Ben Scrivens: Heads overseas on one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scrivens signed a one-year contract with Dinamo Minsk of the KHL on Friday, TSN reports.

Scrivens appeared in 15 games with the Canadiens last season, posting a 5-8-0 record with an ugly 3.07 GAA and .906 save percentage over that span. The 29-year-old backstop will hope to perform at a higher level against slightly lesser competition in the KHL, and may have played his last NHL contest.

Canadiens' Ben Scrivens: Clears waivers Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scrivens went unclaimed off of waivers Thursday and has been assigned to AHL St. John's, Eric Engels of Sportsnet reports.

Scrivens was the odd-man out when Montreal signed Charlie Lindgren. The 29-year-old spent ten games with AHL Bakersfield earlier in the 2015-16 campaign in which he posted a disappointing 2-6-1 record with a .893 save percentage. With the organization clearly looking to Lindgren as their future, the netminder could be looking for a new home next season.

Canadiens' Ben Scrivens: Places on waivers Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scrivens was placed on waivers by the Canadiens on Wednesday, Elliotte Friedman of Hockey Night in Canada reports.

The former Cornell standout has struggled at both the NHL and AHL levels, but has logged 15 games with the Habs this season, holding a 3.07 GAA and a .906 save percentage. With Carey Price (leg) likely returning Thursday, Scrivens has become expendable. If he clears waivers, he'll likely head to AHL St. John's for the duration of the season.

Canadiens' Ben Scrivens: Relieves Condon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scrivens relieved Mike Condon in Saturday night's 5-2 loss to the Rangers. He entered the game to start the third period and stopped all four shots faced.

Condon was chased after giving up five goals on 14 shots. Undoubtedly, the Canadiens have missed Carey Price this season, but their pop-gun offense makes it difficult for any goalie less than a Vezina-caliber backstop. The defense didn't play a responsible game Saturday, but overall they're middle of the pack in shots against and blocked shots, so they do a reasonable job of eliminating how much a goalie has to do. However, neither Condon nor Scrivens have been a reasonable replacement for Price.

Canadiens' Ben Scrivens: Stops 36 in losing effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scrivens gave up four goals on 40 shots in Thursday's 4-3 loss to Detroit.

Montreal's ninth-worst defense was on display Thursday, leaving Scrivens out to dry as Detroit rained 21 shots on goal in the second period alone. The netminder has given up nine total tallies in his last two appearances, but the 29-year-old amassed 75 saves in that span, which shows he's capable of turning away attempts. However, whether it's Scrivens or any other netminder between the pipes, the Canadien defense is a mess and that won't change this season.

Canadiens' Ben Scrivens: Thursday start on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scrivens will start Thursday's road game against the Red Wings, TSN's John Lu reports.

Scrivens gave up five goals on 44 shots in Saturday's shutout loss to the Senators, so he'll look to bounce back from that rough effort Thursday against a Detroit squad that is battling to stay in the NHL playoff structure.

Canadiens' Ben Scrivens: Pelted with pucks in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scrivens made 39 saves in Saturday's 5-0 loss to the Senators.

His teammates didn't help him one little bit and they were porous while on the power play -- Scrivens faced several shorthanded rushes and allowed three goals while up a man. The Habs are a tough team to play behind; right now, we can't recommend anyone who dons the pads in that place.

Canadiens' Ben Scrivens: Protecting net Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scrivens will be in the crease in Saturday's road game against the Senators.

Scrivens was fantastic in his last start, stopping 41 of 43 shots en route to a 3-2 overtime win over the Sabres on Wednesday. The 29-year-old netminder will look to pick up his sixth win of the season Saturday in a decent road matchup with a Senators team averaging 2.75 goals per game at home this season, 13th in the NHL.

Canadiens' Ben Scrivens: Shines in 41-save victory Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scrivens was fantastic Wednesday, stopping 41 of 43 shots in a 3-2 overtime win over the Sabres.

Scrivens faced a ton of rubber at the hands of the Sabres in this one, eventually coming away with the win thanks to Paul Byron's unassisted snipe in OT. Montreal doesn't have much to play for at this point other than pride, so it was nice to see Scrivens get his fifth win in a Habs sweater, especially since he's struggled with a 2.90 GAA this season.

Canadiens' Ben Scrivens: Draws start in goal Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scrivens will start Wednesday's game against the Sabres.

Scrivens is slated to get the nod after Mike Condon drew the start in net for the Habs in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Panthers. Scrivens, who has allowed three goals in each of his last three starts, will take aim at a Buffalo squad that will welcome top scorer Ryan O'Reilly back to the lineup after an 11-game absence.

Canadiens' Ben Scrivens: Stops 30, earns rare victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scrivens turned away 30 of 33 shots in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime win against Dallas.

Scrivens earned his fourth win on the season, but the netminder has allowed three goals in his last four appearances -- on par with his 3.00 GAA in limited action this year. The 29-year-old remains a fringe option when he's called upon to defend the crease.

