Despite the long-term ramifications of the trade that brought him here, there is no denying Shea Weber remains one of the top defensemen in the game. That’s not just due to his reputation, but overall effectiveness, as evidenced by his 500th career point, scored against the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday. Weber Hits Two Milestones

Originally written when Mr. Béliveau passed away, three years ago. The hockey world, and all of Canada, mourns the loss of Jean Béliveau, a man of miraculous talent and total modesty, who played the game better than almost anyone ever has, and who carried himself– on and off the ice– with the grace and humility befitting

The Montreal Canadiens will be getting a familiar face back in their lineup Saturday as goaltender Carey Price is scheduled to get the start against the Buffalo Sabres.

As the Montreal Canadiens keep losing ground, Marc Bergevin’s biggest card to play remains Alex Galchenyuk. Alex Galchenyuk – (Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports) While the Habs’ general manager did come out and say the team wouldn’t give up on the forward after the team’s 1-6-1 start, things are different now.

Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price hasn’t looked like himself recently. Even with his horrible .877 save percentage on the season and Charlie Lindgren impressively showing off the team’s underrated goaltending depth as he recovers from injury, there are literally few other goalies fans should want manning the crease instead.

Montreal Canadiens head coach Claude Julien – (Photo: Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports) It’s technically two steps forward and one back for the Montreal Canadiens. That’s progress, right? After rattling off two victories against the New York Rangers and Ottawa Senators, scoring 13 goals in the process, the Habs appeared listless on Thursday night, losing 6-3

Earlier this week, Sportsnet reported that the Vegas Golden Knights have given Vadim Shipachyov permission to seek a trade. Vegas has nine defensemen on one-way contracts while Shipachyov has a two-way deal. This means that he does not require waivers to be sent down, which makes him the most logical choice to be moved back

Ex-Montreal Canadien Mark Streit has officially announced his retirement, bringing an end to the ultimate underdog career. The way his NHL career ended, his contract being terminated with the Habs, will probably end up being one of the biggest lowlights (along with the complete 2010-11 season he missed due to injury). Nevertheless, there are plenty

There are positives to focus on after their latest defeat to the Anaheim Ducks, which resulted in only the fourth seven-game losing streak in team history. For example, the Habs set a new team-record 30

22 years ago this past Saturday, the Montreal Canadiens retired #1 in honor of iconic goaltender Jacques Plante. Originally written in 2012, here’s a look back at his lasting impact on the league.
