Montreal Canadiens Links:
Charles Hudon participated in the QMJHL/Russia challenge last night and played on the top line with top centre Jonathan Drouin and "guy I really wanted the Habs to draft" Anthony Mantha. The entire line shined, as Hudon registered two goals and an assist in the Q's 3-2 win. The former 5th round pick should be a shoe-in for Team Canada at the World Juniors if healthy.
Coming off the 1-0 shutout loss to the Rangers, and in advance of tonight's matchup with the Wild, Head Coach Michel Therrien changed up his lines in practice on Monday, giving all four lines a scoring flair. It is yet to be seen whether he'll stick with those lines for tonight's game.
The always controversial Jack Todd weighs in on David Desharnais, arguing that he's a victim of his contract... or something.
