Brendan Gallagher's Evolving Role With the Canadiens - The Hockey Writers Montreal Canadiens Latest News, Analysis & More
Not too long ago, Brendan Gallagher was skating alongside Philip Danault and Tomas Tatar forming the Montreal Canadiens' top line. With hockey being the business it is though, the three linemates were split up because of money issues and the fact Danault was cast as a mostly defensive center in Montreal and craved a more offensive role. Ironically, it's probably the contract Marc Bergevin signed with Gallagher that spelled the trio's end. Gallagher busted into the NHL in the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season.

Canadiens will have every opportunity to select Saku Koivu's son at draft
The Montreal Canadiens have a dozen picks in the upcoming NHL draft. Aatos Koivu, son of longtime Canadiens captain Saku Koivu, is expected to hear his name called by an NHL team at the podium at the Las Vegas Sphere next month. Logging 16 and 31 points over 28 games in Finland's top U-20 league, Koivu, a centre like his father Saku and uncle Mikko, is a nifty offensive force with an imposing shot. Despite only being 17, Koivu played most of the 2023-24 season with the U20 team and earned a few call-ups to the Liiga, Finland's top league.

Canadiens and Evans at Crossroads with 1 Year Left Under Contract
Decimated down the middle in 2023-24, the Montreal Canadiens relied on centre Jake Evans to take on increased responsibility and he responded in kind. If there was any justice in the world, Evans would be rewarded for coming through, but, as it stands, he's more likely to be an odd man out once the dust settles. Nick Suzuki is firmly entrenched as the Canadiens' No. 1 centre. Finally, Alex Newhook has made a case to similarly be played down the middle.

Kaiden Guhle Last Remaining Canadien at 2024 World Championship - The Hockey Writers Montreal Canadiens Latest News, Analysis & More
Yesterday was quarterfinal day at the World Championships and four members of the Montreal Canadiens' organization were involved in three of the four quarterfinals. In the early game, Canada and Kaiden Guhle faced Slovakia and Juraj Slafkovsky. A bit later, the USA and Cole Caufield took on Czechia while Oliver Kapanen and Finland faced Sweden. The big winger probably stopped a lot of Canadiens fans breathing when he blocked a slapshot from the blue line with the inside of his hand during a penalty kill.

Canadiens have better playoff record than most NHL teams in last 15 years
Montreal Canadiens fans remember the 2000s and 2010s as the only two decades in which the team went without a Stanley Cup since its inception over 100 years ago. A new NHL video graph demonstrates that the Habs have won nine best-of-seven postseason matchups in that time. The Tampa Bay Lightning, who have won two Stanley Cups and advanced to the Final four times since 2015, sit comfortably at the top with 20 series wins. Meanwhile, the Boston Bruins, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Chicago Blackhawks are second with 17 victories each, combining for a total of five cups in that timeframe.

Stu Cowan: What if the Canadiens had drafted Chris Kreider in 2009?
Imagine if the Canadiens had drafted Chris Kreider. The 2009 NHL Draft was held at the Bell Centre and with the 18th overall pick former Canadiens GM Bob Gainey selected hometown boy Louis Leblanc. With the next pick, the New York Rangers took Kreider. Leblanc would only play 50 games with the Canadiens, posting 5-5-10 totals.

Toronto could replace Montreal as host of international NHL tournament
The highly anticipated NHL 4 Nations Face-Off could be swapping host cities. While it's long been reported that Montreal and Boston would host the inaugural 4 Nations Face-Off next year, one-half of the international tournament featuring NHLers from Canada, the United States, Finland, and Sweden could be moved to Toronto. If that's the case, Montreal would lose out. According to a new report from Sportsnet insider Elliotte Friedman, Montreal tournament organizers are having trouble making a deal with the NHL.

Canadiens Have Great Opportunity With 5th and 26th Picks in 2024 NHL Draft 
While the second-round series featuring the Edmonton Oilers and the Vancouver Canucks kept Canadians on the edge of their seats right up to the end of Game 7, Montreal Canadiens fans had another reason to keep close tabs on the matchup. The winner's identity would determine when the Canadiens would take to the podium for the second time in the first round of the 2024 NHL Draft. While general manager (GM) Kent Hughes is always amenable to trading, you won't get him to accept a deal for anything less than he believes his asset is worth. In return, Montreal obtained Tyler Pitlick, the signing rights to Emil Heineman, Calgary's first-round pick at the 2022 Draft and Calgary's fifth-round pick in 2023.

Parents of junior hockey player killed in crash celebrate as team captures provincial championship
Days after capturing their second provincial championship in three years, the captain of an Essex County junior hockey team says his fellow players were playing for something "bigger than the team" this year. On Friday, the Lakeshore Canadiens defeated the Clarington Eagles in the finals of the Provincial Junior Hockey League playoffs. For the local Habs, winning the Schmalz Cup is a dream come true — but their season began as a nightmare after they learned one of their newest teammates had died. This past October, a crash between an SUV and tractor trailer on County Road 42, West of Patillo Road, claimed the life of 20-year-old Sylvain Lessard.Sylvain Lessard.

Oh, Canada. Just how long is the country's Stanley Cup drought?
Hockey might be Canada's game, but the Stanley Cup resides in the United States. It's something Canada has grown accustomed to over recent decades. Despite dominating the early days of the NHL and all the way into the 1980s, the U.S. has taken complete control over the league and the Stanley Cup. Canada's quest for the Cup in 2024 now lies in the hands of the Edmonton Oilers, who knocked out the Vancouver Canucks in the second round.

Former Canadiens Scout Grant McCagg Looks to Continue Draft Prediction Success
Around this time every year, everyone gets their mock drafts done even though professional scouts live and breathe junior hockey all year. Here's a look at his past predictions and who he believes will be the Canadiens' chosen one with the fifth-overall selection. According to McCagg's Recrutes, he grew up a Canadiens fan and got stung by the draft-obsession bug when general manager Sam Pollock managed — with astute trading and pick swapping — to steal Guy Lafleur under the California Golden Seals.

Canadiens GM Kent Hughes Remains Firm on Keeping Arber Xhekaj - The Hockey Writers Montreal Canadiens Latest News, Analysis & More
When Marc Bergevin signed undrafted defenceman Arber Xhekaj to an entry-level contract in October 2021, hardly anyone had heard about the hard-hitting defenceman. Three years later, a large part of the Canadiens' fandom has become enamoured with the 23-year-old blueliner. Or maybe it's because while most teenagers twiddled their thumbs during the pandemic, Xhekaj was working in a Costco?

Habs Mailbag: GM Kent Hughes has some options when it comes to trades
Both executive vice-president of hockey operations Jeff Gorton and general manager Kent Hughes know they have to acquire more forwards who can produce offence for this rebuild to work and they have the draft picks and an abundance of young defencemen that would allow them to put together a pretty good package for a trade.

Montreal's players already excited for Year 2 of PWHL: 'This league is on the up'
Marie-Philip Poulin couldn't find enough positive things to say about her experience in Year 1 of the Professional Women's Hockey League, even though she had to work through a malfunctioning microphone to express it. Montreal's captain winced as a staticky, distorted noise echoed through the speakers during her team's end-of-season press conference at the Verdun Auditorium on Friday, unable to finish answering her first question before the faulty mics were whisked away. But for Poulin, that's just a minor kink the PWHL needs to work out after an inaugural season to remember. “This thing has been amazing, and it's just going to keep growing,” Poulin said.
