Habs recall Gabriel Dumont and Greg Pateryn from Hamilton

In a curious move, Montreal has recalled struggling forward Gabriel Dumont, along with Greg Pateryn.

It's Greg Pateryn's turn to be the yoyo call up between Hamilton and Montreal, and even without getting into a game, he hasn't missed a beat in Hamilton with 7 points in 7 games.

Also called up to the Montreal Canadiens tonight was Gabriel Dumont, who has had a rough start to the year in Hamilton with no goals and just 4 assists in 12 games, to go along with 20 PIM and a -4 rating. Dumont has recorded 24 shots in those games, which is actually a lower shot rate than he had last season, but with the influx of offensive talent over the offseason, he's likely getting far fewer offensive opportunities.

Neither player is likely to play, though I can't say that Dumont in over George Parros, and Pateryn in over Douglas Murray would disappoint anyone.
