Montreal Canadiens News

  • The Montreal Canadiens have confirmed their intent to be as active as they can on the trade front, and they have some interesting pieces they can offer. When General Manager Kent Hughes and EVP Jeff Gorton sat down for their end-of-season press conference, they didn’t shy away from their desire to make moves this summer; intending to improve the club’s long-term success.

  • Juraj Slafkovsky scoring his 20th goal in the final game of the season was quite entertaining, especially since it was assisted by Lane Hutson. On that note, the goal will have an impact on the team’s 2024-25 salary cap outlook, as it was part of several bonuses paid out to various Canadiens players.

  • PWHL Montreal was eliminated in three straight games by Boston, owing to a lack of depth throughout the Montreal lineup. Stars such as Marie-Philip Poulin are important, but it’s virtually impossible for a hockey player to win a game single-handedly.

  • Juraj Slafkovsky is always appreciative of the immense fan support he receives in Montreal, as well as the national team fans that are proud to see him represent Slovakia.

  • The Bruins knew they were going home to Boston regardless of what happened Tuesday night. They wanted to drag the Florida Panthers along with them. Now, we have a series. Boston, which lost a 3-1 series lead to the Panthers last year, hopes to turn the tables this postseason as it got 28 saves from Jeremy Swayman to beat the Panthers 2-1 on Tuesday.[Florida Panthers]
  • Most teams depend on their star players to get them out of slumps, and the Colorado Avalanche are no different. Nathan MacKinnon has been held to just one assist over the last three games, all of which his team has lost. His linemate, Mikko Rantanen, has just one goal in that same timeframe.

  • In his own words, a Philadelphia Flyers prospect will play for HK Sochi in the KHL next season. No, not Matvei Michkov. 18-year-old goalie Egor Zavragin will take his talents to Russia’s highest level of hockey in 2024. [Philadelphia Flyers]
