Habs News

  • Harvard Crimson captain Henry Thrun has advised the Anaheim Ducks he will not sign a contract following the conclusion of his NCAA career. Given Kent Hughes’ background, the interesting prospect should be very familiar to Canadiens management.
  • Habs fans submitted proposals for the upcoming trade deadline and we analyzed the results. Let’s just say it was a little more difficult than anticipated to put together a trade that works for two teams.
  • The Canadiens announced Joel Edmundson is progressing nicely, but centre Kirby Dach’s illness has become serious and is now considered a lower-body injury.
  • Consequently, the Canadiens claimed centre Chris Tierney off waivers from the Florida Panthers. Tierney has two goals and one assist in 19 games with the Panthers this season.
