  • Canadiens' Ryan Poehling: Opens scoring in win

    Poehling scored a goal on six shots in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Rangers.

    Michael Pezzetta fed Poehling, who jumped into the play from the right circle, and his one timer found an opening between the arm and body of New York goalie Alexandar Georgiev for the first goal of the game. It was the ninth of the season for Poehling, a 2017 first-round pick that's still trying to find a full-time home in the NHL. He's up to nine goals, eight assists and 90 shots through 56 games, mostly as a fourth-line center.

  • Canadiens' Ryan Poehling: Strikes twice in loss

    Poehling scored two goals on four shots and blocked two shots in Saturday's 8-4 loss to Washington.

    Poehling tallied for the third time in the last three games. He's finishing strong for a team that is evaluating its talent for roles on next year's roster. Poehling has eight goals, eight assists and is minus-20 over 52 games, mostly as a fourth-liner.

  • Canadiens' Ryan Poehling: Tallies on power play

    Poehling scored a power-play goal in Wednesday's 5-1 loss to Columbus. He finished with one shot, one hit and one blocked shot over 13:23 of ice time.

    Poehling was in the appropriate position in front of Blue Jackets goalie Elvis Merzlikins to redirect Nick Suzuki's shot just nine seconds into the power play. The 23-year-old Poehling isn't always on the man-advantage unit, but he was with the first team Wednesday and pocketed his second PPG of the season and first since Jan. 17. The fourth-line center has six goals, eight assists, 75 shots, 40 hits, 19 blocked shots and six PIM while averaging 12:14 TOI over 50 games.

  • Canadiens' Ryan Poehling: Assists in return

    Poehling had an assist, one shot on net and two PIM over 9:06 of ice time in Saturday's 5-4 shootout win over the Lightning.

    Poehling, who returned from a stint on injured reserve, was the primary helper on a Jesse Ylonen goal that set up overtime. Poehling had not played since March 13, a stretch of nine games, and returned to a lot of new bodies on the ice. He skated on the fourth line with Ylonen and Tyler Pitlick.

  • Canadiens' Ryan Poehling: Back in action

    Poehling (upper body) will be activated off injured reserve and return to the lineup Saturday versus the Lightning, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    Poehling will presumably draw into a bottom-six role following his nine-game absence. The 23-year-old forward has picked up 12 points through 45 contests this season.

  • Canadiens' Ryan Poehling: Traveling with team

    Poehling (upper body) is traveling with the Canadiens, Eric Engels of reports.

    The Canadiens are in the midst of a four-game road trip, but it's unclear if Poehling will be healthy before the end of it. He remains on injured reserve and won't play Tuesday versus the Panthers, but he could be an option as soon as Thursday's game against the Hurricanes.

  • Canadiens' Ryan Poehling: Facing extended absence

    Poehling is expected to be sidelined for 1-2 weeks with an upper-body injury.

    Poehling's only picked up 12 points while posting an unsightly minus-19 rating through 45 games this campaign, so his absence will undoubtedly go unnoticed in most fantasy circles. Another update on the 23-year-old pivot should surface once he's cleared to rejoin the lineup.

  • Canadiens' Ryan Poehling: Ruled out indefinitely

    Poehling (upper body) will be sidelined indefinitely, the team announced Tuesday.

    It's just another blow for the Canadiens, who already have nine players on injured reserve. Unless one of those players can suit up against the Coyotes on Tuesday, Mathieu Perreault figures to jump back into the lineup in Poehling's stead. At this point, with roughly six weeks left in the NHL season, it's possible Poehling's 2021-22 campaign is over.

  • Canadiens' Ryan Poehling: Moved to IR

    Poehling (upper body) was designated for injured reserve Tuesday.

    Poehling was ruled out "indefinitely" earlier in the day, but the severity of his injury is still unclear. His earliest return date is Monday against Boston, but the 23-year-old could potentially be out a lot longer than that.

  • Canadiens' Ryan Poehling: Exits Sunday's game

    Poehling (upper body) will not return to Sunday's contest against the Flyers.

    Poehling posted a minus-2 rating in 7:42 of ice time before leaving Sunday's game. An update on his status should be available before Tuesday's matchup with Arizona.

  • Canadiens' Ryan Poehling: Records assist in loss

    Poehling had one assist and one shot on net in Tuesday's 8-4 loss to the Jets.

