Montreal Canadiens News and Notes

  • Friday's trade action saw former 22nd-overall pick Jarred Tinordi dealt to the Arizona Coyotes, representing a fruitless first-round selection for the Canadiens. [La Presse Plus]
  • That trade also represents something of a controversy, as John Scott's assignment to the AHL means he will not be eligible to captain a team at the NHL All Star Game. As Pat Iversen writes, fans voted Scott into the position and the league made him pay. [SB Nation]
  • Jack Goods of Die By The Blade chatted with Marc Dumont about Torrey Mitchell and Brian Flynn in their Habs edition of "Buffalo Sabres Where Are They Now." [DBTB]
  • The St. John's Ice Caps have released forward Eric Neilson from his professional tryout contract, and also sent Brandom McNally to the ECHL's Brampton beast. Neilson played just six games with the Ice Caps this season while McNally has appeared in 23. [Ice Caps | NeilsonMcNallly]
