The former first-round draft pick bounced back from an underwhelming offensive season and has his sights set on the Laval Rocket. A big-bodied, right-handed defenceman, Surrey-native Noah Juulsen impressed from a young age. He’s an effective two-way defender, closing down opportunities in his own end and driving the puck into offensive territory. The Montreal Canadiens selected him 26th overall from the WHL’s Everett Silvertips in the 2015 entry draft. He came with high hopes after having an excellent season, picking up 52 points in 68 games to lead Everett’s defence corps. He was ranked as the #22 skater in North America by Central Scouting leading up

The team announces several trades ahead of the CWHL Draft Les Canadiennes have made several trades today, the biggest of which was acquiring goaltender Emerance Maschmeyer from the Calgary Inferno. Maschmeyer, who represented Canada at the last two World Championships but was not named to the centralization roster for the Olympics, played in eight games last season with Calgary. She posted a 1.49 GAA and .946 save percentage, both were top among goaltenders. She had a 5-3 record. The trade completes the trade that sent Haley Irwin from Montreal to Calgary in 2014. This raises the question of Montreal goaltender Charline Labonté. Labonté and Maschmeyer have spoken at length about their great relationship through National team events. This could either mean that Labonté will take on a sm

The hulking forward moves up one spot as he finds himself at a crossroads. Michael McCarron has a tantalizing set of attributes. A player of his size, with his potential, is what every team wants. The 2013 first-round pick has yet to reach his potential at the professional level. Most of his NHL time has been spent in a fourth-line role, but even his time in the AHL has not brought the production you want to see from a first-round selection, or from a future everyday NHL player.

Howie Morenz: Hockey Royalty

This article was originally written in June, 2010. University of Wisconsin’s Blake Geoffrion, winner of the 2010 Hobey Baker Memorial Award for college hockey’s best player, is the new Crown Prince of NCAA Hockey.  Like a champion thoroughbred racehorse, Blake’s hockey blood lines can be traced back four generations. Howie Morenz, his great-grandfather, who played fourteen years in the NHL (twelve of those years with the Montreal Canadiens), is considered by some to be the best of all time.  His grandfather, Bernie “Boom-Boom” Geoffrion, married Howie’s daughter Marlene and after an outstanding career in Montreal, New York and Atlanta as player, coach and TV personality, followed his father-in-law into the Hockey Hall of Fame. Dan, his father, played four years in the NHL.  Now, it is Blake’s turn. Let’s take a look

Canadiens 2017 Top 25 Under 25: #10 Jacob de la Rose

Could it be a make-or-break season for the Swedish forward? Jacob de la Rose played fewer games in the NHL last season than in his previous two, but that might have been best for the 23-year-old’s development. He had an impressive resume before moving to North America. The 34th-overall pick in 2013 played in three World Junior Championships for Sweden, captaining the team in his final year and finishing with the silver medal twice. He also played in the Swedish Elite League as an 18-year-old and was able to hold his own against professional players. After his first pro season in Sweden, de la Rose moved overseas and attempted to make the NHL full-time. Unfortunately, his reputation for defensive play followed him into M
