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

Montreal Canadiens News

  • According to Corey Pronman at The Athletic, top 2024 NHL Draft prospect Cayden Lindstrom’s injury was due to a herniated disc in his back.  Back issues are incredibly complicated, and without further details (or a medical degree) it’s rather difficult to project whether it’s the type of injury that has the potential to linger throughout his career. The good news is the Habs do have staff with a medical degree, which means they’re sure to do their due diligence prior to the June 28th NHL Entry Draft.[Cayden Lindstrom a Prime Draft Target for the Montreal Canadiens]
  • Lindstrom addressed the injury issues while at the NHL Scouting Combine, assuring everyone that it should not be a concern going forward.

  • The Canadiens are interested in trading for Martin Necas, but they’re far from the only suitors. Half a dozen teams have inquired about the price tag, but so far none of the teams have offered enough to gain the inside track in trade negotiations with the Carolina Hurricanes.  [Montreal Canadiens Among Teams Interested In Top Trade Target]

 

  • Cole Caufield and YouTuber IShowSpeed got together for an interesting off-season skating session. The famous streamer has over 2 million subscriptions on YouTube.

  • The longstanding joke when it came to a Stanley Cup parade route for the Florida Panthers is that it would circle the Sawgrass Mills Mall, ending up in one of the two food courts. Perhaps have some duck boats cruise around the retaining ponds along Panther Parkway. Of course, the idea of the Panthers winning the Stanley Cup was as big a joke as planning a parade for them. Now, it is reality. The Panthers are a win away from winning the Stanley Cup for the first time, and a championship parade is quietly in the works, as it takes time to plan this sort of thing.

  • You have to feel for the Edmonton Oilers in this Stanley Cup Final as it appears they have never seen anything like these Florida Panthers. Hey, join the club. Members thus far include the Tampa Bay Lightning, Boston Bruins, and New York Rangers. [Florida Panthers]
  • You never stop planning ahead as a general manager in the NHL. The immediate concern for the Colorado Avalanche right now is how they’re going to navigate this summer. Is Gabriel Landeskog going to be able to play next season? What, if anything, can be done about the Valeri Nichushkin situation? And with those two wingers in limbo, is there even cap space to bring back Jonathan Drouin? [Colorado Avalanche]
