  • Canadiens' David Desharnais: Scores for second straight game

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/3/16) Desharnais potted a goal on three shots in Saturday night's 4-3 loss to the Panthers.

    Now that Montreal's postseason aspirations have finally been put to rest, Desharnais is starting to heat up a bit. The goal was his second in as many games and third point in the previous four. With Montreal set to drastically make over its forwards in the offseason, Desharnais is not guaranteed of anything other than the $3.5 million due on the final year of his contract.

    Canadiens' David Desharnais: Lights lamp in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/1/16) Desharnais scored a goal and had three shots on net in Thursday night's 3-0 win over Tampa Bay. It was his first goal since returning from a foot injury four games ago and just his second in the previous 21 games played.

    Desharnais is finishing out a forgettable season. The 5-foot-7 center is headed toward the worst of his career, with just 28 points (10 goals, 18 assists) in 61 starts. His line performed well Thursday, accounting for two goals and eight of Montreal's 24 shots, but there are too many nights when he's invisible.

    Canadiens' David Desharnais: Third-line duty in return

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/25/16) Desharnais returned from a foot injury Thursday and had 15:50 of ice time in a 4-3 loss to the Red Wings. He began the game centering the third line and was later moved to wing to make way for rookie Michael McCarron.

    Nearly 16 minutes of playing time and Desharnais didn't get off a shot. The seven-year veteran's return gives Montreal another experienced hand on a roster full of plucky AHL-ers, but the problem for Desharnais is that he's developed little chemistry with the younger guys. Head coach Michel Therrien still favors his veterans -- how else to explain Torrey Mitchell (17:54) and Paul Byron (16:08) getting this much ice time -- so Desharnais will get 20-25 shifts per game.

    Canadiens' David Desharnais: Slated to return Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/24/16) Desharnais (foot) is slated to play Thursday against the Red Wings, John Bartlett of sportsnet.ca reports.

    Per the report, look for Desharnais to play center on a line with Michael McCarron and and Stefan Matteau on Thursday. Desharnais checks back into the Habs' lineup with 26 points in 57 games to date.

    Canadiens' David Desharnais: No longer on IR

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/23/16) Desharnais (foot) isno longer listed on injured reserve.

    Desharnais' activation off of injured reserve furthers the storyline forthput by coach Michel Therrien that he would return to the lineup Thursday. While he slotted in on the top line during practice Wednesday, it's unlikely the winger will fill that same role against the Red Wings. The team should confirm his status on game day, but everything certainly seems to point towards Desharnais rejoining the lineup.
