Cayden Primeau got the start after Charlie Lindgren played on Saturday against Milwaukee, up against Collin Delia

In a book entitled One Night Only, Sportsnet co-anchor Ken Reid writes about hockey players who were able to live out their NHL dream but in a very ephemeral way – one single game. Most of the names are not very familiar to even the nerdiest of hockey aficionados – Glenn Tomalty, Sean Selmser, Brad Fast. Other entries in Reid’s book are way more famous such as Don Waddell and Don Cherry. Ryan Poehling is hoping that he will not become an eligible candidate for an entry into a subsequent edition or update of the book. The Montreal Canadiens’ management team was excited walking up to the podium in Chicago at the 2017 NHL Entry Draft. Although some of the big names like Nico Hischier (New Jersey Devils), Nolan Patrick (Philadelphia Flyers) and Miro Heiskanen (Dallas Stars) were already proudly parading in front of the media with their new jerseys, the Habs were about to make Po

Montreal Canadiens’ Defense: More Questions Than Answers

Date: 2019-10-15

The 2019-20 NHL season has just gotten underway, and teams are still feeling and figuring out new teammates, systems, and schemes. Many clubs have a plethora of new key players, including the Florida Panthers, Ottawa Senators, and New Jersey Devils, and understandably, they have all struggled out of the gate. Then there are teams like the Boston Bruins who didn’t really change at all over the summer, except for the loss of grinder Noel Acciari, who became one of the Panthers’ many new faces. The Montreal Canadiens fall somewhere in the middle, with most of their key players who made up their core from last season still in the fold. This all begins of course with Carey Price in goal, plus Shea Weber and Jeff Petry on the blue line. The Habs also boast a very balanced forward lineup, able to roll all four lines with ease. While they don’t possess a game-breaker type of forward, they have a group of about six or seven players that drive the offense by committee, inclu
