  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Assessed misconduct

    Romanov had one shot on net, one hit, one blocked shot and a 10-minute misconduct penalty in Saturday's 6-4 loss to Ottawa.

    Montreal and Ottawa can't play a game without acrimony. A kerfuffle broke out late in the first period when Romanov and Alex Formenton were each sent off for 10 minutes. Three minor penalties were also assessed. Romanov ranks fifth on the Canadiens with 53 PIM in 76 games.

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Bags apple in loss

    Romanov had an assist, two shots on net, one hit and six blocked shots in Thursday's 4-3 loss to Florida.

    Romanov's missive from the point was tipped in by Jake Evans, giving the young defenseman five points (one goal, four assists) over the last seven contests. The scoring spree comes after a 21-game stretch of futility. Romanov led all Montreal blueliners with 22:52 of ice timee after top-pair defender Jeff Petry was removed due to a lower-body injury.

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Picks up assist in loss

    Romanov had an assist, three shots on net, two hits, three blocked shots and four PIM in Monday's 3-2 overtime loss to Boston.

    Romanov worked a give-and-go with blueline mate David Savard for the Canadiens' first goal. He also embedded himself in the Boston-Montreal rivalry by cross-checking noted villain Brad Marchand early in the first period. He picked up a tripping infraction later in the game. Romanov has four points in the last six games, but scoring is not what he brings. His 192 hits leads the Habs.

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Points snap 21-game scoring drought

    Romanov scored a goal and added an assist in a 4-3 shootout loss to Seattle on Saturday.

    The points snapped a 21-game drought. Romanov was the preseason favorite to take the giant leap forward onto the power play and help lead the Habs' blue line. That fell flat, but there's always next year (or the year after).

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Assist and fight in return

    Romanov logged an assist, five PIM, six hits and two shots on goal in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Blackhawks.

    Romanov had a hand in Jeff Petry's second-period tally. Later in the frame, Romanov dropped the gloves with Ryan Carpenter. After a two-game absence, Romanov was able to play in a top-four capacity with 19:22 of ice time despite being listed on the third pairing. The Russian blueliner set a career high with seven points in 33 contests. He's added 40 shots on net, 112 hits, 25 PIM and a minus-5 rating in his second NHL campaign.

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Good to go Thursday

    Romanov (undisclosed) will suit up Thursday against the Blackhawks, Eric Engels of reports.

    Romanov will play for the first time since Dec. 30. The second-year blueliner has six points while averaging 18:48 of ice time through 32 games this season.

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Unavailable Wednesday

    Romanov was not available to play against the Bruins on Wednesday and is unlikely to play Thursday against the Blackhawks, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports.

    Romanov was cleared to exit COVID-19 protocols earlier in the week, but his conditioning was not to the point where he could play Wednesday. He's been stranded in the U.S. after testing positive in Florida. If the defenseman can't go Thursday, Montreal's next game is Monday in Arizona, the first of a five-game swing through the Western States.

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Clears COVID-19 protocols

    Romanov exited the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Monday.

    Romanov will return to practice ahead of Wednesday's game with Boston. The 22-year-old averaged 20:47 of ice time and logged four points through his last 11 appearances. He only missed one game while in protocols.

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Added to protocols list

    Romanov entered the NHL's COVID-19 protocols Saturday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    Montreal may need to recall a skater from its taxi squad to fill in against the Panthers on Saturday. Romanov will need to submit two negative COVID-19 tests before rejoining the Canadiens.

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Skates on top pair

    Romanov had five hits and three blocked shots over a team-high 22:02 of ice time in Thursday's 4-0 loss to Carolina.

    Romanov, who played more than 20 minutes for a fourth straight game, has skated on the top pair the last two contests following the resumption of Montreal's season. Several blueline regulars are unavailable while in COVID-19 protocols, so Romanov gets a promotion. Ever since a one-game healthy scratch in early November, the Russian defenseman has been stellar on the back end, delivering 78 hits and blocking 32 shots while posting a minus-3 over 21 games.

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Contributes offense in win

    Romanov had an assist, five hits and five blocked shots in Thursday's 3-2 shootout win over Philadelphia.

    Romanov kept the play in the Flyers' end and slid a pass to Brett Kulak, whose slapshot was redirected by Artturi Lehkonen for an early 1-0 lead. Romanov leads the Habs in hits with 98, including 21 over the last four contests.

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Snaps goal drought

    Romanov scored a goal on three shots in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Blues. He added six hits and one blocked shot while finishing plus-1 over 18:38 of ice time.

    Romanov scored for the first time in 20 games with a rocket through a bunch of sticks and bodies. His pinch kept the puck in the St. Louis end, and he eventually finished the sequence with his second goal of the season. Romanov has five points, 33 shots on net, 18 PIM and a team-leading 88 hits over 28 games.

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Dealing with broken nose

    Romanov broke his nose in Thursday's game versus the Avalanche, Eric Engels of reports.

    Romanov was injured in a collision teammate Ryan Poehling and Avalanche defenseman Cale Makar during the contest. Romanov returned to the game and was able to finish it, so this should be an injury he can play though. Don't be surprised to see the 21-year-old blueliner with more facial protection if he plays Saturday versus the Predators.

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Two helpers in Saturday's win

    Romanov picked up two assists in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Penguins.

    He also added four shots, four hits and a plus-2 rating to his ledger. The performance snapped a streak of 12 consecutive games without a point for Romanov, and while the 21-year-old has plenty of skill, it isn't turning into consistent production in the NHL as yet.

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Returns to lineup

    Romanov returned to the lineup Thursday and had one hit over 15:38 of ice time in a 6-2 loss to the Islanders.

    Dvorak was a one-game healthy scratch Tuesday, but he returned to the lineup Thursday in place of Sami Niku. The 21-year-old Russian was the lone Montreal blueliner not on the ice for an Islanders goal Thursday.

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Healthy inactive Tuesday

    Romanov was inactive for Tuesday's 3-0 win over Detroit.

    Romanov was a healthy scratch for the first time this season. Sami Niku replaced him, which may have been the result of a play during Sunday's loss to the Ducks, when Romanov's poor positioning led to a Troy Terry breakaway that produced Anaheim's winning goal. Head coach Dominique Ducharme told Arpon Basu of The Athletic that coaches did some video work with the defenseman and wanted Romanov to watch the game from above in the press box to see certain situations develop on ice.

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Tallies assist in loss

    Romanov had an assist, one shot on goal, two hits, three blocked shots and two penalty minutes in Saturday's 5-2 loss to Los Angeles.

    Romanov picked up the secondary helper on Montreal's first goal, forwarding the puck to Christian Dvorak, who fed Josh Anderson in stride for a 1-0 first-period lead. It was the second straight game with a point for Romanov, who scored a goal in Thursday's win over the Sharks. He has two points, 15 shots, 22 hits, 17 blocked shots and nine PIM through nine games.

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Notches first goal

    Romanov scored a goal on two shots, doled out four hits, blocked three shots, went plus-2 and added a fighting major in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Sharks.

    Jonathan Drouin stole the puck and set up Romanov for a blast from the point that doubled the Canadiens' lead to 2-0 in the second period. The 21-year-old Romanov is finally on the scoresheet after going seven games without a point to start the year. He's more of a physical presence on the blue line with 20 hits and 14 blocked shots in eight contests. The lack of offense will likely keep most fantasy managers from needing to roster the Russian blueliner.

  • 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.

  • Canadiens' Alexander Romanov: Makes playoff debut

    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.
