Grade Phillip Danault’s season

Grade Phillip Danault’s season

Photo by Francois Lacasse/NHLI via In the first year of a new three-year deal, Danault was part of one of the top lines in the league. A prospect when he was acquired from the Chicago Blackhawks back in 2016, Phillip Danault had a great first full NHL season the following year, posting 40 points. His 2017-18 campaign was reduced to just 52 contests by injury, but he played just about a full schedule last year, compiling a career-high 53 points.

Could the Canadiens have their own Patrice Bergeron in Phillip Danault?

Photo by Francois Lacasse/NHLI via Comparing the two Altantic Division pivots in various areas. Over the course of their long history, the Montreal Canadiens have enjoyed a tradition of “200-foot” centres: players who were offensively capable and defensively responsible. Hall of Famers Bob Gainey and Guy Carbonneau are usually the first examples to come to mind. However, over the last decade, the preeminent player of this mould in the NHL has been Patrice Bergeron — something that has stung at many Canadiens fans like a persistent rash. Bergeron ticks all of the boxes to be a...

Phillip Danault is filling the shoes of Tomas Plekanec

Phillip Danault is filling the shoes of Tomas Plekanec

Quietly effective at both ends of the ice, Danault is filling one turtleneck-sized hole in the Canadiens’ lineup perfectly. Phillip Danault has been on quite the ride in just over three seasons as a Montreal Canadiens player. Acquired from the Chicago Blackhawks in 2016, Danault originally looked to be a project of a player, with minimal NHL time and lacklustre production. None of that is what you want to see from a first-round pick, especially for a Chicago team in a cap crunch trying to squeeze a few more years out of an aging core. So Danault and a second-round pick were shipped to...

Phillip Danault established himself with his best season to date

Phillip Danault established himself with his best season to date

In a top-six role for the third straight season, Danault took another step forward. Entering the 2018-19 season, there were questions surrounding Phillip Danault’s ability to lead a top line for the Montreal Canadiens, especially once Max Pacioretty was traded before training camp started. With question marks surrounding the rest of the Canadiens centre depth at the beginning of last season, a huge amount of pressure was going to be put on Danault’s shoulders and not only did he not struggle, he thrived. The line of Danault, Tomas Tatar and Brendan Gallagher was one of the best lines in...
