Canadiens recall ten players from Bulldogs

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

As expected the Canadiens have recalled their "Black Aces" for the remainder of the NHL playoffs.

With the Hamilton Bulldogs season ending yesterday against Syracuse the Montreal Canadiens have recalled ten players who will serve as "Black Aces" in the playoffs.

Devan Dubnyk, Dustin Tokarski, Nathan Beaulieu, Davis Drewiske, Greg Pateryn, Sven AndrighettoMichael Blunden, Gabriel Dumont, Louis Leblanc, and Christian Thomas will all serve as depth callups for the Canadiens in case of any major injuries. While many fans have been clamoring for players such as Leblanc and Beaulieu to be given a better shot in the NHL it is highly unlikely that any of the above players will see any ice time unless some sort of major catastrophe  should strike the Habs lineup.

Outside of Andrighetto, who is in his rookie season each of these call ups has played at least one game at the NHL level giving Montreal a huge depth advantage over many of the teams in the playoffs right now.