Canadiens' Ben Scrivens: Protecting crease Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scrivens will tend the twine Tuesday against the Stars, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Scrivens has starterd just once in the last month when he allowed three goals in a loss to the Kings. In total, the 29-year-old has only seen action in 10 contests on the year while posting a 3-6-0 record. It will be another tough outing for the netminder as he faces a Dallas squad that is averaging 3.18 markers per game, which means you may want to look elsewhere for a goaltender in your fantasy lineups.

Canadiens' Ben Scrivens: Gives up three in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scrivens allowed three goals on 31 shots in a 3-2 loss to the Kings on Thursday.

Scrivens has yet to pick up a win since Feb. 9, a span of three appearances. The 29-year-old is now a less than stellar 3-6-0 on the season, and isn't likely to continue to see an increased amount of action in the near future. It would be wise to steer clear of Scrivens until he can establish himself as a reliable netminder.

Canadiens' Ben Scrivens: In goal Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scrivens will start in goal Thursday night against the Kings, the Montreal Gazette reports. He hasn't faced Los Angeles this season and was 1-2 with an .856 save percentage against them last season.

Having the backup goalie start one of the games in a back-to-back set is the custom and lead goalie Michael Condon backstopped Montreal in Wednesday's shootout loss to Anaheim. Scrivens hasn't played since Feb. 17, a two-week stretch of inactivity that might make fantasy owners blanch at putting him in a lineup.

Canadiens' Ben Scrivens: Succumbs to Avalanche on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scrivens allowed three goals on 28 shots in a 3-2 loss Wednesday to Colorado.

Scrivens and the Habs were nursing a 2-1 lead late in the second when veteran power forward Jarome Iginla tied things up before intermission and sniped the game-winner with 2:03 left in the third. The loss snaps a three-game winning streak for the former Oiler, and also brings his GAA back up to the 3.00 mark in 13 appearances this season. Combined with a .901 save percentage, it's really tough to recommend Scrivens for anything other than an occasional spot start.

Canadiens' Ben Scrivens: Given starting nod Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scrivens will be between the pipes Wednesday against the Avalanche.

Scrivens was given the quick hook after allowing three goals on just eight shots his last time out, but Mike Condon failed to stake his claim for more playing time in conceding six goals in Monday's tilt. Coach Michel Therrien has now gone with Scrivens in five of the last six games, but the 29-year-old hardly has a firm grip on the starting role if he continues to struggle.

Canadiens' Ben Scrivens: Blown up for three goals on eight shots Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scrivens got the hook Friday after allowing three goals on eight shots in a 6-4 loss to the Sabres.

So much for Scrivens' hot streak -- a three-game stretch where he allowed just four total goals, all of which were wins. Mike Condon didn't do much better in relief, allowing two goals on 13 shots in just under two full periods of play, so it's anybody's guess who head coach Michel Therrien will turn to for Montreal's next game Monday at Arizona.

Canadiens' Ben Scrivens: In net Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scrivens will make his fourth straight start Friday when the Canadiens face the Sabres, Hockey Inside Out reports.

Scrivens, who will be seeking his fourth straight win Friday, has allowed just four goals while seeing 98 shots (.959 save percentage) over the past three games. He's surpassed Mike Condon as the team's primary keeper, but head coach Michel Therrien's goalie plan is merely to play the guy with the hot hand. And right now, that's Scrivens.

Canadiens' Ben Scrivens: Keeps good times rolling with win over Bolts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scrivens backstopped the Habs to their third consecutive win Tuesday, making 37 saves on 39 shots to down the Lightning, 4-2.

Through his first four games with the Canadiens, Scrivens looked like he was made of Swiss cheese, putting up a 3.84 GAA and .873 save mark, but he's rebounded in impressive fashion during this home stand, drawing three straight starts and giving up just four goals on 98 shots (a .959 save mark) in that span. Of course, this isn't an altogether unfamiliar story for the 29-year-old, who's been known to put together stretches of star-quality play at times, only to see his momentum dissolve into misery. Nowhere is that better illustrated than in the .922 save mark he put up two years ago followed by last season's brutal .890. Even so, coach Michel Therrien seems inclined to ride the hot hand, so Scrivens may take the majority of the starts over Mike Condon in the near term. Friday's matchup against Buffalo may present another opportune moment to roll him out in fantasy.

Canadiens' Ben Scrivens: Gets the start Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scrivens will receive the starting nod for Tuesday's game against the Lightning, Eric Engels of Sportsnet reports.

Scrivens has posted two straight dominant performances in net, setting aside 57 of 59 shots between the two contests. As a result, the 29-year-old netminder has earned another opportunity between the pipes Tuesday as the team welcomes the Lightning to town. He'll have to bring his best for the contest, as Scrivens prepares to face a team in Tampa Bay that's averaged 4.50 goals per game in two February contests.
