Here are the Montreal Canadiens news items, highlights, and stories from the past weekend.

Montreal Canadiens News

  • Top prospect Owen Beck had a storybook ending to his CHL career. The cerebral centre scored two goals to lead the Saginaw Spirit to their first Memorial Cup championship in team history. Not only does Beck’s final game involve a Memorial Cup win, but he was also named the most valuable player of the tournament. [Canadiens Prospect Owen Beck Steals Spotlight At Memorial Cup]
  • The Montreal Canadiens signed prospect Jared Davidson to an entry-level contract but opted to relinquish the rights of three other prospects from the 2022 NHL Entry Draft. [Montreal Canadiens Lose The Rights To Three Prospects]
  • There are quite a few prospects that could be available at 26th overall, but one that is likely more familiar to Canadiens fans is the younger brother of top prospect, Lane Hutson. Cole Hutson, an electric offensive defenceman in his own right, is ranked right around where the Montreal Canadiens would be set to select for the second time in the first round, assuming the pick isn’t moved in a deal for an offensive forward. In order to learn more about the player, MHN took some time to sit down with the 18-year-old and talk about his record-breaking season.

  • Pierre Houde, the voice of the Montreal Canadiens for over three decades, was named the winner of the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award. Few, if any play-by-play broadcasters have matched Houde’s smooth delivery and impact among hockey fans, new and old. [Canadiens Tribute: Pierre Houde Represents The Best Of Us]

  • The Panthers have not lost an ounce of steam since starting their own redemption tour from the moment the puck dropped to start the postseason. And, like they have done all series, the Panthers outclassed the Rangers and secured a second-straight trip to the Stanley Cup Final. This time, Florida looks to fulfill its destiny. Last year, it was a naive bunch who were just happy to be there after rolling through the playoffs as the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference. Yet from Day 1 of the regular season this year, the Panthers were the hungry team, playing the exact same style they mastered on their way to last year’s playoffs.[Florida Panthers]
  • The Philadelphia Flyers, like every NHL team, have made plenty of terrible trades over the years. But there’s one Flyers trade that stands out from the rest–especially now. The one that sent Florida Panthers goalie Sergei Bobrovsky to the Columbus Blue Jackets on June 22, 2012, in exchange for a 2012 second-round pick, a 2012 fourth-round pick, and a 2013 fourth-round pick.[Philadelphia Flyers]
  • More than his historic 61-goal campaign of a year ago, what establishes right winger David Pastrnak as a generational great in Boston Bruins history is his abiding acceptance of the mantle of leadership for a changing team. Attitude is involved, but Pastrnak has always been competitive. What he is at age 28 is a mature, competitive monster, able and willing to manifest himself in the game as needed to give the Bruins their best chance to win. [Boston Bruins]
