Montreal Canadiens

  • Montreal Canadiens prospect Filip Mesar has found another gear at the World Junior Championship, and the timing couldn’t be better for Slovakia.
  • Unfortunately the Canadiens will have to do without rookie defencemen Kaiden Guhle in their matchup against the Capitals. He did not attend practice following a collision with Sasha Barkov that left him clutching his leg.
  • While the Canadiens continue to slump during a very difficult December, they are trending toward a very good Draft pick at the 2023 Draft, especially when you consider their current point pace, underlying numbers, and strength of schedule.
  • Thanks to an excellent showing at the World Junior Championship, Canadiens prospect Joshua Roy leads the charge among Habs hopefuls. He’s currently third overall in tournament scoring.
