Montreal Canadiens Links

  • Hamilton Bulldogs played St John’s IceCaps on Friday. Rene Bourque notched his first point on an assist. He leads the team with seven shots on net. (Note: yes, this was the same game that Sven Andrighetto was scratched from) [CTV]
  • Some great stuff from Elliotte Friedman about Marc Bergevin: read more on how he loves his work, how a GM can influence coaching decisions, and how the Habs can never have too many defensemen. [Sportsnet]

  • (French) Then again, the players themselves seem divided on the 7 D situation. Mike Weaver claims it distracts him from the rhythm of the game, Tom Gilbert says he's used to it, and P.K. Subban says that the arrival of Gonchar can only help the team. [La Presse]
  • Check out what a Canadiens version of the NHL Ugly Sweaters looks like (a thank you to IrishHabs96 for the link!) [Tricolore Sports]
  • (Podcast) Boston Bruins seem like a shadow of their former selves this week. Bob McKenzie weighs in on what's going wrong. Is it Chara's injury, a tough schedule, or something else? I'll do everyone a favour and dig up that gif in advance. [TSN 690]

Around the League and Elsewhere

  • Columbus Blue Jackets acquired defenseman Jordan Leopold from the St. Louis Blues, in exchange for a 2016 fifth-round pick. [NHL]
  • Watch Jaroslav Halak stop a shot with the back of his head. [SB Nation]
  • Jarret Stoll picks the perfect moment to score his first NHL goal, scoring the OT winner of a Kings vs Ducks game.[SB Nation]
  • HHOF inductees on who should be inducted next. Jaromir Jagr for sure, if he ever retires.  [The Star]
  • 5 of the funniest hockey commercials ever made. Good thing this wasn't "5 of the most awkward hockey commercials ever made", or else it would be impossible to cap at five. [The Hockey Writers]
