Top Chris Wideman News

  • Canadiens' Chris Wideman: Point-per-game pace in last 12

    Wideman had a goal and two assists in Thursday's 7-4 win over the Devils.

    His goal a 1:11 started a third-period frenzy that pushed starter Andrew Hammond out of the net. Wideman has been particularly prolific in his last 12 games, putting up 12 points (two goals, 10 helpers). Many players have responded well to the teachings of new coach Marty St. Louis and that includes Wideman, who seems to be thriving.

  • Canadiens' Chris Wideman: Labeled healthy scratch

    Wideman will be a healthy scratch Saturday against the Lightning.

    There is no injury at play with Wideman's expected absence Saturday. He's simply sitting to make room for the return of Ryan Poehling (upper body). The team's decision to scratch Wideman is a bit of an odd one considering he has nine points in his last 10 games.

  • Canadiens' Chris Wideman: Sitting out Saturday

    Wideman (undisclosed) will miss Saturday's game against the Lightning, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

  • Canadiens' Chris Wideman: Widens scoring streak

    Wideman scored a goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 7-4 loss to the Panthers.

    Wideman opened the scoring just 2:32 in, extending his point streak to four games. The veteran defenseman's second-period helper was his ninth point in the last nine games, as Wideman has been a surprisingly consistent source of offense recently. He's hanging around on waivers in the vast majority of leagues, so fantasy managers in need of scoring from the blue line should consider giving Wideman a look after this latest strong showing.

  • Canadiens' Chris Wideman: Nabs helper in shootout loss

    Wideman logged an assist and went plus-2 in Sunday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Devils.

    Wideman has been productive lately with seven assists in his last eight games. Five of those helpers have come with the man advantage. The 32-year-old is a bit of a power-play specialist at this point in his career. He's up to a career-high 20 points, 12 of which have been power-play assists. He's added 62 shots on net, 49 PIM, 36 hits, 35 blocked shots and a minus-20 rating in 53 outings.

  • Canadiens' Chris Wideman: Adds another PPA

    Wideman had a power-play assist, one shot on goal and two blocked shots in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Maple Leafs.

    Wideman, as the point man on the power play, directed a pass to Cole Caufield, who wristed a bullet past Erik Kallgren in the second period. Five of Wideman's last six points have been power-play helpers. The blueliner is up to 19 points (11 on the power play) through 52 games.

  • Canadiens' Chris Wideman: Racks up another PP assist

    Wideman had a power-play assist and one blocked shot in Thursday's 4-3 loss to the Panthers.

    Montreal's power play has been hot of late, and Wideman is part of the success. He has five assists in the last six games with four of those helpers with the man-advantage unit. He has 10 power-play assists and 18 points overall through 51 games.

  • Canadiens' Chris Wideman: Bags two apples Sunday

    Wideman dished out two assists -- one on the power play -- in Sunday's 4-3 overtime win over the Flyers.

    Wideman assisted on both of Nick Suzuki's second-period goals, the first of which came on the power play. The veteran defenseman is making the most of his prominent role with the extra man, as three of Wideman's four points over the last four games have come in that special teams situation.

  • Canadiens' Chris Wideman: Sets up two PP markers

    Wideman had two power-play assists over 11:26 of ice time in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Oilers.

    Wideman had a hand in both of Montreal's man-advantage goals, picking up a secondary helper on Brendan Gallagher's first-period score then a primary assist on Nick Suzuki's game-winner in the second. The points were the first in seven games for Wideman, who entered the contest with one point over the previous 16 contests. The 32-year-old blueliner has two goals, 13 points (six on the power play), 51 shots, 32 hits, 26 blocked shots, 45 PIM and a minus-18 rate over 43 games.

  • Canadiens' Chris Wideman: Supplies power-play helper

    Wideman logged a power-play assist and went plus-2 in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Golden Knights.

    Wideman had the secondary helper on a Tyler Toffoli goal in the second period. The 32-year-old Wideman had gone six games without a point, though a one-game suspension and five missed contests in the COVID-19 protocols made that dry spell date back to Dec. 4. The American blueliner has 10 points (four on the power play) with 33 shots on net, a minus-7 rating and 26 PIM through 26 outings. He's most often served in a third-pairing role, as a power-play specialist, and a source of grit.

  • Canadiens' Chris Wideman: Facing potential suspension

    Wideman will have a hearing with the Department of Player Safety on Thursday for his headbutt of the Bruins' Erik Haula.

    Considering the league classified the incident as headbutting, which is well outside the definition of a "hockey play", fantasy players should probably be expecting the defenseman to serve at least a one-game suspension, though it could certainly be longer. Assuming Wideman is unavailable for Thursday's matchup with Chicago, Alexander Romanov figures to step into the lineup in his stead.

  • Canadiens' Chris Wideman: Suspended one game

    Wideman was suspended for one game Thursday.

    Wideman was suspended for headbutting Erik Haula in Wednesday's game against Boston. The suspension is effective immediately for the length of one game. He will miss Thursday's contest in Chicago. Alexander Romanov is likely to see an expanded role in Wideman's absence.

  • Canadiens' Chris Wideman: Healthy, at practice Sunday

    Wideman cleared COVID-19 protocols and practiced Sunday, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports.

    The defenseman, who has nine points in 22 games this season, hasn't played since Dec. 11 due to a personal issue and COVID-19 protocols. Who returns from protocols will dictate Wideman's playing time, but he should be in the lineup Wednesday at Boston.

  • Canadiens' Chris Wideman: Designated for COVID-19 protocols

    Wideman (personal) was placed in the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Monday.

    Wideman had missed the club's previous two contests while attending to a personal matter but now should be expected to miss the club's upcoming three-game road trip, though he could link up with the team at some point if he meets certain protocol requirements. In 22 appearances this season, the veteran blueliner has notched nine points and remains on pace to top his career-best 17 points set back in 2016-17 with Ottawa.
