  • Canadiens' Al Montoya: Lands on IR
    By RotoWire Staff

    Montoya (concussion) is listed on injured reserve, per the NHL's official media site. This IR designation for Montoya comes as no surprise since the goalie doesn't have a set timetable for his return. Unfortunately for the Habs, elite backstop Carey Price (lower body) is not progressing from his own injury as quickly as he'd hoped, but Charlie Lindgren has stepped up in a major way with a 1.39 GAA and .957 save percentage to supplement three wins over five games this month, and there's probably no harm in dropping Montoya for the surging youngster.

  • Montoya will be sidelined indefinitely due to a concussion. It's unclear when exactly Montoya sustained the concussion, as he hasn't seen game action since Nov. 4, making it even more difficult to come up with any sort of timetable for the veteran keeper's return. The Canadiens will have to lean on Charlie Lindgren and Zach Fucale while Montoya and Carey Price (lower body) remain on the shelf.

  • Canadiens' Al Montoya: Sustains upper-body injury
    By RotoWire Staff

    Montoya is dealing with an upper-body ailment and will not be available against the Sabres on Saturday. Without Montoya available -- and Carey Price (lower body) still working his way back -- the Habs were forced to recall Zach Fucale from AHL Laval under emergency conditions. The 30-year-old Montoya hasn't played since Nov. 2, so it's unclear whether he suffered his injury in that contest or if it was during a practice session. Given the excellence of Charlie Lindgren so far, Montoya probably wasn't going to be between the pipes versus Buffalo anyway.

  • Canadiens' Al Montoya: Notches win with 19 saves
    By RotoWire Staff

    Montoya made 19 saves in a 5-4 overtime win over Winnipeg on Saturday night. He was pressed into duty when Carey Price declared himself hurt this week. Montoya was solid, but not spectacular on Saturday night, so don't read much into the win. He could get the team's next start Sunday against Chicago, too.

  • Canadiens' Al Montoya: Will start Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Montoya will work between the pipes as Saturday's road starter against the Jets, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports. Carey Price is dealing with a lower-body injury, which will keep him out Saturday. Montreal has two games this weekend, so Montoya was probably going to get a start regardless. The Jets figure to pose a significant challenge for the backup tender, as they've won three straight and currently sit in second place within the Central Division.
