Habs News

  • Check out the latest edition of the Habs Mailbag, featuring answers about Adam Engstrom’s potential, the impact the Béliveaus continue to make in Montreal, the Alexis Lafreniere trade situation, the potential defensive lineup, how hockey has become unaffordable for families, and much more. [Habs Mailbag: Prospect Potential, Defence, Lafreniere, Beliveau]
  • Don’t look now, but Montreal Canadiens forward Cole Caufield is looking rather swole. He hasn’t quite qualified for the Bergevin Bicep club, but it’s clear that the 22-year-old sniper is working on adding mass to his frame this summer. It’s also encouraging to see him back in action, despite not holding a hockey stick. A motivated Cole Caufield should be a dangerous Cole Caufield next season.

  • For the second straight Monday in a row, the Boston Bruins have locked up some restricted free agents. This Monday, defensemen Alec Regula, Reilly Walsh, and goaltender Michael DiPietro have signed one-year, two-way contracts, each carrying a $775,000 cap hit. [Boston Bruins]
  • It isn’t often that a 25-year-old forward who played only 46 games and scored just five goals could be such an integral piece to a team’s offseason, yet that is where we might find Pittsburgh Penguins restricted free agent Drew O’Connor. [Pittsburgh Penguins]
  • Hockey coaches like to say that if you give them a player who can skate like the wind they can teach him the rest of the game. The Detroit Red Wings may have had that kind of thinking in mind when they chose German Kevin Bicker with the 147th pick in the 2023 NHL draft. [Detroit Red Wings]
  • The Avalanche announced they had signed Colton to a 4-year contract, locking up the 26-year-old until 2027 and avoiding arbitration. It is confirmed to be a $16 million deal, with a yearly cap hit of $4 million. [Colorado Avalanche]
  • Earlier in the offseason, Philadelphia Flyers forward Travis Konecny was the subject of trade rumours. The Hockey Writers website suggested yesterday that the Ottawa Senators should take a run at trading for Konecny.[Philadelphia Flyers]
  • Win the Stanley Cup and go for a ride on a 175-foot yacht in Miami. Sound nice? That is exactly what Ivan Barbashev did on Sunday. [Vegas Golden Knights]
