Montreal Canadiens trade captain Max Pacioretty


"He's a cerebral player, he thinks the game well". "I will not go into details, but that's a fact, yes". Since the outset of the 2011-12 campaign, only eight players have scored more goals than Pacioretty, but he's more than kept pace with the likes of Evgeni Malkin, Tyler Seguin, Jamie Benn and Patrick Kane. The 27-year-extinct ahead, selected by Detroit in the second spherical (No. 60) of the 2009 NHL Draft, had two draw (one aim, one aid) in the Stanley Cup Playoffs closing season, helping Vegas attain the Cup Closing, the build it lost to the Washington Capitals in 5 games.He became traded to Vegas by Detroit on February 26 for a first-spherical purchase in the 2018 NHL Draft, a second-spherical purchase in the 2019 NHL Draft and a second-spherical purchase in the 2021 NHL Draft. We've also come to find out that those who work within the Summerlin practice facility that doubles as the suburban headquarters of the Vegas Golden Knights are also willing to roll the dice. From 2011-12 on through last season, he was the Canadiens leader in goals, assists, points, power play goals and scored an incredible 43 game-winning tallies.

In return, Montreal got a proven veteran in Tatar.

The Attack GM said he didn't want to jump the gun with any decisions Monday regarding the future of his junior club in relation to the Suzuki trade, and the possibility Owen Sound could play out the string in 2018-19 without their leading scorer from a year ago. Bergevin calls him "the key piece" in the transaction.

As for Suzuki, he was the Golden Knights' first round pick (13th overall) in the 2017 NHL Draft.

Suzuki has yet to make his National Hockey League debut.

Bergevin said Vegas general manager George McPhee was reluctant to give up Suzuki, but realized it was part of the price for adding a 30-goal scorer. How will we score? The big thing for No. 37 is managing his workload during the regular season to get the best out of him, and then avoiding the injuries that have begun to nag at him over the last couple of years.

"We have a lot of good young players that we can build around and we're going to continue to do that".

"Max was a great Montreal Canadien and he always will be a great Montreal Canadien", Molson said. I can't say exactly where he'll be on the day he ends up playing for the Montreal Canadiens, but I'm confident that he's going to help us. "They want to win and as a player you couldn't be more happy to be in an organization that wants to win right now".

In Their Words: "A lot of the guys are young and learning and they're going to keep getting better, and obviously there are a lot of young guys that are down in Providence that are kind of pushing for a spot as well". In 2015, the American winger was named the the 29th captain in Canadiens history.

Jamil Lessard, a businessman in his 40s, said the trade was a good move for the future of the team.

"That's not really something that's crossed my mind all that much", said Gallagher when asked about the captaincy. Regardless of who's wearing the "C" - if we even have a "C" - for us as a group, it will be important for us to have internal competition and accountability.

Meanwhile, the Canadiens re-signed forward Michael McCarron to a one-year, two-way contract on Monday.
