Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Sent down in likely paper move
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudon was demoted to AHL Laval on Saturday, Arpon Basu of The Athletic reports.

The Canadiens have been sending Hudon down on off days to preserve cap space, so expect him to be recalled ahead of the team's next game Tuesday in Pittsburgh, as Montreal only has 11 healthy forwards on the roster.

Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Healthy scratch Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudon was not in the active lineup for Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Islanders.

Hudon had appeared in eight straight games -- all Montreal losses -- before Tuesday's healthy scratch. He certainly was not the reason for the Canadiens' eight-game losing streak, but he accomplished little during his time in the active lineup. Matthew Peca was called up from AHL Laval earlier in the day and took Hudon's spot.

Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Recalled from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudon was promoted from AHL Laval and is back up with the Habs, per the NHL media site.

Hudon's brief demotion was likely a paper transaction, as the team never officially announced the move. The Quebec native should be a near lock for a spot in the lineup while Paul Byron (knee) and Jonathan Drouin (wrist) remain on the shelf.

Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Sent to AHL affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Canadiens assigned Hudon to AHL Laval on Sunday, TSN reports.

Hudon notched his first point of the season Saturday night against the Rangers. Moving Hudon down leaves only 11 healthy forwards on Montreal's roster, so they'll likely need to recall another player before Tuesday's divisional showdown against the Bruins.

Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Has assist, but minus-3 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudon had one assist, one shot and finished minus-3 in Saturday's 6-5 loss to the Rangers.

Hudon moved up to the third line for the game and had a season-high 12:49 of ice time, which included 3:52 on the second power-play unit. Other than his assist Saturday, Hudon has not moved the needle much in four games with Montreal this season.

Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Practices on power play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudon skated on the third line and the top power-play unit during Friday's practice, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

Hudon, who has spent the last week shuttling between the NHL and AHL Laval, was on the Canadiens' fourth line but will receive a significant promotion for Saturday's game against the Rangers. In his three games with Montreal, Hudon has averaged a minuscule 9:20 of ice time with a total of 52 seconds on the power play.

Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Summoned from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Habs recalled Hudon from AHL Laval on Thursday.

Hudon's recall comes on the heels of Jonathan Drouin's placement on injured reserve with wrist surgery forthcoming and Paul Byron's (knee) announced four-week absence. Hudon will presumably draw into the lineup as the 12th forward Saturday against the Rangers and should be a candidate for similar appearances moving forward.

Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Sent down Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudon was reassigned to AHL Laval after Wednesday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Senators.

Hudon continues to bounce between leagues. He posted three shots on goal, one hit and a minus-1 rating in the contest. Expect Hudon to return to the big club soon -- most likely for Montreal's next game Saturday at home against the Rangers -- his demotion leaves just 11 healthy forwards on the Canadiens' roster.

Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Back on fourth line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudon had one shot, two hits and one blocked shot over 10:06 of ice time in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Blue Jackets.

Hudon was summoned back to the NHL after injuries to Jonathan Drouin (wrist) and Paul Byron (knee) required surgery. He skated on the fourth line with Nate Thompson and Nick Cousins. Both Drouin (eight weeks) and Byron (four weeks) will miss significant time, so there is an opportunity for Hudon, who played himself out of a regular role with the Habs last season.

Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Summoned to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudon was recalled from AHL Laval on Sunday and will travel with the team to Columbus on Tuesday.

Hudon has appeared in just one NHL game this season but may draw into the lineup for Tuesday's contest as the Canadiens are dealing with a few injuries. The 25-year-old forward has nine goals and 11 points in 17 AHL contests. Assuming he plays Tuesday, Hudon will skate in a limited, bottom-line role.

Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudon was reassigned to AHL Laval after Saturday's game versus the Devils, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca

Hudon skated only 7:55 with two hits and a shot on goal during Saturday's game. He was in the lineup due to Paul Byron being sidelined by a lower-body injury. Hudon will remain near the top of the list for callups when the Canadiens are in need of a forward.

Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Promoted to top level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudon was recalled by Montreal on Saturday.

The decision to promote Hudon comes after the Canadiens placed Jonathan Drouin on injured reserve with an upper-body injury. In 17 games this season with AHL Laval, Hudon has nine goals and 11 points and will certainly hope to benefit from Montreal's egalitarian approach on offense after having little success to this point in his NHL career. He's yet to feature in an NHL game in 2019-20, with the forward's best season at the top level coming a couple of seasons ago, in 2017-18, when Hudon amassed 30 points over 72 appearances.

Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Biding time at Laval
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudon is skating on the top line at AHL Laval, Herb Zurkowsky of the Montreal Gazette reports. He has two goals, an assist and is minus-2 over seven games.

The 25-year-old Hudon is on a line with prospect Ryan Poehling and AHL veteran Alex Belzile. Rocket head coach Joel Bouchard is encouraging the offensive-minded forward to play with his instincts and not overthink the game. "He needs to have a style of play that will make him think less and be more engaged in the play," Bouchard explained. "He's really good when he's decisive." Hudon made a mark for himself in 2017-18 when he appeared in 72 games for Montreal (10 goals, 20 assists) but dropped off to 32 games last season and didn't dress for the final 22 games. Canadiens head coach Claude Julien cited Hudon's need to play the entire sheet of ice and not just in the offensive zone. His NHL experience puts him on the shortlist of potential callups should injuries hit forwards at the parent club, but he needs to impress Bouchard. "I don't think Charles is far, but he has work to do. That's why he's here with us," Bouchard said. "The quicker a player recognizes that, the quicker he tries to be himself ... with improving things. Now it's for Charles to step up and do it."

Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Lands in minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudon was reassigned to AHL Laval on Monday.

Hudon was limited to a mere 32 games with the Habs last season, in which he notched five points while averaging 11:40 of ice time. The winger should be atop the list of potential call-ups throughout the 2019-20 campaign, but may have to log some time in the minors for the first time since 2016-17.

Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Inks one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudon agreed to terms on a one-year, $800,000 contract with Montreal on Friday.

Hudon didn't see a ton of action this past season, but he did stick with the big club for the entirety of the campaign. In his 32 appearances, the 25-year-old notched just three goals, two assists and 50 shots while averaging 11:40 of ice time. The winger will likely once again find himself watching from the press box on a regular basis this year.

Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Files for arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudon filed for salary arbitration Friday.

Hudon declined the qualifying offer that Montreal extended to him June 25. The Canadian appeared in 32 games last season after seeing action in 72 contests in 2017-18. Hudon's 30 points (10 goals, 20 assists) in 2017-18 could be his bargaining chip heading into discussions of a new salary for the upcoming season, but the winger could also be eying the slight chance at the opportunity to be an unrestricted free agent if negotiations fall through.

Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Declines qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudon has turned down the qualifying offer he received from the Canadiens, Chantal Machabee of RDS reports.

Hudon only appeared in 32 games last season after logging 72 contests with the Canadiens in 2016-17, so he's likely hoping that declining Montreal's qualifying offer will lead to an offer sheet from another team and a change of scenery. The 2012 fifth-round pick's outlook for the upcoming campaign should become clearer in the coming weeks.

Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Facing uncertain future
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

After appearing in 72 games a year ago, 2018-19 saw Hudon play only 32 games and finish with five points.

Hudon took a major step back this season, as the winger simply was unable to gain the trust of Claude Julien and the Montreal coaching staff. In 32 games, the 24-year-old averaged 11:40 TOI, nearly three minutes less than his 2017-18 average. Hudon is slated to become a restricted free agent at season's end.

Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Extra forward at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudon was replaced on the fourth line by Dale Weise at Tuesday's practice, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports.

The Canadiens' flurry of activity since Saturday's loss to the Maple Leafs was a sign that Hudon's playing time was about to take a hit. He had started six of seven games, including ample minutes on the power play, before Montreal acquired Weise and Nate Thompson within the last week. Those two will skate on the fourth line with Nicolas Deslauriers on Thursday in Nashville.

Canadiens' Charles Hudon: Makes third straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudon was active for Saturday's game against the Devils and contributed five hits in a 3-2 overtime loss.

Hudon, who started two of the three games during Paul Byron's suspension before the break, was expected to take a seat with Byron returning Saturday. Instead, Kenny Agostino and Michael Chaput were healthy scratches. Despite his fourth-line status, Hudon was handed 3:06 of power-play ice time. That's more about Montreal's abysmal power play (12.8 percent, 30th) than it is about Hudon. He's shown some offensive acumen in the AHL, and the Habs are looking for something to spark the power play.
