Montreal Canadiens

  • Montreal nominates Andrei Markov for the Masterton Memorial Trophy, which is given by the Professional Hockey Writers Association to the player who "best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey." [Montreal Gazette]

  • So ironically, the biggest collision threat to Carey Price so far came from within the team. P.K. Subban collided with Price during the Florida game, but all signs say Price is going to be alright. [Puck Daddy]

  • From La Presse's Marc-Antoine Godin: the crowd's reaction to the Price injury, what Montreal can expect in the future, and why the Habs will continue rotating defencemen. [TSN 690]

  • Subban played his 370th consecutive game yesterday. Fun fact: since he arrived in the NHL, P.K. has never missed a game due to injury. The guy is basically Wolverine. [La Presse] (French)

  • Subban is also an offensive machine. Out of the 28 powerplay goals scored while he was on the ice, he has amassed 25 points. [La Presse] (French)

Around the League and Elsewhere

  • So the Player's Tribune is probably not always written by the athletes themselves (case in point: this beautifully crafted Scott Gomez piece). It's bad because the readers are getting misled, but at least we don't have to read terrible prose. [Awful Announcing]

  • The Toronto Maple Leafs tank job is remarkably successful. The chances of drafting outside of the top 5 is under 2%. [Globe and Mail]

  • Watch this NCAA defencemen make a highlight reel save on an empty net. [CBS Sports]


  • The Stanley Cup was on tour in the Arctic this weekend, drawing crowds in Nunavut and Nunavik. [CBC Sports]
  • Former NHL enforcer Andre Deveaux was fired by his Swedish team after Deveaux brutally slashed an opposing player. [CBC Sports]
