  • Canadiens' Paul Byron: Records first career hat trick

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/2/17) Byron dialed in his first career hat trick on just four shots in Saturday's 10-1 rout over the Red Wings.

    Each tally from Byron took place at even strength to send the crowd into a jubilant cacophony at the Bell Centre. The Ontario native had six goals in 27 games heading into this contest, but we'd hardly call his performance from Saturday a fluke given that he lit the lamp a career-high 22 times through 81 games last season.

    Canadiens' Paul Byron: Practices on top PP unit

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/28/17) Bryon skated with the top power-play unit during practice Tuesday, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

    Byron switched with captain Max Pacioretty, who was dropped to the second power-play group. The 29-year-old forward has fallen off last year's surprising scoring pace -- just four points in his last 13 games -- but is getting ice time with the best of the Canadiens' roster. Clearly, head coach Claude Julien trusts Byron, and that goes a long way with the veteran-loving coach.

    Canadiens' Paul Byron: Two-point night helps lift team to win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/25/17) Byron scored a short-handed goal and added an assist in a 3-0 win over the Sabres on Saturday night.

    Byron has quietly put up three goals and an assist in his last six games. He's been disappointing for those who hoped for a continued uptick in performance following last year's 43-point heroics. But it's looking more and more like 2016-17 was an anomaly. There's little appeal to roster Byron, unless you're in a deep format, although his current job as a top-six forward on a line with gifted playmakers Jonathan Drouin and Alex Galchenyuk may offer some short-term production.

    Canadiens' Paul Byron: Pots second in as many games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/17/17) Byron scored a goal on two shots with four hits and two blocked shots over 19:13 of ice time in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Coyotes.

    That's a season high of playing time for Byron, who was also given 3:28 on the power play. The goal was his second in as many games and gives Byron a team-high 16.7 shooting percentage. He's currently on a line with gifted playmakers Jonathan Drouin and Alex Galchenyuk, both of whom assisted on the goal, making Byron a viable fantasy asset despite a skimpy resume as an offensive producer.

    Canadiens' Paul Byron: Breaks scoreless skein

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/15/17) Bryon scored a goal on two shots, adding two hits and a blocked shot over 17:27 of ice time in Tuesday's 2-1 overtime loss to Columbus.

    Byron banged home a rebound off a Shea Weber shot, the only puck that got past a sterling Sergei Bobrovsky, who frustrated Canadiens shooters all night long. The goal was Byron's first in eight games and first point of any kind in seven. Byron's been a handy fantasy asset in Montreal, particularly when he's skating in a top-six role and getting this much ice time, but his recent scoreless run reminds us there's a reason he's been a bottom-line player for much of his career.
