Montreal Canadiens news and notes

  • Juraj Slafkovský is making progress across the board compared to last season. A major issue is that his linemates aren’t complementing his abilities. [TVA Sports]
  • It was thanks to the play of Kaiden Guhle that the Canadiens could complete their comeback versus the Jets without Mike Matheson. [RDS]
  • If he can stay healthy, Matheson would be a great pickup for your fantasy league. [Sportsnet]
  • Justn Barron and Jake Allen are looking like good adds, too. [Fantasy Alarm]
  • Guhle’s play was to be expected. Tanner Pearson sitting fifth on Montreal’s scoring list was less so. [The Athletic]
