Tuesday Habs Headlines: Eyes on the Prospects

Today's links are big on the prospects, what the Habs are going to do with Kotkaniemi, Poehling's post-surgery triumphs, a chat about Nick Suzuki, and more

Montreal Canadiens News and Notes

  • Junior Hockey Magazine talks about Nick Suzuki. [Soundcloud]
  • You may remember that Ryan Poehling had surgery early this summer, and it's clearly paid off. [Canadiens]
  • Mark Borowiecki isn't happy with the hit laid by Brendan Gallagher on Saturday. [Ottawa Sun]
  • All Michael McCarron's hard work seems to be more than paying off! [Twitter]/
  • Dear Habs, welcome to the modern NHL! [The Athletic]
  • Jesperi Kotkaniemi's ten games area almost up, as are those of Kailer Yamamoto, Brady Tkachuck, Rasmus Dahlin, and others. So how are their clubs going to approach the rest of their seasons? [NHL]
  • Julien and Bergevin still intend that Kotkaniemi will remain in Montreal. [TSN]/

Around the League and Elsewhere

  • The Scrum Podcast chats with CWHL Calgary Inferno's play by play broadcaster Sandra Prusina. [Soundcloud]
  • Curtis Joseph talks about his new book and the Leafs. [TSN]
  • After terrorising KHL goalies in the playoffs two years ago by scoring three times from centre ice, Andrei Kuteikin is back at his old tricks. [NBC Sports]
  • The New York Islanders remember Charles Wang. [NHL]
  • The LA Kings are struggling, both for answers and on the ice. [The Hockey News]
  • We always hear that a player's best is yet to come, but with Nathan MacKinnon, “yet” may now be here. [ESPN]
  • We all know the standards: pucks in deep, couldn't do it without my teammates, stick to the game plan, not the result we wanted, etc, etc etc. But increasingly, we've seen more candid (and entertaining) comments from more and more players (Lars Eller and Evgeny Kuznetsov spring to mind, as does pretty much everything that comes out of Patrik Laine's mouth). Justin Bourne speculates on some of the things that have contributed to this pleasant change. [The Athletic]/
