canadiens have been sending Hudon down on off days to preserve cap space, so expect him to be recalled ahead of the team's next game Tuesday in Pittsburgh, as Montreal only has 11 healthy forwards on the roster.

  • Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Healthy scratch Tuesday

    Hudon was not in the active lineup for Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Islanders.

    Hudon had appeared in eight straight games -- all Montreal losses -- before Tuesday's healthy scratch. He certainly was not the reason for the Canadiens' eight-game losing streak, but he accomplished little during his time in the active lineup. Matthew Peca was called up from AHL Laval earlier in the day and took Hudon's spot.

  • Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Recalled from minors

    Hudon was promoted from AHL Laval and is back up with the Habs, per the NHL media site.

    Hudon's brief demotion was likely a paper transaction, as the team never officially announced the move. The Quebec native should be a near lock for a spot in the lineup while Paul Byron (knee) and Jonathan Drouin (wrist) remain on the shelf.

  • Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Sent to AHL affiliate

    The Canadiens assigned Hudon to AHL Laval on Sunday, TSN reports.

    Hudon notched his first point of the season Saturday night against the Rangers. Moving Hudon down leaves only 11 healthy forwards on Montreal's roster, so they'll likely need to recall another player before Tuesday's divisional showdown against the Bruins.

  • Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Has assist, but minus-3 in loss

    Hudon had one assist, one shot and finished minus-3 in Saturday's 6-5 loss to the Rangers.

    Hudon moved up to the third line for the game and had a season-high 12:49 of ice time, which included 3:52 on the second power-play unit. Other than his assist Saturday, Hudon has not moved the needle much in four games with Montreal this season.

  • Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Practices on power play

    Hudon skated on the third line and the top power-play unit during Friday's practice, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

    Hudon, who has spent the last week shuttling between the NHL and AHL Laval, was on the Canadiens' fourth line but will receive a significant promotion for Saturday's game against the Rangers. In his three games with Montreal, Hudon has averaged a minuscule 9:20 of ice time with a total of 52 seconds on the power play.
