  • Canadiens' Paul Byron: Posts shootout winner Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/21/17) Byron beat the Rangers' Henrik Lundqvist for the game-winning goal in Tuesday's shootout, but he didn't hit the scoresheet over his 15:03 of ice time.

    Byron also took as many shots in the shootout as he did in all of regulation, which is to say: one. The 27-year-old forward has missed the scoresheet in nine straight games and owns just two points through his last 16 contests, so fantasy owners are likely to find more appeal elsewhere.

    Canadiens' Paul Byron: Multi-point night Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/15/17) Byron had a goal and an assist in a season-high 20:02 of ice time in Montreal's 5-4 win over the Rangers on Saturday.

    The goal wasn't pretty -- Byron's backhander bounced off a couple of bodies before ending up behind New York's Henrik Lundqvist -- but artistry is not a fantasy category. Sometimes it's about being in the right place at the right time and Byron's showed a knack for that in 2016-17, producing a career year with 13 goals and 14 assists in 43 games. That newfound offense has led to more ice time for the 5-foot-6 forward, who got more shifts Saturday after Andrew Shaw was bounced in the first period due to a game misconduct.

    Canadiens' Paul Byron: Returns to action Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/10/17) Byron returned to the active lineup Monday after missing one game due to a concussion. He assisted on Montreal's lone goal and received 17:08 of ice time in a 4-1 loss to Washington.

    Byron bounced back quickly from his injury, which had been speculated to be a concussion, and was back in a top-six role. The assist came on the power play, his third point on the man advantage, as Byron has played a greater-than-usual role with several injuries to Montreal's key forwards. He's made great use of this opportunity, posting career highs in goals (12) and points (23) while scoring on 23.5% of his shots.

    Canadiens' Paul Byron: Cleared to return

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/9/17) Byron (upper body) will slot back into the lineup against Washington on Monday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    Byron missed just one game due to this ailment and will look to pick up his hot streak after registering four points in his last five contests. After being an infrequent power-play contributor to start the season, the winger has averaged 1:28 of ice time per game with the man advantage and figures to resume that role versus the Capitals.

    Canadiens' Paul Byron: Practices Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/8/17) Byron (upper body) skated on his own Sunday morning, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    The team didn't have a scheduled practice, but Byron got some skating in on his own. It's a sign of progress after he was limited to off-ice activity. More on the forward's status should surface Monday, but his presence on the ice Sunday suggest he could be a go.
