  • Canadiens' Karl Alzner: Makes splash in AHL

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/30/18) Alzner scored a goal, finished plus-2, and he was named the first star in his debut at AHL Laval on Wednesday.

    The 30-year-old Alzner was assigned to Laval on Tuesday after clearing NHL waivers. "I was shocked, honestly," Alzner told Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette about his goal after the game. "I don't typically get those ones off too well. They're kind of tough when they're coming right at you. But I was just lucky I got a hold of it and it found a spot. I don't know if the goalie was really expecting it to come high. That's kind of what I needed just to kind of settle me into the game. It's good to score a goal at any level." There are no immediate plans to bring Alzner back to Montreal.

    Canadiens' Karl Alzner: Clears waivers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/28/18) Alzner reported to AHL Laval after clearing waivers Tuesday, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

    Alzner met the media with a smile ahead of his first game with the Rocket on Wednesday against Belleville. The 30-year-old defenseman isn't happy to be in the minors, but a salary of $6 million this season -- the highest-paid player in the AHL -- makes it easier to put a smile on his face. His goal is to get back to the NHL either with the Canadiens or another franchise, though finding takers for a guy with another three years and $11 million left beyond this season will be a challenge.

    Canadiens' Karl Alzner: Hits waiver wire

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/26/18) Alzner was placed on waivers by the Habs on Monday, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    By waiving Alzner, Montreal clears a spot on the 23-man roster to activate Shea Weber (knee) off injured reserve, which will likely occur ahead of Tuesday's clash with Carolina. Alzner previously told reporters he would be willing to accept a demotion to AHL Laval, per Arpon Basu of The Athletic, and figures to return to the minors for the first time since 2009-10, when he was with the Capitals. That's if he clears waivers, which is certainly not guaranteed, but the salary commitment (three more years, $4.625 AAV) should be a deterrent.

    Canadiens' Karl Alzner: Gives Habs needed element

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/24/18) Alzner had one shot and one hit over 17:07 of ice time on the third pair in Friday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Sabres.

    Coach Claude Julien, looking to tighten up his defense, inserted stay-at-home types Alzner and Brett Kulak, while puck-movers Mike Reilly and Xavier Ouellet were healthy scratches. Montreal now has eight defensemen on the roster, and the field will get more crowded Tuesday when Shea Weber (knee) is expected to return. There will be some shakeup on the blue line in the coming days, which could result in Alzner, a healthy scratch in 16 of 23 games, regaining a nightly spot in the lineup.

    Canadiens' Karl Alzner: Back in lineup Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/9/18) Alzner started in place of Noah Juulsen on Thursday and had four blocked shots, two hits, a two-minute minor penalty and one shot on net in a 6-5 overtime loss to Buffalo.

    Juulsen sat out with the normal bumps and bruises NHL defensemen experience, so this might just be a one-game appearance for Alzner, who made his first start in five games. He played a typically physical game and finished plus-1 over a season-high 19:19 of ice time. The veteran blueliner has appeared in just five of the first 16 games and is plus-2.
