Here are the latest Montreal Canadiens news, highlights, and stories you may have missed on Wednesday.


  • Forward Joshua Roy may have the least professional experience in the Montreal Canadiens lineup, but he’s already become one of their most important forwards. His production is excellent, and his underlying numbers suggest the best is yet to come. Roy, along with the three players on the top line, is leading the charge for the Habs.

  • Unfortunately, since we’re talking about a Canadiens player performing well, we also have to allow for the inevitable injury to said player. Roy will be held out of action indefinitely after he blocked a shot with his hand in the hard-fought loss to the Edmonton Oilers.


  • The PWHL is in the midst of its inaugural season, and things couldn’t be going better. To the point that the game scheduled at the Bell Centre sold out in less than 60 minutes. If you haven’t had a chance to watch a PWHL game, I strongly suggest you carve out a little time to check it out. All their games are streamed for free on YouTube, and Montreal has one of the best teams in the league.

  • Juraj Slafkovsky was again spotted practicing with his all-white Proto-R (Bauer). He’s yet to use it in a game, but we’re seeing him use the stick with more frequency of late.


  • Former Hab Jake Allen is having a lot of fun with his new team, the New Jersey Devils.

  • Top prospect Lane Hutson is among the 10 finalists for the Hobey Baker Award.

  • A lot like the Canadiens, the Calgary Flames are not expected to make the playoffs. But it’s never too early to take a look at the upcoming crop of unrestricted free agents that could potentially improve the Flames lineup. [Calgary Flames]
