Montreal Canadiens

Juraj Slafkovsky received some good and bad news when he showed up at practice on Monday.

The top line of Nick Suzuki, Kirby Dach & Cole Caufield has been dominant, and the numbers suggest it’s sustainable. But the rest of the lineup is failing to provide secondary scoring.

The Montreal Canadiens announced Rem Pitlick would not participate in practice and would be placed on waivers

With Josh Anderson suspended and Evgenii Dadonov about to come off IR, the Montreal Canadiens might need Gary Bettman‘s help to buy some time and avoid using waivers.
