  • Canadiens' Phillip Danault: Scores in Saturday's loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (8:30 am ET) Danault scored his 10th goal of the season in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to Buffalo.

    When Alex Galchenyuk returned from a knee injury, he centered the top line, but Montreal coach Michel Therrien deemed that assignment too much, too soon for the center who had missed 18 games. So, Danault was moved to the first line with Max Pacioretty and Alexander Radulov, a combination that meshed well during Galchenyuk's absence. Before Saturday's goal, Danault's previous score came six games ago when he was filling in for the then-injured Galchenyuk on the top line. You can spot the pattern; Danault's offensive burst in December/January was fueled by his placement on the top line. Take advantage of his favorable assignment now, because Galchenyuk will soon be back there.

    Canadiens' Phillip Danault: Little power-play time Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/21/17) Danault was moved to the Canadiens' top line for Friday's game against the Devils but had just 43 seconds on the power play in Montreal's 3-1 win.

    Typically, centers on a top line will receive ice time on the power play, but that wasn't the case Friday when Montreal had seven power-play opportunities. Alex Galchenyuk, only recently back from an 18-game absence due to a knee injury, had been dropped off the first line for the game, However, he remained a power-play staple, scoring a goal with two assists over 5:14 of man-advantage ice time. When Montreal coach Michel Therrien announced he was moving Danault to the top line, he inferred it was a temporary state until Galchenyuk got himself back to the level he was pre-injury. Judging from Galchenyuk's performance Friday, we might see Danault back on the third line Saturday night against Buffalo.

    Canadiens' Phillip Danault: Promoted to top line

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/20/17) Danault has been moved to Montreal's top line, centering Max Pacioretty and Alexander Radulov, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports. You can expect those three together on the ice Friday night against the Devils.

    Danault had evolved into the No. 1 center while Alex Galchenyuk rehabbed from a knee injury and achieved a certain level of comfort as the team's top center. The benefits of centering the top line are obvious -- more shifts with more offensively skilled forwards and likely more power-play ice time. Canadiens coach Michel Therrien dropped Galchenyuk from the top line, admitting he probably should have brought him back following his injury at a more measured pace.

    Canadiens' Phillip Danault: Sets up three in win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/14/17) Danault set up three goals in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Rangers.

    Increased ice time with all the injuries in Montreal has allowed Danault to show his offensive chops and he has delivered 10 points (three goals, seven assists) in his last nine games. Danault is talented, but he won't be able to continue to deliver at this pace when the Habs return to full complement. But until then, he could be a cheap fill for your roster.

    Canadiens' Phillip Danault: Makes impact against Jets

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/12/17) Danault scored two even-strength goals and received 20:16 of ice during Wednesday's win over Winnipeg.

    As long as he's playing with Max Pacioretty and Alexander Radulov in all situations, Danault's fantasy value receives a huge boost. The 23-year-old forward has also been solid dating back to mid-December with four goals, 12 points and 29 shots through his past 16 games. Danault is worth a speculative add in deeper seasonal leagues and is a potential low-priced flier in daily contests when Montreal lands in a favorable matchup.

  • November 23, 2014: Hawks' Danault Gets Good Reviews In Debut
    Danault saw a little more than 11 minutes of ice time on Saturday in his NHL debut including time on the power play, CSN Chicago reports.Blackhawks' coach Joel Quenneville was impressed with Danault's play, but will need to improve on his face-off percentage which was only 44 percent against the Oilers. "He had the puck a lot," said Quenneville. "He was around it and he was tenacious. He did a real good job." Danault will probably be up with the Hawks until Andrew Shaw returns from his upper-body injury.

Danault racked up three goals and seven assists through 14 games with AHL Rockford, and should slot in on the third or fourth line with Andrew Shaw (upper body) sidelined once again.
