Canadiens call up Jacob de la Rose from AHL, send down Sven Andrighetto and Daniel Carr

0204 spt nhl canadiens 0433


The Canadiens announced before practice Friday morning in Brossard that they have called up Jacob de la Rose from the AHL’s St. John’s IceCaps, while sending down Sven Andrighetto and Daniel Carr.

De la Rose has played 24 games with the IceCaps this season, scoring two goals and adding seven assists. The 20-year-old will meet the Canadiens in St. Louis, where they will play the Blues Saturday night (7 p.m., SN, TVA Sports, TSN Radio 690).

In 17 games with the Canadiens after being called up from the AHL, Carr had five goals and two assists. Andrighetto, who has been up and down all season between Montreal and St. John’s, has four goals and one assist in 17 games with the Canadiens.

The Canadiens held an optional skate in Brossard at 11 a.m. before the team headed to the airport for a flight to St. Louis.


The decision to send down Carr comes as a surprise since he is one of the few Canadiens players who has shown a willingness to consistently go to the dirty areas in front of the opposition net to score goals. During Thursday’s 2-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks he created energy on the fourth line with Torrey Mitchell and Brian Flynn. Carr had three shots on goal in only 10:48 of ice time and the line combined for seven shots, with Mitchell and Flynn both getting two.

When asked Friday morning if he thought Carr’s game had slipped a bit, coach Michel Therrien said: “A little bit. It’s normal. Most of the time, especially when you get called up (to the NHL) the first time, you’re so excited. What is tough for young kids is not making the NHL, but to maintain the emotion. But it’s a process. He did really good. We’re really pleased with what we saw.”


As for de la Rose, Therrien said: “In that case, he’s got size. He skates really, really well. He’s a good skater and the role that we’re going to give him, we think we’re going to have more heavy players on the fourth line.”

Therrien said de la Rose would definitely be in the lineup Saturday night. Dale Weise, who has been sidelined with an upper-body injury (it’s to his right hand) took part in the optional skate Friday and could play Saturday if he gets medical clearance.

Mike Condon will start in goal against the Blues.

Carey Price skated alone for the fifth straight day before the team’s optional practice, but wasn’t wearing his goalie equipment. The team has said the goaltender won’t return from his lower-body injury — which has sidelined him since Nov. 25 — until at least after the all-star break at the end of this month.

  1. HabinBurlington says:

    If we wanted toughness why Scott? Torres can skate, forecheck and is batshit crazy. Other Dmen would have to think everytime he is on the ice.

    This is just plain silly.

    So happy this team sat on its royal ass of arrogance and told Kassian how to smarten up. Unbelievable, the sense of entitlement coming out of the Bell Center is really getting nauseating.

  2. ConcussionLikeSymptoms says:

    Couldnt we have gotten the same return for Emelin instead of Tinordi?

  3. twilighthours says:

    Good for Tinordi. Hopefully he gets a fair crack at a career.

    MB and MT need to take some responsibility for devaluing this player’s worth.

    • HabinBurlington says:

      The smug look on MT’s face will be his version of responsiblity. To hell with MT and ever taking responsibility. DId he ever take responsibility for costing us the series against the Canes years ago. That arrogant P.O.S. will never take responsibility for anything.

      Sorry but I am pissed.

  4. monmick says:

    Quick! Someone go wake up Front at the saloon….

    ~~~> Mathematically eliminated…

  5. Captain aHab says:

    And now we’ll sign Scott to a 4 year extension with a NMC.

    Prepare to be boarded!!

  6. fastfreddy says:

    Either MB is not done and preparing the table for more trades, or he is nuts. One thing to add, if Tinnordi ends up being decent, not even great, then Mr. Molson needs to bring both MB and MT to the carpet for this move.

    CH = Les Glorieux!!!

  7. Luke says:

    I’m going to need a lot of beer to process this.

  8. joewindsor habfan says:

    John Scott (George Parros part deux), MB DESPERATE!

  9. Folks, that right there is a gross mismanagement of assets. I’ve always had faith in MB. Now, after the Emelin contract, DD contract, Plekanec contract, Semin/Kassian, I cannot now have faith in him or his team.

    As for Timmins, his track record isn’t very good either. That was a #22 pick we just gave up for a bag of pucks. Not as bad as Fleisher, but pretty close. So what happens next, we keep losing?

    I’m really pissed! 22 years and counting…

  10. on2ndthought says:

    This looks absolutely like a GM just doing the right thing for a player. Tinordi has been patient, remained positive in what was surely a tough situation. I’m sure MB tried to make a trade that would benefit the organization, failing that; just more or less released the player.

    “a cannonading drive”

  11. Alex_425 says:

    (Not so) patiently waiting for Timo’s reaction to this all-star trade.

  12. HabinBurlington says:

    Well if this shakeup doesn’t knock the Habs out of this slump, nothing will.

    Atta boy MB.

    • bel33 says:

      At least Scott can knock some of the others around in practice as per MT’s orders to light some fires. So sad….

