Habs Daily: Reinbacher’s Strong Play, Calgary’s First-Round Pick



Montreal Canadiens defenceman David Reinbacher

Here are the Montreal Canadiens news, highlights, and stories you may have missed during the weekend.


  • ICYMI: Top prospect David Reinbacher scored a goal on his first shot with the Montreal Canadiens’ AHL affiliate, the Laval Rocket. It was also an important goal as it allowed the Rocket to push the game to overtime and secure a crucial win for their playoff push.

  • Reinbacher also registered an assist when Sean Farrell scored against the Toronto Marlies on Sunday.


  • The Montreal Canadiens hold the Calgary Flames’ 2025 1st-round pick, which could end up being a very interesting asset if the Flames go full-throttle on their re-tool. Yes, that 1st-round pick with the ridiculously convoluted conditions could very well be a strong trade chip for the Canadiens as soon as this summer.

  • The Habs decided to give goaltender Cayden Primeau the start against the Seattle Kraken on Sunday. There were two other significant roster changes to note, as Jesse Ylonen replaced Tanner Pearson and Jayden Struble replaced Johnathan Kovacevic. [Canadiens Game 70: Primeau To Start, Lineup Changes]
  • Primeau was dominant versus Seattle. The Habs won 5-1 thanks to goals from Alex Newhook (2), Nick Suzuki, Kaiden Guhle, and Mike Matheson, but it was Primeau’s play that won the game for the road team. [Results Kraken Game]


  • Lane Hutson and Luke Tuch faced Jacob Fowler on Saturday to see which Boston team would emerge as the Hockey East champions. Fowler’s Boston Boston College Eagles won handily, beating Hutson’s Boston University Terriers 6-2. Fowler was named to the Hockey East all-tournament All-Star Team.

  • New Jersey Devils forward Timo Meier is typically a pretty reserved guy. That concept went out the window in the second period of the Devils’ tilt with the New Jersey Devils on Sunday evening at UBS Arena. [New Jersey Devils]

  • Since an embarrassing 9-2 home loss to the Dallas Stars on Feb. 15, Nashville Predators head coach Andrew Brunette has led the team on a 14-0-2 run in their last 16 games, and the way they’ve performed in each of those games now can only be summed up in one word: relentless.

  • The Colorado Avalanche were down by four, but there was never any panic on that bench. Former Hab Jonathan Drouin was asked if the bench was still calm, despite the deficit in the second period. His answer was excellent, and it just goes to show the difference between a veteran group and a young group that hasn’t been there before.[Colorado Avalanche]
