Montreal Canadiens news and notes

  • The Canadiens could be one of the most enticing teams for Kevin Shattenkirk to move to on a rental basis. That and a lot more in Elliott Friedman’s always informative 30 Thoughts. [Sportsnet]
  • David Desharnais is skating once again, but has yet to take part in an actual team practice as he recovers from a knee injury. [Twitter]
  • Michel Therrien recently achieved the 400-wins milestone, and the game’s greatest player reflects on the influence the coach had on his early career:
  • Andrew Berkshire and one-time Hab Mike Johnson sat down to talk — both in general and specific terms — about leadership and locker-room issues. [Andrew Berkshire Podcast]
  • Andrew also attempts to find the source of Carey Price’s struggles over the past month. [Sportsnet]
  • He may not be getting many wins on the ice lately, but Price is still a winner with his adoring fans:
  • Sven Andrighetto’s goal was just his second of the season and had little impact on the game, but it was a major mark in the history of the franchise. [Twitter]
  • Phillip Danault is doing very well since his move to Montreal, much to the chagrin of one Blackhawks fan:
  • John and Michael McCarron played their first professional game together last night. The St. John’s IceCaps captured the moment (with a cameo appearance from Brett Lernout) [Twitter]
  • Les Canadiennes star Caroline Ouellette is coaching at this year’s Quebec PeeWee Tournament, and at least one of the girls she will be will guiding is very excited about the opportunity to learn from the living legend. [La Presse (French)]
  • The Canadiens congratulated Tim “Rock“ Raines on his induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame. [Twitter]
