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

Montreal Canadiens News


  • The Canadiens’ AHL affiliate, the Laval Rocket, will not participate in the 2024 AHL playoffs. Goals from Mitchell Stephens and Lias Andersson put the Rocket in a good position on Friday, but the Belleville Senators stormed back to score three consecutive goals. The Rocket have another game against the Senators tomorrow, but the result will be inconsequential as North Division playoff spots have all been spoken for.

  • Legendary Canadiens bench boss Scotty Bowman thinks the Canadiens are doing good work when it comes to the rebuild.

  • It appears that Nick Suzuki will not be heading to the World Championship. Considering how much his workload with the Canadiens weighs on him, it’s reasonable to suggest he deserves a break.

  • Jordan Harris is one of the most affable players in the organization. He continues to play his part in the community by participating in charitable events.

  • Juraj Slafkovsky will be representing Slovakia at the 2024 World Championship. His relationship with head coach Craig Ramsay certainly helped the decision.
