Gignac had two blocks over 14:54 of ice time in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Capitals.

Gignac made his NHL debut after signing a two-way contract with the Canadiens on Sunday. The 26-year-old centered the second line, flanked by Josh Anderson and Joel Armia, and won six of 12 draws. Gignac was a scoring machine at AHL Laval, logging 14 goals and 28 assists over 43 games with the Rocket. The Sean Monahan trade to Winnipeg over the All-Star break opened a spot in the top six that Gignac could fill down the stretch. The fact that he's no longer on an AHL-only contract suggests he may finish out the season with the parent club.
