Montreal Canadiens Links

  • Jiri Sekac's FIRST NHL GOAL. [EOTP]
  • (French) Goalie prospect Zachary Fucale was sent back to Halifax Mooseheads,to kick off his fourth season playing there. He performed well at camp, but the goalie talent pool is just too deep right down. [RDS]
  • The Canadiens just renovated their locker room, check out the footage. [CBC]
  • This delights me: Two Canadiens games against the Boston Bruins have the most expensive ticket prices of the season. The first, November 22, will cost the average Bruins fan 319.91$ (as opposed to the average price of $118). [Forbes]
  • The Hockey Writers give their opinion on the prospects most likely to make the roster, mostly predictable names, but they also favour Nathan Beaulieu. [The Hockey Writers]
  • Take a look at SCOC's view on what went down last night between the Habs and the Bruins [SCOC]

Around the League and Elsewhere

  • Florida Panthers expect even lower attendance rates this year. Although the owners stated openly that they remain committed to the team, it's easy to see why relocation rumours are constantly swirling. [CBS]
  • Find out what game features were cut from NHL '15, in EA Sports update for September. I don't think they make the game that much better, but some people might appreciate playoff customization and "coach feedback" [Game Informer]
  • Philadelphia Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds was ejected from the game because his opponent was too slow to engage in a fight. Getting an advantage from equal parts good luck and bad timing? Classic Leafs.  [Broad Street Hockey]
  • More details about the league's deal with EPIX. It will be headed by Ross Greenburg, a 52-time Emmy Award winner who formerly worked with HBO Sports. [NHL]
  • Early assessments of New York Ranger players in their pre-season games - Chris Kreider and Carl Hagelin are (surprise) excellent. [Blueshirt Banter]
