  • Canadiens' Nikita Scherbak: Will miss last two games

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/4/18) Scherbak will not be in action for the Habs' final two contests of the 2017-18 season after suffering a concussion, Eric Engels of Sportsnet reports.

    Since coming into the lineup in February, Scherbak logged six points in 24 outings, along with 39 shots and 17 hits. In the minors, the winger scored over a point per game with the Rocket (30 points in 26 appearances). If he can secure a permanent spot in the Habs' lineup next season, the Russian could provide decent mid-range value.

    Canadiens' Nikita Scherbak: Scores shortie in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/22/18) Scherbak scored a short-handed goal, had two shots, blocked a shot and finished plus-1 over 13:37 of ice time in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to Pittsburgh.

    Scherbak has some offensive potential, but he's hampered by an impotent lineup and stuck on the third line. Wednesday's loss officially eliminated the Canadiens from postseason contention, so all efforts should be on developing guys like Scherbak, who, unlike other recent first-round draft picks, appears to be part of the team's future.

    Canadiens' Nikita Scherbak: Scores in Tuesday's win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/14/18) Scherbak scored a goal and had three shots over 12:38 of ice time in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Stars.

    The goal was his third in 16 games and was part of a hopeful team effort Tuesday, when Scherbak joined fellow youngsters Artturi Lehkonen (two goals) and Brendan Gallagher (one) on the scoresheet. With this season done and dusted, Montreal's focus is on developing those young stars for 2018-19. Scherbak's playing time has dipped some since he was initially called up in late February, but the Canadiens are in position to give the 22-year-old ample playing time over the final 12 games.

    Canadiens' Nikita Scherbak: Healthy scratch Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/11/18) Scherbak did not play Saturday against Tampa Bay.

    Scherbak had gone point-less over the last four games, which could contribute to coach Claude Julien scratching him, but guys always go through scoring droughts. Perhaps Julien is upset with the rookie's play, but nothing like that has been articulated. Nonetheless, it's a curious move on the coach's part.

    Canadiens' Nikita Scherbak: Scores in return

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/1/18) Scherbak scored a goal with one shot and one block over 14:18 of ice time in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Islanders.

    Scherbak scored in his return to the lineup after a four-game absence while in the AHL with Laval. The 22-year-old was the trailer on a rush when he took a pass from Brendan Gallagher and lifted the puck over Jaroslav Halak's pad, giving him goals in two straight games with Montreal. During his previous stint with the club, he skated on one of the top lines, but he was predominantly with the fourth line Wednesday. Scherbak's shown enough potential offensively to warrant a larger role and will certainly get an opportunity over the final 19 games.
