Montreal Canadiens prospect filip mesar

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



  • The good news is that Joel Armia scored two goals versus the Lightning, matching his career-best output. Juraj Slafkovsky and Cole Caufield also scored, but the late-game rally by the Habs was too little, too late. The game also featured some questionable officiating, but it wasn’t the reason Montreal lost.[Canadiens Recap: Injuries, Goals, & Poor Officiating Vs Tampa Bay]


  • The Habs have the day off today, which means we may not get an update on defenceman Kaiden Guhle. The 22-year-old defenceman had to leave the game after being hit from behind by Nikita Kucherov.


  • With the loss against Tampa Bay, the Canadiens are officially ineligible to qualify for the 2024 playoffs. St-Louis took a rather positive approach to the situation.


  • Filip Mesar scored his first goal of the OHL playoffs. He has now seven points in the first four games of the series against the Erie Otters. The bad news is that the Kitchener Rangers lost, which means the series is now tied at two games a piece.


  • Nick Suzuki registered his 40th assist of the season on Thursday. He is the first member of the Montreal Canadiens to reach 30 goals and 40 assists in a season since Le Magicien did it back in 2007-08.

  • The Chicago Blackhawks have been rebuilding the right way ever since Kyle Davidson took over the franchise as the general manager. He has overhauled everything from top to bottom. It hasn’t been easy but a lot of the hockey heartache was rewarded with the first overall pick in the 2023 NHL Draft. That certainly accelerated the rebuild but it was clear that there was a lot more work to do.[Chicago Blackhawks]

  • Chris MacFarland just had a dynamite trade deadline, reshaping his Colorado Avalanche in hopes of a long playoff run. It’s never too early to start thinking about next season, though. On Wednesday, the Avalanche announced that they had re-signed veteran center Chris Wagner to a one-year contract for the 2024-25 season. [New Jersey Devils]
