  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Enters lineup, finds twine

    Romanov scored a goal in Monday's 3-2 overtime win over the Lightning in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

    Making just his third appearance of the postseason and first since Game 1 against Vegas on June 14, Romanov capitalized on his opportunity by giving Montreal a 2-1 lead 8:48 into the third period. The 21-year-old blueliner only skated 12:16 and was credited with a pair of giveaways on the scoresheet, but it's probably safe to assume his goal will earn him another lineup nod for Game 5 on Wednesday.

    Romanov registered one shot and one hit over 9:27 of ice time in Montreal's 3-2 overtime victory over Winnipeg in Game 4 of their playoff series Monday.

    Romanov made his playoff debut, filling in for Jeff Petry (upper body). The Canadiens completed a sweep of the Jets and await the winner of the Colorado/Vegas playoff series, which is tied at 2-2. Petry is expected to return for the next round, although he's uncertain for Game 1.

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Sent to taxi squad

    Romanov was reassigned to the taxi squad Monday, CapFriendly reports.

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Bags assist Wednesday

    Romanov produced an assist in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Oilers.

    Romanov earned the secondary helper on a Josh Anderson goal in the third period, which wound up being the game-winner. The 21-year-old Romanov hadn't gone on the scoresheet since Feb. 25, a span of 24 outings without a point. The Russian blueliner has just six points, 66 shots on net, a plus-8 rating, 115 hits and 48 blocked shots in 43 appearances as a rookie.

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Rejoins active roster

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Drops to taxi squad

    Romanov was reassigned to the taxi squad Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Produces helper

    Romanov notched an assist and four blocked shots in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Jets.

    Romanov set up Joel Armia for the opening tally at 13:45 of the first period. The 21-year-old Romanov has five points in 18 games -- his scoring numbers don't really jump off the page. He's been better in non-scoring metrics, with 31 shots on net, 45 hits and 24 blocked shots. The Russian mostly works in a bottom-pairing role. He hasn't exceeded 20 minutes in a game since Feb. 4 versus the Senators.

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Picks up assist

    Romanov notched an assist, seven hits and a plus-2 rating in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Maple Leafs.

    Romanov set up Tyler Toffoli for a third-period tally, but that came too late to get the Canadiens back in the game. The 21-year-old Romanov has two points in his last four games after a spell of eight straight scoreless outings. As a young blueliner, he may be inconsistent at times. The Russian rearguard is up to four points, 42 hits, 29 shots on net and a plus-6 rating in 15 outings.

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Gathers assist in loss

    Romanov provided an assist, two shots on goal and two blocked shots in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Maple Leafs.

    Romanov was credited with the secondary helper on a Tomas Tatar goal in the third period, although it appeared Joel Armia may have gotten a deflection on Ben Chiarot's shot. If a scoring change occurs, Romanov won't have credit for the assist anymore, but for now, he has three points in 12 games. The Russian rookie has added 26 hits, 17 blocked shots and 25 shots on net with a plus-3 rating so far.

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Requires stitches

    Romanov took a puck to the face during Friday's practice and needed stitches, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

    Head coach Claude Julien indicated the injury was not serious and Romanov would be ready to play Saturday afternoon's game against Ottawa. The rookie, third-pair blueliner has one goal, one assist, 22 shots, 24 hits, and 13 blocked shots while averaging 18:53 of ice time over 10 games.

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Shuffles to NHL roster

    Romanov will be promoted to Montreal's active roster and suit up for Thursday's game against Ottawa, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    Romanov stayed on the taxi squad for Tuesday's win over Vancouver, but he was never expected to be out of the lineup for long. The 21-year-old rookie has picked up two points and 20 shots through nine games this campaign.

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Heads to taxi squad

    Romanov was assigned to the taxi squad Tuesday, CapFriendly reports.

    Romanov has earned the trust of head coach Claude Julien, and he's expected to be a fixture in the lineup this year. The 21-year-old has produced two points, 20 shots on net, 21 hits and 11 blocked shots through nine games. He won't be promoted to the active roster for Tuesday's game against the Canucks, according to Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca.

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Won't play Tuesday

    Romanov won't be promoted from the taxi squad for Tuesday's game against the Canucks, John Lu of TSN.ca reports.

    The rookie defenseman has played nine straight games to start the season, recording two points, 20 shots, 21 hits and 11 blocked shots in that stretch. Romanov was designated for the taxi squad Tuesday morning, and he'll miss his first game of the year as a result. Head coach Claude Julien called it a "rotation," meaning the 21-year-old likely won't be out of the lineup long.

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Delivers four thumps in loss

    Romanov had four shots and four hits while finishing plus-3 over 16:19 of ice time in Wednesday's 6-5 shootout loss to the Canucks.

    Romanov continued his strong play to start the season. The 21-year-old blueliner is tied for the team lead with 14 hits, sits third with 13 shots, and is second at plus-4 through four games. Montreal didn't spend much time on the power play Wednesday, so the rookie's ice time was limited to 5-on-5 situations. Romanov is still on the third pair, but head coach Claude Julien has shown confidence in the young blueliner, giving him high-leverage, end-of-game minutes in addition to his role on the second power-play unit.

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Deposits first NHL goal

    Romanov scored a goal on three shots and added four hits in Monday's 3-1 win over the Oilers.

    Romanov opened the scoring at 9:54 of the first period, and the Canadiens never trailed in the contest. The Russian blueliner has adapted well to the NHL with two points, 10 hits, nine shots on goal and six blocked shots through his first three appearances. He probably won't bump Jeff Petry off the second pairing anytime soon, but head coach Claude Julien will want to find ways to get Romanov on the ice if he keeps performing at a high level.

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Garners first NHL point

    Romanov had a power-play assist, three shots, one hit and four blocked shots over 21:48 of ice time in Wednesday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Maple Leafs.

    The 21-year-old Russian justified being placed on the power play when he fired a pretty two-line pass to trigger a man-advantage goal by Tomas Tatar. He also had 2:58 of ice time on the power play and added another 2:17 on the penalty-kill unit. Romanov may become a top-four defender soon.

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Lands spot on power play

    Romanov will skate on the second power-play unit to start the season, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports.

    Romanov, a second-round pick in the 2018 draft, is the lone defenseman on the second group. The 21-year-old blueliner didn't show much offense in the KHL -- one goal and 10 assists in 86 games -- but coach Claude Julien cites his shot as a reason to have him quarterbacking the second unit, per Eric Engel of SportsNet. Defensively, the Habs like the 6-foot, 208-pounder's play-killing ability. In five-on-five situations, Julien has Romanov paired with Brett Kulak on the third pairing.
