Josh Brook is finally healthy again, and makes a surprise appearance at Habs camp

Josh Brook is finally healthy again, and makes a surprise appearance at Habs camp

The Canadiens prospect has already taken a rare step by simply being at the main camp. Josh Brook skating next to Xavier Ouellet during the first day of Montreal Canadiens training camp on Friday afternoon doesn’t raise the eyebrows or alarm bells that Victor Mete did next to Shea Weber a year ago. But that doesn’t mean the feat isn’t notable. Brook attending camp without an entry-level contract (along with Cale Fleury, who is in a completely different, yet similar, situation) is something that the Canadiens haven’t had at camp in at least the last three seasons. Last year, as an...

Lines and notes from Day One of training camp

How the Canadiens lined up at Camp on Day One Last year, after a summer of guessing on who would be Shea Weber’s partner, the Montreal Canadiens opened camp with Victor Mete alongside the veteran. And while many thought it was a temporary position, Mete opened the regular season in that very spot. This year, there was no such surprise, but Paul Byron being healthy enough to start camp is a pleasant occurrence for the team and it does increase the urgency for forwards vying for a spot in camp. The team, as it is every year, was split into three groups. Two groups of players fighting for a...

Canadiens’ Weber confident he can be ‘as good if not stronger’ when healthy

It’s fairly evident what the Montreal Canadiens will be missing in Shea Weber’s lengthy absence to start the season, but no one can be entirely sure about what the big man will be capable of when he returns from his injuries. The post NHL appeared first on Sportsnet.ca.

Roster announced for Canadiens training camp

A total of 66 players will take part in the Habs’ camp. With rookie camp now wrapped up, the real tryouts for the 2018-19 NHL season begin. The Montreal Canadiens will be evaluating 66 players in training camp, testing some of their free-agent signees versus some of their own young drafted prospects. With injuries to Shea Weber, Andrew Shaw, and Paul Byron, there will be chances for some players to earn spots. Cale Fleury, who has yet to receive his entry-level contract, is one player who will be vying for an open spot on the right side of the defence. Jesperi Kotkaniemi, despite looking...

Feisty forward and Shea Weber are the only two real candidates for the job, but the 'C' would be a better fit on Gallagher's No. 11 jersey.

Shea Weber’s injury could be a major opportunity for Cale Fleury

The 2017 draft pick could follow in Victor Mete’s footsteps this fall. While he currently is not signed to an entry-level contract, Cale Fleury could very well begin his professional career this season. Thanks in part to his birthday, the Canadiens have options for the third-round pick, including having him play the year in the AHL if they wanted him among their professional ranks in 2018. It’s not a matter of room either, as in the AHL right now the only right-shot defencemen is Brett Lernout, who, entering his fourth AHL season, hasn’t proven to be an NHL-calibre prospect. With...

2018 Canadiens Top 25 Under 25: #2 Max Domi

2018 Canadiens Top 25 Under 25: #2 Max Domi

Domi will try to create a name for himself in Montreal during the 2018-19 campaign. Marc Bergevin has not shied away from making franchise-altering moves. On June 15, exactly one year after the Jonathan Drouin for Mikhail Sergachev swap, Bergevin made another big trade, this time acquiring Max Domi from the Arizona Coyotes straight up for Alex Galchenyuk. Naturally, just as Drouin and Shea Weber since their respective trades, Domi will be perceived as a replacement to Galchenyuk, and every move that he makes will be compared to his predecessor. Fortunately for Domi, he is likely to be...

2018 Canadiens Top 25 Under 25: #4 Victor Mete

Mete skated his way past all expectations in 2017-18. It took just over a year for Victor Mete to go from a fourth-round draft pick in 2016 to playing regular shifts in the NHL alongside the revered Shea Weber in the 2017-18 NHL campaign. The 100th overall selection embraced and passed a multitude of challenges that many, including maybe himself, did not foresee when he laced up for the Montreal Canadiens training camp last year. With the departures of Andrei Markov and Nathan Beaulieu, among others, new bench boss Claude Julien was clearly in need of a smooth-skating defenceman. Mete stood...
