Enjoying every moment

QUEBEC CITY – As Zachary Fucale closes out his Junior career, he’s savoring the entire Memorial Cup experience.Just a few hours away from celebrating his 20th birthday, Fucale clearly isn’t the same goaltender he was when he participated in the Memorial Cup for the first time two years ago. Back then, the young netminder finished the tournament in style by winning it all as a member of the Hal


MONTREAL – If there’s one player who gave it his all every time he hit the ice in 2014-15, it was Brendan Gallagher.While things like character, effort and heart cannot be represented statistically, here are a few numbers that speak volumes about Gallagher’s campaign. He registered 254 shots on goal during the regular season, which was good for 16th spot in the NHL. He scored 21 goals at e

Showcasing his talent

QUEBEC CITY – Michael McCarron is taking advantage of the 2015 Memorial Cup to show Canadiens fans what the future has in store.The Habs’ lack of size at centre has been a hot topic as of late in Montreal. Even general manager Marc Bergevin affirmed that acquiring a towering pivot wasn’t as easy as some people believed. Fortunately, the CH might have a solution to that problem already in the s

Moving on up

Punching his ticket

MONTREAL – This past season, Nathan Beaulieu made it abundantly clear that he wouldn’t be returning to the AHL ranks anytime soon.Since making his professional debut two years ago after enjoying a stellar Junior career, Beaulieu’s road towards NHL stardom has included the natural highs and lows that typically come with the territory. After several stints with the big club over the last few sea

Thriving under pressure

MONTREAL – Much was expected of P.K. Subban this past season and he didn’t disappoint. When Subban signed the most lucrative contract ever given to a player in Canadiens history last August, he knew that people would be paying particularly close attention to his performance in 2014-15, even more so than they had in his four previous seasons in Montreal. The fact that he’d returned from Sochi

No place like Montreal

MONTREAL – It’s hard to predict exactly which pending free agents will be back in Montreal next season, but it’s safe to say they’d all like to be.
