Montreal Canadiens

Fresh off a two-goal performance against the Toronto Maple Leafs, sniper Cole Caufield is quickly leaving last year’s early-season struggles behind.

The Montreal Canadiens’ current cap situation may seem a little convoluted after a flurry of roster moves, so here’s a breakdown of how much cap space the Habs currently have.

The Montreal Canadiens announced that newly-acquired defenceman Mike Matheson was placed on the injured list, resulting in the call-up of Corey Schueneman from their AHL affiliate, the Laval Rocket.

Carey Price made an appearance at the Montreal Canadiens season opener and was met with a deafening ovation, and he returned the favour in kind by thanking fans on social media the next morning.
