Plekanec notched an assist and an empty-net goal in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Islanders. You won't see these two points on many of Plekanec's highlight reels, but hey, they all count, and they have the Czech center on surprising scoring pace. The 14 points he's collected in 15 games would qualify as the highest scoring rate of his career if he can keep it up.
Plekanec had three assists in Friday night's 7-2 win over Buffalo. Plekanec has points in four straight (two goals, four assists) and has registered at least one point in six of the first eight games.
Plekanec had four shots on net and scored a goal in Saturday night's 4-1 win over Detroit. He's tied for the league lead with five goals. Plekanec, who recently signed a two-year contract extension, is loving his hockey life on the Habs' top line with Max Pacioretty and Brendan Gallagher. The trio have combined for 16 points through six games.
Plekanec signed a two-year, $12 million contract extension with the Canadiens on Friday. Plekanec is now locked up through the 2017-18 campaign, which is good news for the Canadiens, as he's been highly productive for the team since joining the club in 2010. Last season the 32-year-old forward tallied 60 points (26 goals, 34 assists) in 82 games, good for second most on the team. He's locked in as a top-six forward for the Canadiens, and should remain highly productive for the duration of his contract.
Plekanec won 16-of-24 faceoffs, skated a forward-high 20:07 and scored an empty-net goal in Saturday night's 4-2 win over the Bruins. Plekanec finished off a game the Canadiens dominated as the score makes it appear much closer than it was -- his goal made it 4-1 before the Bruins scored a late marker. He picks up from last year, skating with competent linemates -- Max Pacioretty and Brendan Gallagher -- that will generate plenty of scoring opportunities for Montreal.
