Canadiens Game Day: Jeff Petry fills Man Mountain role in OT victory

  Canadiens Game Day: Jeff Petry fills Man Mountain role in OT victory Jeff Petry has to be the new Man Mountain on the Canadiens’ blue line for the next little while and he handled the role very well Thursday night at the Bell Centre. The Canadiens announced at the morning skate in Brossard that captain Shea Weber has been placed on the injured-reserve list with a lower-body injury and will miss at least a week. Petry filled the void Thursday night against the Anaheim Ducks, scoring in overtime to give the Canadiens a 3-2 win. Petry also had an assist and finished plus-1 while logging a team-high 27:25 of ice time. Petry’s wrist shot that beat Ducks goalie John Gibson high to the blocker side only 25 seconds into OT was a thing of beauty.

The Montreal Canadiens traded defenceman Marco Scandella to St. Louis on Tuesday for the Blues ’ second-round pick in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft and a conditional fourth-round pick in 2021. Scandella has 12 points (4-8) in 51 games this season. The Blues also placed defenceman Jay Bouwmeester

The St. Louis Blues acquired defensemen Marco Scandella from the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday in exchange for a 2020 second-round draft pick The team placed him on long-term injured reserve Tuesday and assigned defenseman Niko Mikkola to the San Antonio Rampage of the AHL.

Another defenseman is on the move. The Montreal Canadiens tradedMarco Scandella to the St. Louis Blues in exchange for a 2020 second-round pick and a conditional 2021 fourth-round pick. If Scandella re-signs or the Blues win two playoff rounds, the Canadiens will receive the fourth. Otherwise, they will only get the second. Montreal will also retain 50 percent of Scandella’s $4M cap hit.

This kind of a return is huge for the Canadiens, given that they only paid a fourth-round pick to get Scandella in the first place. That move came just over a month ago, when the Buffalo Sabres moved the defenseman and flipped the return for Michael Frolik. Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports that Montreal GM Marc Bergevin did try to extend the pending unrestricted free agent, but Scandella wanted to wait until the end of the season to discuss any contract.

Canadiens place captain Shea Weber on IR with lower-body injury

  Canadiens place captain Shea Weber on IR with lower-body injury The 34-year-old defenseman has turned back the clock with 13 goals and 34 points through 55 games, but now he's shelved amid a rough season for Montreal.Weber has been a shining light in an otherwise dreary season for the Canadiens, who currently have a 25-23-7 record despite going 7-3 in their last 10. The 34-year-old defenseman has turned back the clock with 13 goals and 34 points through 55 games, undoubtedly serving as the team’s leader both on and off the ice.

The Montreal Canadiens have traded defenceman Marco Scandella to the St. Louis Blues for a 2020 second-round pick and a conditional fourth-rounder in The conditions on the Scandella trade : If STL re-signs him prior to Oct. 7, 2020, or if they win two rounds and he plays in at least half of the games

Bergevin acquired defenceman Marco Scandella from the Buffalo Sabres on Jan. 2 for a fourth-round pick in the 2020 draft. On Tuesday afternoon, a little less than seven weeks later, Bergevin traded Scandella to the St. Louis Blues for a second-round pick in 2020 and a conditional fourth-round pick

Even with Shea Weber returning for the Canadiens, Montreal’s chances to make the playoffs this season are slim. After a promising start, injuries and inconsistency have plagued the team, making any expiring contracts trade bait. Scandella could be just the first sent out of Montreal in the coming week.

For the Blues, they add a depth defenseman with plenty of experience on the penalty kill. As the Blues prepare to defend their championship, they needed another reliable option on the blue line after losing Jay Bouwmeester. Scandella is exactly that, especially in the limited role he’ll have to play in St. Louis.
