Habs Daily: Top 3 Options For A Call Up, Prospect Highlights



Montreal Canadiens prospect Jayden Struble

Our daily roundup of all the latest Montreal Canadiens stories, news, events, and highlights.

Habs News

  • The Montreal Canadiens don’t necessarily need to call up a player, yet. But as we all know, injuries are inevitable, and eventually they’ll be looking to their AHL affiliate, the Laval Rocket, for reinforcements. Here are three players that could be recalled without necessarily disrupting anyone’s development. [Canadiens Prospects Most Likely To Receive Call-Up From AHL]
  • After a relatively slow start to the year, Owen Beck has found his rhythm in the OHL. Beck only registered one point in his first six games with the Peterborough Petes this season, but has since earned eight points in his last five outings, including this goal against the Oshawa Generals on Thursday night.

  • Habs prospect Luke Tuch is heating up. He’s much older than most of his teammates, which means a certain level of offence is expected, and it doesn’t hurt to play on a line with Macklin Celebrini, but it’s worth noting that Tuch is currently doubling his production from last season, with eight points in seven games.
  • That’s it for Habs prospect highlights from Boston. Okay, okay, fine, here, you can have another Lane Hutson highlight. As a treat.

  • It’s too early to celebrate, but it seems that Rafael Harvey-Pinard’s injury isn’t as serious as originally anticipated. For now, the Canadiens are calling it a day-to-day issue. [Canadiens]
  • There’s a clear discrepancy when evaluating the offence from the various lines this season. Let’s just say that the third line is doing more than its fair share when it comes to scoring. The second line, on the other hand, not so much.

  • ICYMI: Jacob Fowler was named the goaltender of the month in Hockey East.

  • The Laval Rocket snatched victory from the jaws of defeat, scoring four goals in the third period to complete the comeback against the Toronto Marlies.

  • Some unfortunate news from New Jersey: The NHL’s leading scorer, Jack Hughes, had to leave the game on Thursday due to an injury that he picked up in the first period.   [New Jersey Devils]
  • Pittsburgh Penguins head coach Mike Sullivan is not satisfied with his team’s performances of late, and he made it known. [Pittsburgh Penguins]
  • Jumbo Joe has retired, but as we all know, athletes like to stay busy, which leads us to ask what’s next for the former Sharks captain? [San Jose Sharks]
