Montreal Canadiens News

  • Several Montreal Canadiens prospects are expected to take the next step in their hockey careers next season. Take a closer look at where players like Owen Beck, Filip Mesar, and others will end up in 2024-25.   [Montreal Canadiens Prospects Set To Join New Teams]


  • The Seattle Kraken fired their head coach, Dave Hakstol, on Monday. This means Martin St-Louis is now one of the longest-tenured coaches in the NHL, and though he entered the job without much experience, he has grown with the group of players who are expected to play a crucial role in the team’s rebuild. On top of gaining the respect of his players, he also has the trust of the fanbase, and most importantly, Canadiens management.    [Canadiens Head Coach St-Louis One Of Longest Tenured In NHL]


  • The Habs finally released some original content on Monday, a quick video showcasing Lane Hutson’s first NHL game.

  • Juraj Slafkovsky is set to get underway at the World Championships, which are taking place in Czechia. He’s expected to be in the lineup as Slovakia faces Poland on Friday.

  • Ryan Graves was supposed to be the Pittsburgh Penguins’ plug-and-play replacement for Brian Dumoulin, the steady and reliable left defenseman who counterbalanced Kris Letang for a half dozen seasons. Dumoulin departed via free agency as the blue line shuffle was necessitated by Dumoulin’s decline and the Penguins’ need to get younger. There might be a potential fit in Montreal if the Canadiens are desperate to move Josh Anderson,  but it’s far from a perfect solution to Montreal’s lack of game-changing forwards.

  • Last Spring, the Avalanche did not have that combination available to them for the entirety of the first round, and the difference was very noticeable. Everyone knows what happened with Nichushkin prior to Game Three in Seattle, but don’t forget that Lehkonen played most of that series on a broken toe. This is a very different team without those two in the lineup or even at full health, and we saw that against the Kraken. Right now, they’re both healthy, and the Jets have zero answers for them. Not only are they going to outwork you, but they’re supremely talented. [Detroit Red Wings]
  • The Philadelphia Flyers won’t be happy to see that their No. 1 prospect, Matvei Michkov, has been left off the Russian National Team for the upcoming Liga Stavok Big National Team Tour by head coach Roman Rotenberg. [Philadelphia Flyers]