    Poehling snapped a three-game pointless streak when he assisted on Josh Anderson's third goal of the game, which completed Montreal's comeback from a 4-0 deficit. The helper was the fifth in the last 10 games for the fourth-line center. Like many other Canadiens, Poehling appears to be thriving under interim head coach Martin St. Louis.

  • Canadiens' Ryan Poehling: Works for assist

    Poehling had an assist, one shot on net, two hits and one blocked shot in Sunday's 3-2 shootout win over the Islanders.

    Poehling and Michael Pezzetta worked hard in the corner behind the New York goal line to free a puck, which eventually wheeled around to Jeff Petry for Montreal's first goal. It was the fourth time in the last six games that the fourth-line center assisted on a tally.

  • Canadiens' Ryan Poehling: Logs assist in loss

    Poehling had an assist, two shots on goal and one blocked shot in Sunday's 5-3 loss to Buffalo.

    Poehling had the primary helper on Joel Armia's goal late in the second period, which handed Montreal a brief 3-2 lead. It was the fourth consecutive game that the Canadiens' fourth line was responsible for a goal, and Poehling has assisted on three of them. This burst of scoring came after seven-game point drought.

  • Canadiens' Ryan Poehling: Records assist in loss

    Poehling had an assist, one shot on net and one hit in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Blue Jackets.

    On the forecheck, Poehling intercepted a weak clearing attempt by Columbus' Vladislav Gavrikov along the boards and set up Cole Caufield's one-timer. It was the second assist in three games for the fourth-line center. The fourth line has shown life with goals in three consecutive contests, including two straight for Caufield. Poehling's roster spot could be taken whenever Christian Dvorak (upper body) is ready, but if he's developing chemistry with Caufield, a prospect who the Canadiens have been waiting on, Poehling could continue to be part of the active roster.

  • Canadiens' Ryan Poehling: Garners assist in loss

    Poehling had an assist and two shots on net in Tuesday's 7-1 loss to New Jersey.

    Poehling appeared to be outside the top four lines at Monday's practice, but Christian Dvorak (upper body) was unable to suit up. That opened a spot on the active roster for Poehling, who skated on the fourth line with Joel Armia and Cole Caufield. He also logged time on the power play. The assist snapped a seven-game pointless streak and gave the Minnesota native eight points through 31 contests.

  • Canadiens' Ryan Poehling: Fighting for spot

    Poehling skated on the fifth line during Monday's practice, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

    The Canadiens resume play Tuesday, a home game against New Jersey, and welcomed back a few bodies they didn't have when they last played Jan. 30. Cole Caufield and Joel Armia are expected back on the ice as is Christian Dvorak after a bout with an upper-body injury. Poehling, a first-round draft pick in 2017, has not lived up to that billing but flashed earlier this season before a recent downturn. With just three points over the last 20 games, he'll need to fight for a spot on the active roster.

  • Canadiens' Ryan Poehling: Snaps lengthy goal skid

    Poehling scored a power-play goal, had two shots on net and delivered one hit in Monday's 5-2 loss to Arizona.

    Poehling positioned himself in front of the net where he deflected home a blast from Jonathan Drouin for his fifth goal of the season. The tally snapped a 12-game goal drought.

  • Canadiens' Ryan Poehling: Serves two hits

    Poehling finished with two hits in a 5-1 loss to the Bruins on Wednesday.

  • Canadiens' Ryan Poehling: Slides assist in loss

    Poehling had an assist in Saturday's 4-1 loss to St. Louis.

    Poehling was involved in a puck battle to the left of Blues goalie Charlie Lindgren and managed to pass it out to a closing Alexander Romanov, who beat the goalie over his left shoulder. Poehling provided an initial shot of offense when first called up from AHL Laval, but the center has just two points over the last nine contests. Due to injuries, he's moved up to the second line, although an in-game adjustment Saturday moved him back to the third line when the goal was scored.

  • Canadiens' Ryan Poehling: Nets lone goal in loss

    Poehling scored a goal on three shots in Monday's 2-1 loss to the Canucks.

    Poehling tied the game at 1-1 at 18:39 of the first period. The 22-year-old forward has been sharp since becoming a regular in the Canadiens' lineup, picking up four goals in 10 contests. He's been limited to fourth-line duties, but he could be due for a move up the lineup. He's added 14 shots on net, a plus-1 rating and five hits.
