Top Canadiens News

  • Canadiens' Joel Edmundson: Gets helper in win

    Edmundson produced an assist, six blocked shots and two PIM in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Kraken.

    Edmundson ended a four-game point drought with his helper. The 29-year-old blueliner is up to a goal, two assists, 22 shots on net, 54 blocked shots, 20 hits, 21 PIM and a minus-6 rating through 16 contests. He continues to serve as a defensive presence in the Canadiens' top four, so he won't be particularly useful for fantasy managers.

  • Canadiens' Jake Evans: Assists in back-to-back games

    Evans produced an assist and blocked two shots in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Kraken.

    As expected, Evans picked up extra ice time to make up for Sean Monahan (lower body) being out of the lineup. Evans saw a season-high 16:29 of ice time and picked up an assist for his second straight game. In that stretch, he's doubled his season point total to four helpers in 26 contests. He also sports a minus-9 rating, 24 shots on net, 22 blocked shots and nine PIM in a bottom-six role.

  • Canadiens' Christian Dvorak: Collects assist in win

    Dvorak produced an assist and two shots on goal in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Kraken.

    Dvorak set up Josh Anderson on the game-winning goal at 2:12 of the second period. That's points in consecutive games for Dvorak, who snapped a six-game dry spell Monday in Vancouver with a goal. He's up to five tallies, six helpers, 35 shots, 27 blocked shots and an even plus-minus rating in 26 contests.

  • Canadiens' Juraj Slafkovsky: Produces helper

    Slafkovsky registered an assist in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Kraken.

    Slafkovsky helped out on Josh Anderson's game-winning marker early in the second period. Over the last seven games, Slafkovsky has a goal and three assists -- it looks like he's getting more comfortable while seeing third-line minutes. The rookie winger is up to eight points, 25 shots, 19 hits, 23 PIM and a minus-1 rating through 21 outings.

  • Canadiens' Mike Matheson: Slides another assist

    Matheson posted an assist, two blocked shots and two PIM in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Kraken.

    Matheson set up Johnny Kovacevic on the opening goal at 12:56 of the first period. With four helpers in his last three games, Matheson is taking to a top-pairing role quite well. The defenseman has a goal, four assists, 21 shots on net, 10 hits, nine blocked shots and a minus-4 rating through nine outings.

  • Canadiens' Kirby Dach: Picks up helper Tuesday

    Dach registered an assist and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Kraken.

    Dach helped out on a Johnny Kovacevic goal in the first period. The helper was Dach's second in three games, but he's now gone 12 contests without a goal. The 21-year-old remains in a top-line role, and he's up to four tallies, 15 helpers, 44 shots on net, 14 PIM and an even plus-minus rating through 26 appearances.

  • Canadiens' Nick Suzuki: Delivers assist Tuesday

    Suzuki posted an assist, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Kraken.

    Suzuki set up a Cole Caufield goal in the second period. During a four-game point streak, Suzuki has two goals and three assists. The 23-year-old center is up to 29 points (eight on the power play), 52 shots on net and a plus-1 rating through 26 appearances.

  • Canadiens' Johnny Kovacevic: Pots first NHL goal

    Kovacevic scored a goal on two shots and blocked two shots in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Kraken.

    Kovacevic's first NHL tally opened the scoring at 12:56 of the first period. He wouldn't be the only player in the game to achieve that milestone, as Shane Wright responded less than three minutes later. Kovacevic now has a goal, three assists, 33 shots on net, a plus-5 rating, 26 hits and 24 blocked shots in 23 appearances this season. He'll likely continue to see bottom-four minutes, though it seems he's mostly solidified a place in the lineup.

  • Canadiens' Rem Pitlick: Gets on scoresheet Tuesday

    Pitlick scored a goal in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Kraken.

    Pitlick has played in the last three games, though he's been limited to fourth-line minutes. He got his first point of the year with a second-period tally. The 25-year-old hasn't done much else with just four shots on goal, eight PIM, a minus-2 rating, three hits and three blocked shots in 10 appearances. Compared to his 37 points in 66 outings last year, this has been a disappointing stretch for Pitlick.

  • Canadiens' Josh Anderson: Tallies again Tuesday

    Anderson scored a goal on three shots and added three hits in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Kraken.

    Anderson's goal came seven seconds after a Cole Caufield goal. That quick burst of offense was ultimately enough for the Canadiens to get the win, with Anderson's goal standing as the game-winner. He's up to seven tallies, nine points, 54 shots on net, 50 hits, 23 PIM and a minus-1 rating through 24 outings.

  • Canadiens' Cole Caufield: Stays warm with goal

    Caufield scored a goal on two shots and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Kraken.

    Caufield tallied in the second period for his third goal in the last four games. The winger is up to 15 markers, 24 points, 92 shots on net and a minus-2 rating through 26 contests overall. His strong offense makes him a fixture on the Canadiens' top line.

  • Canadiens' Jake Allen: Steady in Tuesday's win

    Allen stopped 31 of 33 shots in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Kraken.

    Allen has now alternated wins and losses over his last four starts. This was a solid one, as the Kraken outshot the Canadiens 33-16, with Allen's goaltending being a difference-maker. He's up to 8-9-0 with a 3.42 GAA and an .895 save percentage through 17 outings. The 32-year-old should continue to see most of the starts for Montreal, though he's been relatively inconsistent compared to many primary starters.

  • Canadiens' Jake Allen: Tending twine in Seattle

    Allen will guard the road goal versus the Kraken on Tuesday.

    Allen will get the second half of a back-to-back after Sam Montembeault melted down in Monday's overtime loss to the Canucks. Allen is 2-4-0 with 24 goals allowed in his last six games, so he could be a risky option against a Kraken team that has had little trouble filling the net lately.

  • Canadiens' Sean Monahan: Unavailable Tuesday

    Monahan (lower body) will not play Tuesday in Seattle.

    Monahan was hurt Monday in Vancouver, and he'll be evaluated again upon the Canadiens' return home following their road trip. They don't play again until Saturday, so if Monahan's injury is a minor one, he may not need to miss more than one game. The Canadiens may opt for 11 forwards and seven defensemen in their lineup Tuesday.

  • Canadiens' David Savard: Not playing Tuesday

    Savard (upper body) won't play Tuesday against Seattle.

    Savard also wasn't available for Monday's matchup with Vancouver. He is listed as day-to-day.

  • Canadiens' Jake Evans: Nabs helper in overtime loss

    Evans produced an assist in Monday's 7-6 overtime loss to the Canucks.

    Evans hasn't been able to do much on offense this season with just three assists in 25 outings. Two of those helpers have come in the last six games, but his bottom-six role doesn't lead to many good scoring chances. The 26-year-old could get a boost in usage if Sean Monahan (undisclosed) is forced to miss time after exiting Monday's game. Still, even more playing time is unlikely to make Evans worth a look in most fantasy formats.

  • Canadiens' Joel Armia: Plucks apple Monday

    Armia notched an assist, two hits, two shots on goal and two PIM in Monday's 7-6 overtime loss to the Canucks.

    Armia had no points in his first 12 outings of the season, but he's now logged assists in consecutive games. He helped out on a Christian Dvorak tally in the third period Monday. Armia typically adds a little offense with a physical playing style -- he had 14 points and 104 hits in 60 games last year. He often struggles to stay healthy. With two assists, 29 shots on net, six hits, nine blocked shots and a minus-4 rating in 14 outings this season, there are more productive depth wingers available on most waiver wires.
