Montreal Canadiens Links

  • Is it finally Nathan Beaulieu's time? The youngest Habs blue-liner has earned a promotion into the top four, forming a pairing with the oldest player on the team, Sergei Gonchar. [Canadiens]
  • After three days off, the Habs were back on the ice in Carolina over the weekend. We often hear about Carey Price's superb puck-handing and underrated passing ability, but what about his shot? He joined P.K. Subban to work on it, shooting pucks on net after practice. [Canadiens]
  • The boys are finally back in action against the Carolina Hurricanes tonight. The last place Canes will get a much needed boost as centre Jordan Staal is expected to return to the lineup. [Hurricanes]
  • Canadiens prospect Zachary Fucale will get the start in goal for Canada against Finland at the World Juniors tomorrow night at the Bell Centre. The job appears to be his to lose. [TSN]
  • Don't blame all of Canada's struggles over the past five years at the tournament on goaltending. Canada's lack of scoring should be the prime focus. [Arctic Ice Hockey]

Around the League and Elsewhere

  • Despite all the financial issues surrounding the Arizona Coyotes franchise, hockey in the desert appears to be on the rise. 17-year-old Arizona native Auston Matthews, who is currently playing for the United States at the World Juniors, is primed to be a top pick in the NHL Draft.

  • Puck Daddy continues their 2014 year in review. Check out the top 10 jersey fouls of the year. [Puck Daddy]
  • Attention stat geeks! Here is a totally awesome site that shows Canada's advanced stats from each game at the World Juniors. [Defining Hockey]
  • Lastly, please enjoy this video of everyone's favourite Boston Bruins commentator Jack Edwards freaking out after the puck hits the netting before the Columbus Blue Jackets goal. Never change, Jack! [YouTube]
