Nic Deslauriers scored a hat trick for the Ducks last night, the fastest in team history.

Basu with a good piece on the "Rookie Wall," something Claude Julien believes is a thing, but Nick Suzuki does not.

Sure lends itself to the belief that Julien is not great with young players.

Quote:
“I know I haven’t had a point in a while, but I think any player will go through kind of ups and downs through a season,” he said Tuesday morning. “I think I’ve been playing pretty good hockey, I just haven’t found the scoresheet. Just coming at each game as a new opportunity, so just looking forward.”

What did Suzuki do a few hours after saying that? Playing on a line with Artturi Lehkonen and Jordan Weal, Suzuki had his best game in weeks. It was almost as if he took a sledgehammer to that wall.

With Suzuki on the ice at five-on-five, the Canadiens controlled 81.8 percent of the shots. By that metric alone, it was Suzuki’s best game of the season. But it was more than just numbers. There was tangible evidence that he had no interest in being labeled and defined by this intangible notion of a wall.

Lots of smoke around the Habs being close to signing forward Konstantin Okulov, who is Romanov's teammate in Russia.

Known as an ok sized perimetre forward who passes well. Not a standout guy but could be another Lehkonen middle 6 type.

Things are a little quieter about them signing former Wing and Romanov's defence partner Alexey Marchenko, but the Habs could certainly use depth on the right side if Folin doesn't return.

Habs re-sign D Gustav Olofsson. He's always hurt.

Habs sign former second rounder Jesse Ylonen, a slick skating second generation pro. Always room for a righthanded shot.

Eric Engels of Sportsnet let it slip it's a foregone conclusion Kovalchuk will be back. I think with the season fucked Kovalchuk might prefer to return to Washington to win a cup, but I'm sure the Habs will try.
