Habs News

  • Before we get to the NHL Trade Deadline content, it should be noted that Montreal Canadiens forward Joshua Roy certainly belongs in the NHL. He’s not just surviving, he’s leading the charge offensively and producing fantastic underlying numbers in the process. He was far and away the best player in the lineup against the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday night. [Montreal Canadiens Forward Joshua Roy Belongs In The NHL]



  • The Habs made a trade on Thursday, sending struggling prospect Jan Mysak to the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for Jacob Perreault. Both players failed to meet expectations, but there’s no doubt Canadiens general manager Kent Hughes acquired the best player in the trade. [Canadiens Add Interesting Project Via Trade With Ducks]
  • In most years it’s easy to establish whether it’s a buyer’s or seller’s market at the deadline, but this season it’s a little different. The price tags are shifting wildly, coming down to a case-by-case evaluation.  [Canadiens Head To NHL Trade Deadline Amid Shifting Market]


  • Top prospect Lane Hutson registered his 40th and 41st points of the season on Thursday night when his Boston University Terriers faced the Providence Friars. It was Hutson’s 11th multi-point effort of the campaign.

  • With the NHL trade deadline at 3 p.m. EST on Friday, many factors are at play for Nashville Predators general manager Barry Trotz. Beyond simply finding a match in terms of compensation, Trotz will also have to weigh salary-cap implications as it relates to player contracts. [Nashville Predators]

  • The Philadelphia Flyers acquired Ryan Johansen in the Sean Walker trade on Wednesday – a player who briefly played under Flyers head coach John Tortorella in 2015. Johansen has already been put on and passed through NHL waivers, banishing him to the AHL for the first time in over a decade. The 31-year-old doesn’t have the greatest history with Tortorella on the ice, but time heals all wounds, as they say. [Philadelphia Flyers]

  • It appears that former Hab Tyler Toffoli may be on the move again. The New Jersey Devils claimed they’re not shopping him, but he was also made a healthy scratch due to trade-related reasons. [New Jersey Devils]
