Top Denis Gurianov News

  • Predators' Denis Gurianov: Watching from press box

    Gurianov was a healthy scratch for the third time in his last four games Saturday against the Blues.

    Gurianov's star has really faded since recording a career-best 31 points with Dallas two seasons ago. He has just two points in 13 games in his first season in Nashville and spends most nights watching from the press box. Currently riding out a one-year, $850,000 contract signed back in July, it's hard to see him returning to the Preds again next season. At this point, a change of scenery is probably best for the 26-year-old winger.

  • Predators' Denis Gurianov: Slides helper in win

    Gurianov produced an assist, two shots on goal, two hits and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 6-3 win over the Stars.

    Gurianov got on the scoresheet against his former team by setting up a Thomas Novak goal in the second period. Through three NHL outings this season, Gurianov has two points, six shots on net, three hits and a plus-4 rating. He's taken on a middle-six role when with the big club, though he has a lot to prove after failing to reach the 20-point mark in 2022-23.

  • Predators' Denis Gurianov: Nets first goal with Preds

    Gurianov scored a goal on two shots in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Ducks.

    Gurianov cut Nashville's deficit to 5-3 with 45 seconds remaining in the third period, poking home a loose puck following a net-front scramble for his first goal in his second game with the Predators this season. The 26-year-old winger has averaged 13:32 of ice time through his first two contests, playing on the second line with Colton Sissons and Juuso Parssinen. Gurianov does offer some potential scoring upside -- he has 12 goals and 30 points in 27 games with AHL Milwaukee this year.

  • Predators' Denis Gurianov: Recalled Saturday

    Gurianov was recalled from AHL Milwaukee on Saturday, per Emma Lingan of The Hockey Writers.

    Gurianov figures to serve as a depth option for Nashville prior to Saturday's matchup with Dallas. The 26-year-old winger had seven goals and 17 points in 66 games last season between the Stars and Canadiens. He has posted 12 goals and 18 assists in 27 AHL contests this year.

  • Predators' Denis Gurianov: Put on waivers

    Gurianov was placed on waivers by Nashville on Saturday, per Chris Johnston of TSN.

    Gurianov recorded seven goals and 17 points in 66 games between Dallas and Montreal in 2022-23. Unless he's selected off waivers, Gurianov will probably be reassigned to AHL Milwaukee.

  • Predators' Denis Gurianov: Inks one-year deal with Nashville

    Gurianov agreed to a one-year, $850,000 contract with Nashville on Tuesday.

    Gurianov became an unrestricted free agent after the Canadiens decided not to give him a qualifying offer. He posted seven goals, 17 points and 116 shots on net in 66 games between Montreal and Dallas last season. Gurianov will provide some depth to Nashville's bottom-six forward group in 2023-24.

  • Denis Gurianov: Won't get qualifying offer

    Gurianov won't receive a qualifying offer from the Canadiens, which will make him an unrestricted free agent Saturday, per Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports.

    Gurianov had seven goals and 17 points in 66 contests while averaging 13:12 of ice time between Dallas and Montreal in 2022-23. He's coming off a one-year, $2.9 million contract and would have required a qualifying offer of the same amount for Montreal to retain his exclusive negotiating rights.

  • Canadiens' Denis Gurianov: Helps on power play

    Gurianov had a power-play assist, one shot on goal and one blocked shot over 17:27 of ice time in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Bruins.

    Gurianov set up Nick Suzuki for a one-timer to put the Canadiens on the board late in what was a spirited and physical first period. The former Star has four goals and three assists over the last eight contests. The 25-year-old forward was one of four young Montreal forwards on the scoresheet, giving a glimpse of what next season might look like. In addition to Gurianov, Nick Suzuki (goal, assist), Kirby Dach (goal, assist) and Denis Gurianov (assist) made an impact against the NHL's best team.

  • Canadiens' Denis Gurianov: Fitting in with Habs

    Gurianov had an assist, one shot on goal, two blocked shots and two penalty minutes over 14:11 of ice time in Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Lightning.

    Gurianov hit Jonathan Drouin in stride, setting up Montreal's second goal, and gave the newest Canadien seven points in 12 games since joining the team. Six of those seven points were posted in the last seven contests. Gurianov earned his way into the top-six and is getting 15:41 TOI per game, nearly four minutes more than he was averaging in Dallas.

  • Canadiens' Denis Gurianov: Fourth goal in last five games

    Gurianov scored a goal Saturday in a 5-3 loss to the Lightning.

    The guy is hot -- it was Gurianov's fourth goal in five games. He took a feed from Josh Anderson in the second period, and he one-timed the puck from the left circle. Montreal has been a good fit for Gurianov, who has six points, including five goals, in 11 games after putting up just nine points in 43 games in Dallas earlier this year.

  • Canadiens' Denis Gurianov: Extends two streaks in win

    Gurianov scored a goal and assisted on another in Tuesday's 6-4 win over Pittsburgh. His night included four shots on net and two hits over 16:11 of ice time.

