In today’s Journal de Montréal, Marc de Foy writes that Canadiens defenceman Roman Hamrlik is in paradise playing in Montreal. While he is surprised by his team’s performance this season, Hamrlik is even more impressed with the fans that have the Bell Centre rocking on a nightly basis. As the article says, he hasn’t seen anything yet. Wait until the playoffs.
Francois Gagnon of La Presse writes that Alex Kovalev could shatter some long-standing Canadiens records this season if he continues to put up points on the power play. With 16 goals and 26 assists with the man advantage, Kovalev is within four goals of Yvan Cournoyer’s record of 20 set in 1966-67. Kovalev is also eight points shy of Mats Naslund’s points record set in 1985-86 when he had 19 goals and 31 assists on the power play.
Here’s a look at the top 20 prospects within the Canadiens’ organization courtesy of Hockey’s Future.
