    • Habs' McCarron Shifting To Center

      News: Michael McCarron, who was drafted as a right-winger, made the shift to center last season in juniors and is expected to play the pivot for AHL St. John's this season, the Montreal Gazette reports.
      Analysis: It never hurts to add some versatility, but it remains to be seen if Michael McCarron, the Canadiens' first-round draft pick in 2013, will stay at center in the NHL. He's ostensibly competing for a spot on the NHL roster, but is expected to start the season in the AHL, where he can work on his foot speed and improve using his hands in close.

      Analysis: Michael McCarron, Montreal's first-round pick (25th overall) in the 2013 draft, had an impressive 18 goals and 16 assists in 24 games with the Knights. He made an immediate impact for Oshawa, scoring a goal and assisting on two others in his first game with the Generals.
    • Canadiens' McCarron Gets Team USA Invite

      News: Michael McCarron has received an invitation to Team USA's final selection camp for the World Junior Hockey Champsionship, the Montreal Gazette reports.
      Analysis: Michael McCarron's invite is a no-brainer. He's scored 13 goals with 13 assists and is plus-10 in 17 games for the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League. Drafted in 2013 with a eye toward being a power forward, McCarron's slimmed down since draft night and has made the move to center. He's skating better and improved his commitment to the game.
    • Montreal's McCarron Red Hot To Start OHL Season

      News: Michael McCarron is off to a terrific start for London (OHL) with 19 points in his first 11 games.
      Analysis: Michael McCarron missed London's first seven games due to a shoulder injury that he suffered in the preseason, but he's been on fire since he returned. It's a great sign for a player who struggled to the tune of just 14 goals and 34 points in 66 games in his first OHL season. McCarron was so bad last season that he didn't find himself on the list of our top 100 prospects to begin the year. That seems awful likely to change when the rankings are updated in mid-to-late December.