    Jonathan Drouin's hard work in the corner against two Penguin defenders led to the Canadiens' third goal in a six-minute stretch of the first period. It was the third consecutive game with tally for Gurianov and fourth straight with a point. The 2015 first-round pick of Dallas has another 14 games in the regular season to convince the Canadiens he's worth a $2.9 million qualifying offer. For that, the forward needs to not only provide offense but improve his play away from the puck, as Arpon Basu and Marc Antoine Godin of The Athletic reported earlier this week. "We made the trade planning to keep him, but every player has a job to do, and our job is to evaluate them," general manager Kent Hughes said. "So over the final games, we'll be following him closely." Montreal's had some luck with reclamation projects, like Kirby Dach, under coach Martin St. Louis, who ignited Cole Caufield's (shoulder) scoring touch last season.

  • Canadiens' Denis Gurianov: Provides goal in loss Monday

    Gurianov contributed a power-play goal in Montreal's 8-4 loss to Colorado on Monday.

    Gurianov found the back of the net late in the second period, narrowing Colorado's lead to 6-2. It was his fifth goal and 13th point in 51 contests in 2022-23. Gurianov is on a three-game scoring streak, supplying two goals and three points in that span.

  • Canadiens' Denis Gurianov: Tallies lone goal in loss

    Gurianov scored a goal on four shots and delivered two hits over 15:59 of ice time in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Devils.

    Rem Pitlick picked Damon Severson's pocket on the forecheck and fed Gurianov, who finished with a one-timer past Akira Schmid. It was Gurianov's second goal in seven games since joining Montreal and second consecutive game with a point for Dallas' first-round pick in 2015. With several forwards still out due to injury, the Canadiens will give Gurianov ample TOI to provide the consistency that's eluded him.

  • Canadiens' Denis Gurianov: Logs assist in loss

    Gurianov had an assist, two shots on goal and one hit over 12:53 of ice time in Thursday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Rangers.

    After a defensive zone turnover by the Rangers, Gurianov fed Kaiden Guhle for Montreal's first goal just 35 seconds into the contest. He's filling a role on the third line and has two points in six games since the Canadiens acquired him via trade. With news that the timelines of Brendan Gallagher (lower body) and Kirby Dach (lower body) were pushed out to later in the month, Gurianov will continue in a middle-six role.

  • Canadiens' Denis Gurianov: Loses spot on top line

    Gurianov had two shots on goal and one blocked shot over 13:34 of ice time in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Golden Knights.

    Gurianov opened the game on the top line, but by the end of the second period, he was replaced by Jesse Ylonen. The demotion came after his lackadaisical effort following a Vegas takeaway that resulted in their third goal. He didn't get on the ice over the final five minutes of the game. It was Gurianov's lowest TOI in four games since joining the Canadiens.

  • Canadiens' Denis Gurianov: Scores first goal with new team

    Gurianov scored a goal on two shots and added two hits in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Kings.

    Gurianov needed just two games to get his first goal with the Canadiens after he was dealt from the Stars earlier in the week. The 25-year-old winger has been given a look in a top-six role with his new team -- the pressure is significantly lower since the Habs aren't in the playoff race. He's at three goals, seven helpers, a minus-1 rating, 78 shots on net and 26 hits through 45 contests this season.

  • Canadiens' Denis Gurianov: Makes Montreal debut

    Gurianov had six shots on goal and one hit over 17:02 of ice time in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Sharks.

    This was Gurianov's first game since the Canadiens acquired the forward, and he was handed a plum assignment on a reconstituted top line with Nick Suzuki and Mike Hoffman. The 25-year-old led Montreal in shots and flashed evidence as to why the Stars selected him in the first round of the 2015 draft. He was on ice nearly five minutes more than his season average (12:08) in Dallas. Canadiens general manager Kent Hughes hopes to salvage value out of Gurianov much like he has with Kirby Dach (lower body), another first-rounder whose star has dimmed since being drafted in 2019.

  • Canadiens' Denis Gurianov: Dealt to Canadiens

    Gurianov was traded by Dallas to Montreal on Sunday in exchange for Evgenii Dadonov.

    Gurianov has produced two goals and seven assists in 43 games this season. He has also been credited with 70 shots on net, 17 blocks and 23 hits. Gurianov will probably occupy a bottom-six forward spot with the Canadiens.

  • Stars' Denis Gurianov: Hands out assist in loss

    Gurianov produced an assist and two shots on goal in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Blackhawks.

    Gurianov joined a rush and set up Jamie Benn's first-period tally. With the Stars going to an 11-forward, seven-defensemen lineup, Gurianov was bumped up to the third line. He snapped a five-game point drought, but he still hasn't scored since Dec. 10, a span of 21 contests in which he has four assists. The winger is at nine points, 69 shots on net, 22 hits, 17 blocked shots and a minus-2 rating through 42 appearances.
