Can Canadiens’ Romanov Finally Fill the Hole Left by Markov?

Since Andrei Markov’s departure from the Montreal Canadiens in 2017, there has been a hole on the defensive left side that management has had a hard time filling.

Kotkaniemi Could Be Canadiens’ Game-Changer in Penguins Series

It’s been a roller coaster ride for Jesperi Kotkaniemi this season; it started with high hopes, but poor play, loss of confidence, and then being sent to Laval Rocket cast a cloud over it. He started getting his game back and working hard to improve with coach Joel Bouchard and becoming a point-per-game player in Laval, before suffering a serious spleen injury that ended his season… or so we thought.

Today’s Hockey Notes

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, - Maybe it wouldn’t make the slightest bit of difference across this country, but maybe it would. Maybe some of those invited to participate would decline because they do not believe in the message. Shame on them, but that would not scuttle the initiative. Because when 12 NHL teams convene in Toronto in just over a week, their 24 goaltenders will all be wearing masks when they go to work. And when the 12 other tournament entrants convene in Edmo...
