    Canadiens' Phillip Danault: Scores in Saturday's loss

    Danault scored a goal on his only shot in Saturday night's 5-2 loss to the Rangers. Danault, Chicago's first-round draft pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, has made little impact outside the face-off circle (57.3% on draws) since joining Montreal 15 games. Saturday's goal was just his second tally and he's taken a mere 14 shots. He's going to be in the lineup every night over the final six games, but as fourth-liner, limit your expectations.

    Canadiens' Phillip Danault: Scores first with new team

    Danault scored his first goal since being acquired by Montreal in Tuesday night's 4-3 overtime win over Dallas. He finished with two shots on net, three hits and a blocked shot in 14:52. Danault's primarily skating on the fourth line, but his ability at the faceoff circle gets him more shifts than an average bottom-liner. He won 9-of-12 on Tuesday and has won 48-of-69 draws (69.6 percent) in his six games with the Habs. He's going to be active every night, so there's an opportunity for him to earn shifts with more skilled players.

    Canadiens' Phillip Danault: Demoted to fourth line

    Danault was demoted to the fourth line for Wednesday night's shootout loss to Anaheim, the Montreal Gazette reports. The recently acquired Danault (from Chicago) had shown some skill at the dot, winning 23 of 29 in his first two games with Montreal, but his minus-3 rating got him dropped to fourth-line winger. He had one hit and no shots while finishing an even in plus/minus in 11:30 of ice time.

    Canadiens' Phillip Danault: Makes impact in debut

    Danault won 15-of-19 faceoffs in 14:17 TOI in Saturday night's 4-1 win over the Maple Leafs. Danault, who centered Montreal's speed line with Paul Byron and Jacob De La Rose, made his debut with the Canadiens after he was acquired from Chicago the day before. The 23-year-old Quebec native was buried on the Blackhawks, but he'll have an every-night opportunity with Montreal, which currently sits 12th in the Eastern Conference.

    Canadiens' Phillip Danault: Making debut for Montreal

    Danault, who was acquired by Montreal from Chicago on Friday, is in the active lineup for Saturday's game against Toronto, Mark Masters of TSN reports. Danault, who has a goal and four assists in 30 games with the Blackhawks, will skate on the third line with Jacob De La Rose and Paul Byron.

    Canadiens' Phillip Danault: Dealt to Montreal

    The Blackhawks traded Danault and a 2018 second-round pick to the Canadiens in exchange for Tomas Fleischmann and Dale Weise on Friday. The Blackhawks have decided to go all in this season, and Danault is the latest victim of Chicago's quest for the cup. Danault, a former first-round pick, has been decent in a limited role with the Blackhawks this season, notching five points (one goal, four assists) and 48 shots on goal while averaging 12:51 of ice time in 30 games. The 23-year-old center likely won't ever develop into a gifted scorer, but will be a strong bottom-six forward for the Canadiens, and an asset on the penalty kill and in the faceoff circle.

    Blackhawks' Phillip Danault: Nets first career goal

    Danault registered a goal Friday night against the Sabres, which counted as the game-winner and first score of his NHL career. Leading up to his goal, Danault took the puck from center ice and left Sabres defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen in the dust after a slick stickhandling move. Remember, Danault missed more than two months of the season after undergoing hip surgery so it's refreshing to see him get on the board. We're talking about the 26th overall draft selection from 2011, lauded for his relentless work ethic and determination on the rink. With so much offensive talent in Chicago, it's tough for opponents to consistently keep them in check and Danault should continue to bloom while shadowing a supreme center talent like Jonathan Toews.

    Blackhawks' Phillip Danault: Recalled from AHL Rockford

    Danault was recalled back to Chicago on Friday, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports.

The 22-year-old registered two points in his six games with AHL Rockford following offseason hip surgery.

  • Blackhawks' Danault (Hip) Undergoes Surgery

    News: Phillip Danault underwent hip surgery Monday to repair a torn labrum, Brian Hedger of NHL.com reports.
    Analysis: Phillip Danault is expected to be out of hockey activities for roughly four months, meaning he'll likely miss a solid chunk of the first half of the season. Danault spent the vast majority of the 2014-15 campaign with the Rockford of the AHL, and that's where he figures to report once healthy next season. In two appearances for the Blackhawks, Danault did not record any fantasy-relevant statistics.
  • Hawks Reassign Danault

    News: The Blackhawks reassigned Phillip Danault to AHL Rockford on Monday, Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
    Analysis: Phillip Danault appeared in two games with the Hawks, but failed to crack the score sheet. His departure likely means Andrew Shaw (upper body) is ready to return to the lineup, and even though it may not be this year, it's highly unlikely that we've seen the last of Danault at the NHL level.
