    Canadiens' Paul Byron: To travel with team

    Byron (lower body) will travel with the Canadiens on the upcoming road trip. Sidelined since mid-January, Byron appears close to finally rejoining his teammates in game action. Prior to the injury, the 26-year-old center served as a borderline top-six skater (averaging 13:05 of ice time), and could be destined for a similar role when he rejoins the lineup. While Byron does have 11 points (including eight goals) through 35 games this season, he averages less than a shot per game on the campaign, hardly making him a prime fantasy option even when healthy.

    Canadiens' Paul Byron: Participates in optional practice

    Byron (lower body) took part in Wednesday's optional skate, the first time he's practiced without the supervision of athletic therapists. Byron missed eight games since suffering the injury in mid-January. His presence at practice without supervision is a positive sign for his return, particularly after the Habs lost Brian Flynn for six-to-eight weeks with a lower-body injury. Byron said he'll practice with the full team Thursday and will travel to Buffalo for Friday's game against the Sabres.

    Canadiens' Paul Byron: Scores eighth goal

    Byron scored Montreal's lone goal in Thursday night's 2-1 loss to the Blackhawks. The goal was his career-high eighth of the season. Byron incredibly leads the Canadiens in goals scored (six) since Dec. 1. It's nice that general manager Marc Bergevin's free-agent pickup is working out so well, but he has as many goals as the more highly decorated Tomas Plekanec and David Desharnais. Montreal's scoring problems has led to Byron getting off the fourth line; he's averaging 14:12 in the 19 games since Dec. 1.

    Canadiens' Paul Byron: Steals show in Winter Classic with two goals

    Byron rose to the occasion Friday, potting two goals in a 5-1 win over the Bruins in the Winter Classic, Byron was remarkably efficient in this one, as his production occurred in just 11:25 of ice time. His snipe two minutes into the second frame held up as the game-winner, while his second goal with 1:32 remaining in the third period gave the Habs a 5-1 lead to really ice things. To date, the fourth-liner now has seven goals and two assists in 28 games this season.

    Canadiens' Paul Byron: Scores short-handed in loss

    Canadiens' Paul Byron: Scored lone Habs goal Wednesday

    Byron scored the lone goal of the night for Montreal in a 3-1 loss to the Bruins on Wednesday. He also fired four shots on goal. Whoa, where the heck did the shots come from? Before this one, Byron had just nine SOG in 16 games. In fact, he threw three pucks on net Dec. 3 against Washington, effectively picking up seven of his 13 SOG on the year over two games. Nevertheless, with six points in 17 contests and an average ice time of under 13 minutes per game, Byron won't be cracking many fantasy rosters any time soon.
