  • Canadiens' Michael Pezzetta: Has first NHL fight

    Pezzetta had a five-minute fighting penalty in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Rangers.

    Pezzetta, recently called up from AHL Laval, engaged in his first NHL fight when he challenged Ryan Reaves, the league's de facto heavyweight champ, and lost. It's unclear if the 23-year-old forward was trying to get the Canadiens fired up, but the Rangers scored just 28 seconds later to take a 2-1 lead. Pezzetta has 17 PIM in eight games since being called up from Laval.

  • Canadiens' Michael Pezzetta: Tallies first NHL goal

    Pezzetta scored a goal on two shots in Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Bruins.

    Pezzetta scored at 16:25 of the second period to give the Canadiens a 2-1 lead, but that was it for their offense Sunday. It was the 23-year-old's first NHL goal, and he's produced a point in each of the last two contests. The Ontario native has added nine shots on net, 17 hits and 12 PIM in seven appearances while playing exclusively on the fourth line.

  • Canadiens' Michael Pezzetta: Earns first NHL point

    Pezzetta had an assist, one shot on goal, one hit and four penalty minutes in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to Detroit.

    Pezzetta got his first NHL point when he fed Ryan Poehling for the game's first goal early in the first period. He's been skating on the fourth line along with Poehling and Alex Belzile, a trio of forwards that opened the season at AHL Laval. The Canadiens have a few injuries at forward, so the Laval Line could remain intact for Sunday's game in Boston. In six games for the Canadiens, Pezzetta has one assist, seven shots on goal, 16 hits and 12 PIM while averaging 7:29 TOI per game.

  • Canadiens' Michael Pezzetta: Delivers checks in debut

    Pezzetta had two shots on goal and five hits over 8:31 of ice time in Tuesday's 3-0 win over Detroit.

    The 23-year-old Pezzetta made his NHL debut after spending the last three seasons at AHL Laval. He took the roster spot that once belonged to prized prospect Cole Caufield, who was sent down to Laval on Monday. Pezzetta served on the fourth line and played an appropriate role, mixing it up for a team-high five hits. He's shown some scoring touch for the Rocket this season, posting three goals and three assists in eight games.

  • Canadiens' Michael Pezzetta: Debut expected Tuesday

    Pezzetta is expected to make his NHL debut Tuesday, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

    Pezzetta was called up from AHL Laval on Monday after Montreal dispatched rookie Cole Caulfield to the AHL. The 23-year-old forward, selected in the sixth round of the 2016 draft, will be making his NHL debut after three-plus seasons with Laval. He has three goals, three assists, 16 PIM and is plus-7 over eight games for the Rocket this season. If the same lines used at Monday's practice take the ice Tuesday, Pezzetta will skate on the fourth line along with Adam Brooks and a forward yet to be known.

  • Canadiens' Michael Pezzetta: Brought up from minors

    Pezzetta was called up from AHL Laval on Monday.

    Pezzetta has been lighting it up in the minors to start the year with three goals and three assists in eight games for the Rocket. The 23-year-old winger will switch places with Cole Caufield and could be asked to immediately jump into the Habs' lineup if Brendan Gallagher (undisclosed) is unable to play versus Detroit on Tuesday.

  • Canadiens' Michael Pezzetta: Headed for waivers Wednesday

    Pezzetta will be placed on waivers Wednesday for the purpose of reassigning him to AHL Laval.

    Pezzetta -- who has yet to appear in an NHL game -- was always a long shot to make the Opening Night roster, so his demotion to the minors shouldn't come as a surprise. The 2016 sixth-round draft pick figures to spend yet another year developing in the AHL, where he's registered a mere 19 points in 107 games.

  • Canadiens' Michael Pezzetta: Signs one-year pact

    Pezzetta agreed to terms on a one-year, two-way contract with Montreal on Thursday.

    Pezzetta has managed just nine points in 52 games for AHL Laval over the last two seasons, so fantasy players shouldn't be expecting much out of the sixth-round pick in terms of fantasy value.

  • Canadiens' Michael Pezzetta: Returns to AHL Laval

    Pezzetta was reassigned to AHL Laval on Thursday, per CapFriendly.
