Montreal Canadiens Links

  • It's no secret P.K. Subban is one of the top defenceman in the NHL, but it's growing increasingly evident that he’s a hell of a guy off the ice as well. The Norris Trophy nominee made the day of a few young fans, joining a group of kids and their parents for a little game of street hockey in Westmont. [The Score]
  • The guys at Habs Breakfast discuss the team's remaining needs after the signing of Jeff Petry. [Montreal 690]
  • Due to cap issues, the Boston Bruins won't resign Carl Soderberg. As our very own Andrew Berkshire writes, he could be a solid upgrade for the Canadiens. [EOTP]
  • Lastly, the St. John's IceCaps have signed Josiah Didier to a one-year deal. [TVA]

  • McDavid's new arch rival attended the game last night as well. Jack Eichel was very happy with his performance at the NHL combine. [TSN]
