  • Canadiens' Karl Alzner: Point drought extends to nine games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/9/17) Alzner failed to mark the scoresheet through 19:43 of ice time during Thursday's 3-0 loss to Minnesota.

    The veteran defenseman has now gone nine games without registering a point and has just four assists and 14 shots through 17 contests for the campaign. Alzner entered Thursday starting 54.8 percent of his five-on-five shifts in his own zone and averaging 3:04 of shorthanded time per game. His current role keeps him off the fantasy radar in the majority of settings.

    Canadiens' Karl Alzner: Assists on shortie

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/6/17) Alzner had a shorthanded assist, two shots on net, one hit and was minus-1 over 21:28 of ice time in Thursday's 3-2 shootout win over Buffalo.

    Alzner's defensive-zone poke check initiated a sequence that led to Phillip Danault's shorthanded, game-tying goal in the third period. It's the type of play that goes unnoticed, but is emblematic of Alzner's steady play on the blue line. The 29-year-old is one of three new faces on defense, so there may be some adjustment early on, something that showed Thursday when the Habs let 45 shots in on goalie Carey Price.

    Canadiens' Karl Alzner: Slotted on second pair

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/5/17) Alzner will skate on the second defensive pairing alongside Jeff Petry when he makes his debut for Montreal on Thursday against Buffalo, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

    Alzner's received very little attention during training camp, as most of the ink and bytes have focused on 19-year-old defenseman Victor Mete, the Canadiens' habitual lack of goal scoring, and the loss of significant pieces from last season's squad. Two of those gone from the team are defensemen Andrei Markov (21:50 ATOI) and Alexei Emelin (21:19). Alzner, a nine-year veteran who posted 3-10-13 totals and was plus-23 with the Capitals last season, plays a simple but effective game on the blue line. He won't replace Markov's offense, but should quietly improve the defense in front of Carey Price.

    Canadiens' Karl Alzner: Healthy for training camp

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9/15/17) Alzner has fully recovered from the hand injury he sustained in the first round of last season's playoffs.

    Alzner signed a five-year, $23.125 million contract with Montreal this offseason, so he'll be expected to slot in as a top-pairing defender alongside Shea Weber in 2017-18. The 28-year-old has never been known for his offensive contributions -- he's only cracked the 20-point mark twice during his nine years in the NHL -- but he should thrive as a shutdown option in front of elite goaltender Carey Price.

    Canadiens' Karl Alzner: Deal made official

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (7/1/17) Alzner (hand), as expected, signed a five-year, $23.125 million contract with the Canadiens on Saturday, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.

    By acquiring Alzner, the Habs get one of the league's toughest shutdown defenders. We're talking about six straight seasons without missing a single contest, though an upper-body injury that Alzner sustained in mid-April snapped the ironman streak of 599 consecutive games played, and a hand injury that won't require surgery crept up in the postseason. Despite the new evidence that he's human, Alzner should attract any fantasy owner involved in a league that imposes a heavy scoring weight on defensive totals. He amassed 360 hits and 534 blocked shots in his last three years with the Caps, and he could be in line for a substantial role with speculation that Andrei Markov has played his last game as a Hab.
