      Canadiens' Paul Byron: Nets two points in win

      Byron scored his first goal of the season and had an assist in Friday's win over the Flames. It was just the second game of the season for Byron, who scored his goal Friday shorthanded. Bryon is coming a 19-point season with the Flames in 2014-15 and will likely be used in a fourth-line role with Montreal. The 26-year-old was a solid scorer in the AHL, but unless he grows into a more secured role with the Habs, it's hard to see him being of much value in fantasy.
