Montreal Canadiens Links

  • Charles Hudon didn't expect to do this well this season with the Hamilton Bulldogs. So far, he has 29 points in 26 games, leading the AHL scoring race by three points overall.  [La Presse, NHL]
  • Check out the Habs community initiatives for this Christmas. [Canadiens]
  • Sven Andrighetto is having a great start so far with the Canadiens, but does he have what it takes to stay once Eller comes back? [Fansided]
  • About Andrighetto: EOTP's Cara had made an interesting case for a Sekac - Plekanec - Andrighetto line in her column. [EOTP]
  • Some quick notes from Friday, the morning of the Kings game. Brendan Gallagher talks about the bar that Jean Beliveau has set for the Montreal Canadiens, and also he gushes about how Alex Galchenyuk is ready to be a centre. "That’s really the only way you can play to be successful. He did a really good job last game and I’m confident he’ll do it again." [Canadiens]

Around the League

  • Sidney Crosby will be out for two games, GM Jim Rutherford insists that "There is no indication at this time that this is the mumps". The Pittsburgh Penguins have the worst luck with illnesses, so...it's definitely going to be the mumps, isn't it? [NHL]
  • The CWHL are going to have a way more crowded All-Star game than what's anticipated. Tickets were originally free with a RSVP, but they switched to conventional ones after the overwhelming response. A reminder that the CWHL and Sportsnet have a deal to broadcast playoff games and special events. You can catch the game today at Sportsnet ONE in Canada, or on the NHL channel in the U.S. [Fansided]
  • The Charlotte Checkers (the AHL affiliate of the Caroline Hurricanses) have released their own hockey "Bad Lip Reading" video. It's so great.  [CBS Sports]
  • Why John Tavares is still a fine hockey player, and why New York Islander fans should relax and enjoy their best start in franchise history. [Lighthouse Hockey]
  • Claude Julien claims players need to protect themselves better, after Jonathan Toews was hit from behind in Boston Bruins game. Get with it, Toews. Use one of those Cup rings as a rearview mirror, that works. [Sportsnet]
  • Not hockey related, but zed-shan linked us to these immunization schedules. Give yourself the best Christmas gift this year by staying healthy. [Public Health Agency, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention]