      Edit: I don’t find this funny at all. All this action today is just confusing.

  13. Hockey Bob says:

    This has to be a joke sending down Carr??? and genius MT said his game has slipped. Slipped like Markov,Plekanec etc?

  14. Enigma says:

    Befuddled, perplexed, addled and bewildered…time for a beer!

    What an awful return for Tinordi. Unbelievable. But I suppose that’s the going rate for a guy who spent 99% of his time in the press box.

    ‘Work is the curse of the drinking classes.’ Oscar Wilde

  15. Habby_Haberton says:

    I think MB wanted to take some heat off of Therrien with some bad moves of his own…Classy guy

  16. 24 Cups says:

    So in very indirect terms, this comes down to Montréal moving 1st and 2nd round picks for Scoot and Bartley, two guys who are presently in the AHL and have no upside whatsoever.

    As well, the play of Barberio probably helped push along Tinordi’s exit from Habland.

    I say to hell with it, send DLR back to the AHL and keep Scott as the 13th forward. We have nothing to lose by doing so. Throw him in front of the net on the PP. LOL!


  17. Mister Wrong says:

    Laugher of a trade but it’ll please the enforcer loving crowd.

    • adamkennelly says:

      no it won’t…

      I am part of that crowd…I’d take Gazdic or Peluso but freaking John Scott – never ever ever thought I would see the the fak do you go from zero muscle to the definition of goon?

      WTF is going on here?

  18. Though Carr’s offence had cooled off a bit, he was still working WAY harder than 2/3 of the other forwards. Not sure about this one.

    And I don’t watch the Coyotes–did Scott even have a full-time spot on the fourth line or was he riding the pine?

  20. The Jackal says:

    So like yeah… MB is the master of making lateral or backwards moves.

  21. Rudy says:


  22. HabinBurlington says:

    So we trade a guy whom Mgmt. felt would never clear waivers, for two guys who clear waivers daily.

    I can see why we waited for this particular deal……

  23. The Jackal says:

    MB works his magic again

  24. Captain aHab says:

    Please tell me we’re at least getting a pick for Elliott.

    Prepare to be boarded!!

  25. Never thought I’d see it… but Tinordi literally for a bag of pucks… shame.

    I’m really pissed! 22 years and counting…

  26. Ozmodiar says:


    MT’s gonna love this!

  27. bel33 says:

    “@DanKramerHabs Let’s just say #Habs put Jarred Tinordi on waivers, he got taken, and call it a day.”

  29. Huh says:

    Hey! We need scoring so let’s go get an undrafted D-man….. 🙁

    Please bring Gainey and the Goat back 🙂

  31. monmick says:

    What if MB got John Scott to try to knock some sense into MT?

    • HabinBurlington says:

      Okay, so I’m seeing what this trade is all about. MT is one of those guys who listens to tall people. Scott is a God Like figure to him.

      This is good Monmick.

  32. D Mex says:

    Per TSN690 :
    Victor Bartley (D), with one game in the NHL this season, is coming here from NSH in exchange for Elliot.

    ALWAYS Habs –
    D Mex

  33. Captain aHab says:

    OMG….the guy is like 27 and a d-man, AGAIN. So we just traded a younger d-man with maybe an ounce of upside for a d-man without any?

    Prepare to be boarded!!

  34. haloracer18 says:

    Obviously management sees something in Tinordi’s game or in the person himself that they don’t like. He comes across as a bit of a low-wit guy with lots of hockey background. He’s definitely not afraid to drop the gloves, but that might be a problem if that’s the best part of his game. They’re lucky if they can get a 4th round pick for him. This move comes as a result of the emergence of Barberio. Don’t know why Tampa let him go, bad move by Yzerman. He was succeeding in spite of awful coaching in St John’s.

  36. sevenman says:

    Wonder if Elliot is being flipped on his own…..I might guess Elliot and a roster player

    Forget it….just reading this Bartley thing….Bartley, another defenseman

  37. Strabo says:

    NSH Bartley for Elliott
    per McKenzie

  38. HabinBurlington says:

    So, if Tinordi starts playing nice hockey for Arizona next season, will that mean anything about our Coach and Mgmt team, or will the record speak for itself?

    Granted, I don’t think the record will be getting better between now and then.

  39. Ghosts of the Forum says:

    So a 1st rounder, for a second rounder, for an undrafted player?

    I’m an MB fan, but something seems way off here…

    Is this about clearing contracts? I really hope this is about clearing contracts. Assuming Bartley is on a minor league deal? And Scott can be sent down? So we’ve opened up two roster spots for a trade that is going to be announced that makes sense? Right? RIGHT?!

  40. Un Canadien errant says:

    I’m as disappointed as anyone on the reported poor return for Jarred. I actually wanted draft picks, to stock up for this June.

    But let’s not lose our marbles about John Scott. He’s only in this deal to make the deal work, either to get the salary off the penurious Coyotes’ books, or to take a contract off their 50-contract limit total. Or both.

    He won’t play here, he’s not someone Marc Bergevin covets.

    Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie 2m2 minutes ago

    Pending trade call, NSH sending Victor Bartley to MTL for Stefan Elliott. But not a done deal yet.

    So my resolution for this season is, taking Hal Gill’s injunction to heart, to “let P.K. be P.K.” I’m not going to try to hold him to the standard of Raymond Bourque or Chris Chelios, I’m going to allow him to be himself, with all his glory and his little foibles. (…) I’m celebrating P.K., not trying to improve him. Anymore.

  41. bel33 says:

    Who is Victor Bartley? Google searching now….

  42. Ghosts of the Forum says:

    Victor Bartley for Elliott. Who is he??

  43. Jonson says:

    Elliott seems to be pretty good actually. I really liked Tinordi though and it’s sad they never gave him a chance. Especially after watching Beaulieu last night. As for sending Carr and Ghetto down…..I don’t get it. For De la Rose? 9 points in the AHL. He didn’t impress me last year either. BONE HEAD moves. This team is completely lost.

  44. The Teacher says:

    Hahahaha we get all star John Scott and D Elliot for Tinordi hahahahah

  45. Cal says:

    There. Now the Habs have 2 All Stars!

  46. Ozmodiar says:

    Wild guess time: Flipped to Nashville for Aberg (rhymes with Friberg).

    It’s Swede week. Everything happens in 3’s. (Friberg, DLR, Aberg)

  47. Captain aHab says:

    The Pens wouldn’t do Crosby straight up for Tinordi. But for Elliott, they are totally in.

    Prepare to be boarded!!

  48. 24 Cups says:

    A point to ponder. Posters need to keep in mind that Montreal used up 1st and 2nd round picks to draft Tinordi. That is what on the line here in terms of asset management.


  49. Cal says:

    Woohoo! Georges Laraque II, the sequel.

  50. Hammer says:

    What a sorry state the habs have become. I have followed them since 1966 and with the exception of Gauthierthis is the defining moment in idiocy. They send Carr down and bring up a guy that could not hit the barn door with a basketball. Carr is a scapegoat for a lot of dead wood. lets name a few, Plek’s, DD, Flesh/flash, DSP, Mitchell, who if you add it together have scored less goals in total than Carr has in the past 20 games. I am having a hard time holding down lunch!!!!!!

  51. Alex_425 says:

    Fear not, at least we can take comfort in knowing it couldn’t possibly be the OTHER Scott.

  52. Hobie says:

    LoL. Oh man. This is bad.

    On the other side, good luck to Tinordi.

    I hadn’t been as excited about a player as I was about Tinordi in a decade. It’s too bad. Terrible to lose him but he just wasn’t working out. He looked terrible.

    Is it possible there is more to come though? Bigger deal yet to happen?

  53. Danno says:

    This is like a slow-motion train wreck.
    Where will it end?
    Will the franchise self-destruct and move to Quebec City?

    I am both sad and glad hearing the news regarding Dave Stubbs. I knew something was up because he hadn’t been on HIO at all for the longest time. Another WordPress casualty, I guess. Glad to see he’s found a home at
    Chris Curtis is another HIO casualty that just disappeared when the 2014/15 Habs season ended.
    I’ve believed for a while now that The Gazette is on the verge of shutting down completely. Outsourcing the printing and selling off the equipment and building in NDG. Staff getting let go or forced to retire.
    I think Stu is doing all he can to keep this site going, but he is only one man and I believe the readership and page views have shrunk considerably.
    Question for those of you who have read this far:
    Would you be pro an adults only HIO site? I mean one that allows epithets and less moderating while allowing all the differing views regarding the Habs. I feel this may be the answer because fans are more passionate about the Habs than the players seem to be and having a place to vent without resorting to censoring ourselves.
    What say you?

      Adults are supposed to be able to express themselves without crossing over certain boundaries. I get what you’re suggesting, but already. some very personal attacks, with little to do with hockey, occur. It is a universal problem online, with perceived anonymity exploited by the less scrupulous.

      “a cannonading drive”

    • Gerry Pigeon says:

      I’d be in favour, but I recall you asking me to retract my “disgusting” comments, made firmly with tongue in cheek, regarding blaming Therrien for all matter of situations, including what had happened in Paris. It highlights the issues that arise whenever a lack of oversight and moderation come into play.

      I do agree that an adult site with less moderation of stronger opinions that might not be “Habs friendly” would be a good idea. I just don’t know if it would actually work well, how one would seperate strong, contructive opinions, from simple expletive laced venting, when they become entangled.

      Preparation + Opportunity = Good Luck

      Personally, no. This place is way too personal and vitriolic as it is. Without any boundaries it could easily degenerate into a cesspool.

        Thanks for all the replies.
        There you go, Stu. A quick unscientific poll as to whether or not the moderating is too much or just right.
        In some cases, I think it goes too far. In others, it’s fine.
        I’ve been coming to this site since its inception and have enjoyed it. The commentariat makes it interesting and fun, even though they do repeat themselves quite a bit. I’m guilty of that, too.
