Montreal Canadiens forward Paul Byron

Montreal Canadiens

The Montreal Canadiens set a franchise record by using five rookie defencemen in their matchup against the Tampa Bay Lightning: Justin Barron, Arber Xhekaj, Johnathan Kovacevic, Jordan Harris and Kaiden Guhle.

Prospect Filip Mesar scored his first goal at the World Junior Championship in Slovakia’s big win over the United States. Lane Hutson finished the game with one assist.

The NHL’s holiday roster freeze has been lifted, allowing the Habs to make some much-needed roster adjustments.

The Canadiens gave a medical update concerning five injured veteran players. It was a mixed bag of news, with some very encouraging developments and a few unfortunate results.

Martin St-Louis was outcoached by a significant margin in Wednesday night’s loss to the Lightning, making a few unforced errors that cost his team a chance to win the game.
