Montreal Canadiens News

  • Russian forward Ivan Demidov is considered the second-most talented player available at the 2024 NHL Entry Draft, but there are no guarantees he’ll be drafted early. This works to the Canadiens’ advantage, as they could certainly use an injection of talent in their forward prospect pool.  [Pre-Draft Nerves Improve Odds Demidov Available To Canadiens]
  • The hope that Demidov might be available at fifth overall will grow if teams continue to question whether he’s top 3 material.

  • It’s no secret that the New Jersey Devils are after a goaltender this summer. New Jersey nearly acquired a No.1 goaltender ahead of the 2024 NHL Trade Deadline in March in a deal with the Calgary Flames. However, the Flames-Devils trade was nixed at the finish line and the deal never came to fruition. [New Jersey Devils]
  • Evan Rodrigues had played for three teams in eight seasons before landing with the Florida Panthers. For the first time in his career, he is playing for the Stanley Cup. After getting a taste of the playoffs with Pittsburgh and Colorado, the 33-year-old could not wait to go on a deep run with the Panthers. Rodrigues played in his first Stanley Cup Final game on Saturday night and had a night he and the Panthers will certainly remember. [Florida Panthers]
  • General Manager Craig Conroy may have yet more sweet sorrow to deal with.
